See this Google Map for location and contact information for Cub Scout Packs (boys in 1st through 5th Grade are Cub Scouts), Troops and more Pack information are at the BeAScout website

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!

Why does my South Fulton District "EBlast" email say "Troop 1 EBlast"??

Posted on Mar 10 2009 - 3:58pm

Because the South Fulton District Website is using an "off the shelf" troop website software (but a pretty darn good one!), the "Eblast" says "Troop 1", and there are some other quirks, especially in the so called "Troop Roster", where every District Member is entered twice, as an "Adult Leader" (applicable if the person is performing a "District" leadership role), and as a "Scout" (and in that capacity, if serving in a Unit and working with the youth, noted as a "Youth Leader" if he or she is one of the top two leaders of the Unit, such as Scoutmaster or Committee Chair).

All sessions are necessary to complete the training.

Are You Trained? (Please report your Youth Protection Training. Thanks!)

Posted on Feb 24 2009 - 12:18pm

A Request to All, and an announcement: The request is that if you've taken Youth Protection Training in the last two years, would you please email cubleadertraining@southfultonscouting.com (we're reporting total training to the Council Training Committee, and the records are really really thin; Troop or Pack 631 leaders who have reported to me don't need to repeat). Note: Youth Protection Training can be taken "on line" at On Line Training, and is required to be re-taken (refreshed) every two years. See the Leader Training page for more information and other Training Options.

Cub Leader Training is "ON" for Feb. 21 9:30-2 at Woodward PRIMARY School

Posted on Feb 18 2009 - 11:09am

The next date for Cub Leader Position Specific Training is Saturday, February 21, 9:30-2:00, but you still need to sign up if you'll attend so we have sufficient materials for the group. More detail is in the Calendar Entry. Email cubleadertraining@southfultonscouting.com and/or sign up in this Cub Training Signup Survey, or Register In the Calendar Site (yeah, in that "Register", you're a "Scout") to reserve a spot. You must sign up in advance to reserve a spot (and if you know of someone who will attend or should attend, shoot the contact information to cubleadertraining@southfultonscouting.com).
