BSA national training certification courses completed in other councils are accepted in our council, as long as the training received is compliant with national standards. Adjacent councils have historically welcomed our Scouters (see below).

Atlanta Area Council (Program Center can provide more details: 770-989-8820)
Because the Cub Scout Shooting Sports Committee team isn’t quite ready to launch, our BASR Camp Shooting Sports Staff is lending a hand by offering TWO NEW courses during other events already scheduled. To register, contact Program Center:

  • April 11-12: During Cub Scout Spring Fling at BASR . Classroom 7-10 Friday night, practical 8:30-2:30 Sat.
    Go to link: to register.
  • May 25: Sunday, during Camp Staff Training Weekend at BASR

Additional course dates AND LOCATIONS are expected to be under development; we’ll get the news out ASAP but have nothing new at this moment (April 8th).

Flint River Council (770-227-4556)
Contact Laura Lovell, Director of Camping (C404-668-6299) or go to on the CALENDAR to register directly for BE PREPARED, a weekend event with Saturday rangemaster course (register just for the course).

  • March 15: Lawhorn Scouting Base/Camp Thunder, Griffin (about 50 mi. fm I-75/Riverdale).

North East Georgia Council (706-693-2446)
Contact: Sharon Fragale (frah-GAH-leh) ext. 106, Register at least 2 wks ahead if possible by contacting her directly with name, which ‘Cub Scout Shooting Sports’ course date you want, email & postal address, telephone # and your unit type/number. Courses fill quickly; if one overfills NEGa will serve their own volunteers first, then guests. There may be a nominal fee for out-of-council participants. All these courses are on a Saturday 9 a.m. – 1 p.m.:

  • March 22: Jefferson (up I-85) at their council service center
  • April 5: Scoutland Adventure Camp, Gainesville
  • May 3: Camp Rainey Mountain, Clayton

Northwest Georgia Council (706-235-5545)
It’s been difficult to get info from NWGa, but I’m trying. I believe their training would be at Camp Sidney Dew, Armuchee (east of Rome) – an easy trip for our northwestern districts. There may also be an option closer to Cartersville. I’m checking w/ a Senior DE, and will let you know if I learn anything that will help you.

As I learn course dates and details, I will share those via email.
Keep an eye out for updates!

2014 Twilight Camp



Hear Ye, Hear Ye Cub Scouts of the Appalachian Trail District!

Your presence is requested at the most jovial of all Twilight Camps in the Council. We are in need of knights/madiens who are in the grades of 1st thru 5th as of Fall 2014.

You will need to park your steed Monday, June 9 through Friday, June 13, 2014 in the stables of Hickory Flat Fellowship Church. It is located in the beautiful fields of green at 5301 Hickory Flat Hwy, Canton Ga.

A small pittance of $85 per knight/maiden (as siblings are allowed) will be required. If your trusted caregivers would grace us with their presence and elbow grease for the entire week they shall receive a reward of $10 at the end of camp (one reward per family).







Has your unit scheduled their Annual Friends of Scouting Presentation? This annual campaign is vital to the support of the Atlanta Area Council providing program, camping facilities, and training support to grow and strengthen the Scouting program. 100% of the contributions stay in the Atlanta Area Council.

Send the date of your Blue and Gold Banquet or your next Court of Honor to our District Executive, Lindsey Roberson, 770-989-8820 x 2889 to schedule your presentation.

One of the strengths of Scouting worldwide is the fact that many people pull together to coordinate activities and a first class character education program for our youth. In the Atlanta Area Council, we have thousands of volunteers who donate their time, talent and resources to make sure our Scouts receive the best program and support available. The Atlanta Area Council, Boy Scouts of America needs and appreciates your continued support! For information on Friends of Scouting as well as other ways to give, Click Here.

Friends of Scouting helps secure the operating funds needed by the Atlanta Area Council to provide the many services offered to support unit programs, such as training, insurance, program materials, advancement materials, camping facilities and programs, Council and district activities, and much more.
