Westchester-Putnam Council is proud to have partnerships with places like the Microsoft Store that can provide day programs for Cub and Boy Scouts. Many offer expertise in subjects that are belt loops and pins or merit badges. When the scout completes all requirements, his unit can award the loop, pin or merit badge.
Westchester-Putnam also provides fun and exciting day events at Durland Scout Reservation which fulfill requirements for belt loops, pins and merit badges.
