Come and Celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the Atlanta Area Council with Campout 100!
This is a major event that will give our Scouts an experience like a National Jamboree as we celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the Atlanta Area Council in 2016.
This is a fun event for Boy Scout Troops and Venture Crews. We are expecting at least 5,000 participants at this extraordinary weekend event. This is an ideal first time outing for your new Crossover Scouts. We want your adults engaged as either leaders or as Staff, and we want all of our Scouts and Scouters to have a FUN and memorable experience

CAMPOUT 100 PROGRAM
Activities will be held throughout the Camp with many centered in Camp Gorman. Some of our Marquis Activities for Campout 100 will include:
- Angry Birds
- Bubble Soccer
- Human Foosball
- OA Great Race
Some of these events are Campout-wide competitions. Trophies will be presented to the Top Units during the Arena Show.
Arena Stage – There will be activities on the Arena Stage throughout the weekend starting with a Friday evening Stage Show, Opening Ceremonies on Saturday morning, Saturday afternoon activities, and a spectacular fireworks display.
Worship Services – On Sunday morning there will be religious Services for all major faiths. It is expected that Units should plan to stay Sunday morning to participate in these services to demonstrate their Duty to God and their faith.
Aquatics - The swimming area in the lake and pool will be off limits. The only aquatic activity allowed at the CAMPOUT 100 will be fishing.
Electronics – Every Leader (adult and youth) should have a cell phone with them. For the OA Great Race, as well as other events, Scouts will be able to utilize Smart Phones to enable and enhance their participation.
OA Great Race – This will be a premiere event of Campout 100 hosted by Egwa Tawa Dee – the Order of the Arrow Lodge. Patrols will be assigned either a morning or afternoon time slot to compete for the honor of the best Patrol in the Council. Pre-registration will be required.
The OA Great Race is an inter-patrol competition designed to challenge patrols across all facets of their scouting skills, knowledge, and teamwork over a three-hour period during which time patrols will try to complete as many events as they choose in order to achieve the best overall score possible. The OA Great Race is open to both BSA Troop patrols and Venturing crews. Membership in the Order of the Arrow (OA) is not required to compete in the OA Great Race. Click here for more information.
TRADING POST / MEMORABILIA
We will be offering 24 unique products for the Campout 100. These are priced from $2.00 and up and all may be viewed in our online catalog. All online orders need to be placed by the January 15, 2016 deadline. Many of the items are available only through pre-order. There will be very limited Campout 100 stock for sale at the event. Double-check the sizes of apparel, as there will be no apparel stock to make exchanges. Some items, such as coins and belt buckles, need to be ordered before our January 15th deadline, so supplies of these will be limited. Other than the coins and belt buckles, we can guarantee all orders submitted by January 15, 2016 will be filled. Pre-orders will be filled in the order that they are received. Troops and Crews may add their unit numbers to their caps if they pre-order. Funds from these sales help offset the cost of the event. Thank you for your support!
