Sign Up for Scout Challenge -- Troops, Crews and Staff Volunteers

Posted on Jan 17 2019 - 10:52am

Following on the success of 2016’s Campout 100, Scout Challenge 2019 - to be held March 22-14, 2019 - is the first council-wide camping event of the Atlanta Area Council’s second century for Troops and Crews.  From Tina  Kerr, Scout Challenge 2019 - District Coordinator:  "We are asking for at least 2 x volunteers per unit to assist with our Program Activities and Games.  The list of all Scout Challenge 2019 Program Activities and Games can be found in the attached document.  Review with your District's Troops & Crews.  We will have several of our SC19 staff on hand to help you register your District and to answer any questions you might have.  Your primary contact and our SC19 Program Chair is Dave Bone from Button-Gwinnett District - davebone@me.com

Also remember to have all of your volunteers and your Units register via this link:  https://www.campbertadams.org/Scout-Challenge  

Cost per volunteer is $20 and includes a t-shirt & patch.  You can request to camp with your Unit or with the Staff.  An additional fee is included if you prefer to eat with the staff (Yum, yum!  My favorite!)   

We are looking forward to the BIGGEST council-wide campout in the AAC with all of YOU in 2019!!"

Cub Challenge is Coming Too: March 15-17 at Woodruff Scout Camp (Spring Fling is Still a Thing April 5-7)

Posted on Jan 17 2019 - 10:51am

Cub Challenge 2019 (March 15-17) is the first council-wide Cub-o-Ree ... ever!  It will be a weekend of fun games and activities designed specifically for Cub Scouts. Join over 500 of your fellow Scouts and family members for the biggest Cub camping weekend in Metro-Atlanta. Packs from across the Atlanta Area Council will camp jamboree style at Woodruff for three days and two nights.  Register at Cub Challenge 2019 (March 15-17).  OK, that's cool (maybe too cool), so if you want Spring Fling, it's still a thing, and you can sign up for April 5-7 at Bert Adams.  

Scoutbook is Free

Posted on Jan 17 2019 - 10:49am

See this Bryan on Scouting Blog for Details.  Since ScoutBook was announced to be the new version of "internet advancement reporting" through a yet-to-be-released function called "Scoutbook Lite", this is going to be worth investigating by every Unit.  On a related note, in a private message the National Director of Cub Scouting reports that the (not very) old "Cub Hub" or "Learning Library" has been allowed to languish (they never even updated the requirements when so many changed in the 16-17 program year) because ... they will use ScoutBook to share information.
