Welcome to the Southern Crescent District Website!

The Southern Crescent District (formerly the Tara District and South Fulton 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 "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!  Need more information?

Spring Recruiting: It's Not Complicated ...

Posted on Apr 1 2014 - 9:23pm

Do kids and families want to join Scouting to "go to meetings" or to "do fun stuff"?  It's Not Complicated.  They want to do Fun Stuff.  Show them what fun stuff you'll do this spring and summer and next fall and winter . . . with a “do it yourself” recruiting flyer like this, which you can create with this Word template “here’s what we’re doin’ and when” flyer template you can edit yourself with your own pictures.  This and more tools are in our Recruiting Tools page.  How could a customized “Home Made Flyer” like this be used?
