The Southern Crescent District is in the Atlanta Area Council, serving Scouts, Leaders and Parents in Clayton County and South Fulton County. See this Google Map for the location and contact information for our Cub Scout Packs (boys in 1st through 5th Grade are Cub Scouts), and a map showing Troops and more Pack information can be found at the BeAScout website

For an overview of Scouting, see this "We Are Scouts" video or this Pack 1030 animoto; or this "What Scouting Does Right" video; or this video from the May, 2010 Campout of the Century; or this one about Cub Scout Camping and Outdoor Activities!  Or this one from a Michigan Troop (the activities depicted have been done by local Troops too!).  Or these.  Trying to decide between Sports and Scouts (you can do both):  see this clip.  Like us on our Facebook Page!
