Planning Tools





The Bert Adams Scout Reservation was originally founded in 1928 in Vinings, Georgia.  The new Bert Adams Scout Reservation, located outside Covington, GA, was opened in 1960 and has been a favorite location for camping, activities, and training. Through the generosity of our Scouting supporters, Bert Adams now provides NEW state-of-the-art facilities that help create a unique and quality Scouting program that is only at Bert Adams! Scouts can ride their bikes to the J. Erskine Love, Jr. Dining Hall, swimming pool, Fort Brumley, John S. Langford Nature Center, BB and Archery Range, and new camping neighborhoods! 

Located near Covington, Georgia, Bert Adams Scout Reservation provides nearly 1,300-acres for long-term resident and weekend camping, training events, and lots of outdoor Scouting fun. Thousands of Scouts and Scouters come to Bert Adams each year to participate in Boy Scout, Webelos and JROTC Summer Camps, Order of the Arrow Events, Venturing and Explorer Outings, Cub Family Camping, Cub World Events, District Camporee’s, Cub Pack Picnics, Wood Badge Training, NYLT Training, and many other Scouting events.
