Scouting is all about fun with a purpose! For more than 100 years, Scouting has helped build future leaders by combining educational activities and lifelong values with fun and adventure in the outdoors. We care passionately about what is happening to kids and our communities – and are dedicated to supporting an exciting, quality program that builds better young people and our future leaders.
Here in metro-Atlanta, Scouting continues to improve families and our community by serving more than 32,000 youth in 13 counties: Carroll, Cherokee, Clayton, Cobb, DeKalb, Douglas, Fulton, Gwinnett, Haralson, Newton, Paulding, Pickens, Rockdale. The Atlanta Area Council is divided into 13 geographical areas called districts. Each district is made up of local Scouting units called Cub Scout Packs, Boy Scout Troops, Venturing Crews, and Exploring Posts that are chartered to a local school, religious organization, or community center. Scouting activities happen all year-long in your local neighborhood or at one of our beautiful scout camps.
If you want to get involved with Scouting, or have a question about the exciting opportunities Scouting offers Atlanta’s families, please contact us at 770-989-8820.
