SUMMER MERIT BADGE PROGRAM

The Benjamin Tallmadge District of Suffolk County Council, BSA is hosting a Summer Merit Badge Program for 2021. This year it will be held Outdoors, on the grounds of the Smithtown Historical Society,  August 3rd and August 10th from 7:00 PM through 8:30 PM.  A Scout will need to attend both scheduled evenings to have the opportunity to complete the requirements for a badge.  Depending on the badge chosen, prerequisites may be required as well.

Social distancing rules will be followed according to the federal, state, local, and BSA recommendations in effect at the time of the class.

Space is limited. Badges will be removed from registration selection once the class is full.  Badges being offered are Citizenship in the Community, Citizenship in the Nation, and Personal Management.

There is no fee for this program, but registration is required.

The program is run entirely by BSA registered and trained volunteers. While every effort will be made to cover a Merit Badge completely, the scout is responsible for completing all material to the satisfaction of the Merit Badge Counselor according to BSA policy.

Registration is online at https://forms.office.com/r/nBBKPFBknB  Please submit only one registration. You will get a message at the conclusion that your registration is received. Confirmation emails will be sent manually, so please be patient.

Important:  Scouts should register only after they have discussed their interest in the merit badge with their Scoutmaster and the Scoutmaster advises the merit badge is appropriate for the scout at this time.  A Blue Card signed by the Scoutmaster is required to be brought to the merit badge sessions.
