New Council Service Center & Scout Shop Coming

 
We are pleased to announce that we will be moving the Suffolk County Council Service Center and Scout Shop to office space within the Brookhaven Town Hall, located at One Independence Hill, Farmingville, NY within the next two months. 
 
This will be an exciting, fresh start for the Council in a modern building, with administrative office space and a Scout Shop built to our specifications.  The building is located 4 minutes from the Long Island Expressway with excellent parking, and has many amenities, including numerous meeting rooms and gathering places.
 
We want to reassure our membership that we will be providing a Scout Shop that will sell uniforms and literature, as well as advancement and program items. It is our goal to have a seamless transition from our Medford offices to One Independence Hill, with the service center offices and our Scout Shop open at all times.  Construction is underway and we are hopeful of a complete transition by March 1st.

HIGH ADVENTURE TRAINING

We are currently trying to schedule CPR/AED and Wilderness First Aid for units heading out on high adventure trips in 2022.  It would be great if you can find out plans for units in need of Wilderness First Aid for 2022. We are planning to conduct the courses at the Council service center in Medford; CPR/AED on Saturday and WFA as a blended course with the in-person portion on Sunday (actual dates TBD).   
 
Please have a leader from any units planning high adventure outings in ’22 contact me ASAP at MKLeader2@gmail.com so we can make sure all of our units are covered. There are already a number of units on the list including one going to Seabase in February. Thanks!
