Welcome to the Southern Crescent District Website!

The Southern Crescent District is in the Atlanta Area Council, serving Scouts, Leaders and Parents in Clayton County and South Fulton County. See the BeAScout website for location and contact information for Cub Scout Packs (Kindergarten through 5th Grade are Cub Scouts), Scouts BSA Troops (end of 5th Grade to age 18), and Venturing Crews. 

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 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.  Deciding between Sports and Scouts (you can do both):  see this clip.  Like us on our Facebook Page!

Unit Charter Renewal Time

Posted on Dec 5 2022 - 8:46am

Packs, Troops and Crews operate under an Annual Charter from the BSA Organization.  Now is the time for Charter Renewal for all Units except those that chartered in the last half of 2022 (those are automatically rechartered through 2023).

For how to do it, see these resources:

  • Attend an Atlanta Area Council weekly, virtual Membership Renewal Workshop on select days from 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm., with the next (maybe last) event on Thursday, December 8

For more information and resources, check out these National Charter Renewal Resources.
