Summer Camp Staff is a Great Experience for Older Scouts!

Posted on May 1 2021 - 1:13pm

Woodruff and Bert Adams Scout Camps are looking for a few camp staff for this summer.  Working at Summer Camp is one of the best opportunities to change a young person’s life for the better. Camp Staff members must be age 15 or older, but those that are 14 can serve as a Counselor-In-Training (CIT) for a two-week volunteer experience.  Please encourage your Scouts to apply for these paid positions at https://www.atlantabsa.org/campstaff.  Got questions?  Feel free to contact Matt Rendahl, the Atlanta Area Council's Director of Camping and Customer Service at Matthew.Rendahl @ scouting.org or 770.956.3175 (Cell: 678.982.7451).

Many parents and leaders are wondering what sort of Scouting activities can be done in these continuing (but improving!) times of pandemic.  Like "Can We Meet?" and "Can We Do Outdoor Activities?" and "What are the Rules?" and "What is Safe?" ... or, "What Should We Do?"

Now Streaming: Spring Into Scouting - Yes We Can!

Posted on Apr 30 2021 - 2:10pm

Hello Cub Scout Leaders and Everyone Who Helps Cub Scout Dens and Packs:

  • Are you doing Scouting, but wish more families would join (or re-join)?
  • Are you getting ready to “start back up” and want ideas about how to do so safely with an attractive and accessible program?   
  • Are you frustrated by “fall recruiting” and want to start this spring down an easier path?   

Our plan this year is for Dens and Packs to Spring Into Scouting by developing your fun and safe den and pack program, promoting it to current (and recent) families plus new families and friends and schools and more, and to have effective peer to peer and family to family recruiting alongside your fun and safe Den and Pack events – and any “just joining” events you want to hold before fun events. 

A video training is found at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qAIhzmXs5cY, and the newly completely revised Recruiting Resources are currently posted at our very own District website
