A Place For Local Scouting Information.


This is an un-official page created as a gathering place for information for scout leaders from Suffolk County Long Island. The idea is for this to be a storage house of information for new and experienced leaders.
Currently Most of this information is for Cub Scout leaders but some information will be useful to all levels of scouting.
