Atlanta Area Council Scouts BSA Troop Program Resources

Posted on Feb 6 2023 - 9:06am

We hope that your Scouts BSA Troop programs are off to a great start this school year, and we want to be sure you are aware of resources to help you and your Scouts have a fun, exciting and rewarding program in the months to come.  Here are some key Scouts BSA Resources from the Atlanta Area Council and the National BSA to keep you on that trail:

National Troop Program Resources.  Did you know?  There are very good pages of resources for Scouts BSA Troops and Leaders – not just for Adult Leaders (advisors) but their Senior Patrol Leaders, Patrol Leaders and other officers who want to have a dynamic program - not the "same old, same old".

Some Upcoming Activities for Scouts You Might Like

Posted on Jan 31 2023 - 2:01pm

From ideas shared at and around the recent District Roundtable Meeting, here are some activities that Scouts in your Packs, Troops and/or Crews might like:

See these and more at our Activity Ideas, Month by Month page:

February: Pinewood Derby?  Scout Sunday   

  • Celebrate Scouting's Birthday, through a Scout Sunday or Scout Sabbath observance and/or some other fun event or, maybe, a service project for your Chartered Organization or community (that you can record in your Journey to Excellence Service Project Website) ... and what better way to celebrate Scouting than Service, like Scouting for Food Service Project, which can now be done at any time. 
  • There is an Atlanta Area Council Cub Scout Stem Day on February 25.
  • Maybe a Pack Pinewood Derby? 
  • OK, you might be thinking "Where is the Blue & Gold Banquet? -- isn't that required to be in February?"  Nope. Doesn't have to be, though it often is -- if that suits your Pack.  Some Packs have more fun if (1) more Scouts have finished their "Rank Badge" and get recognized at the Banquet, and (2) Den Leaders don't have to RushRushRush to get done by February.  So feel free to: Keep It Simple, Make It Fun – do your Banquet when you're Done!!  
  • Or go somewhere on the Great Big List of Places to Go and Things to Do ... find something your families like. 

March: Scouting for Food Service & More Outdoors?      

Enjoy the Ride!
