Welcome to the Benjamin Tallmadge District web site.
Greetings from the staff of the Benjamin Tallmadge District !

The National Eagle Scout Association has college scholarship opportunities.
Click HERE to go to their website. Hurry, there is an October deadline!
DO YOU HAVE INDIVIDUAL SCOUTS, OR YOUR OWN CREW, THAT WANT TO GO TO THE PHILMONT SCOUT RANCH NEXT SUMMER? Do you want to go and NOT do all of the physical arrangements yourself?
The Suffolk County Council has a Philmont trek planned from Saturday, July 23 to Saturday, August 6, 2016. We'll take care of all the airline, transportation and sight-seeing arrangements. Final cost is expected to be in the area of $2400.00 per person, when everything is confirmed. Click HERE to be directed to the High Adventure Page of the Council website and download a Youth or Adult application and reserve your spot in the contingent!
POPULATE YOUR "PIN"
Currently the primary method for new families and interested youth to find out more about Scouting is the BeAScout.org website. Individuals can visit the site, put in their zip code and find out units in their area. When they click on a unit they are given contact information for that unit so they may either call or send an email to find out more.
We realize many of you may NOT be the Top Leader or Committee Chairperson of the unit but we need you to check out your pin at www.BeAScout.org
. Put in your zip code and when the units come up click on your unit and see what information is listed. If the information is the council it needs to be changed to the unit information. Now if it's not populated here is the information you need to populate the pin. Please be aware that Cubmasters, Scoutmasters, Crew Advisors, along with the Unit Committee Chair and the Chartered Organization Representatives are the only volunteers who have first-time access to set up the BeAScout.org pin. These leaders will then be able to set up a total of 6 individuals in the unit to access the editing features of BeAScout.org.
