Let’s go camping! The Trailblazer Event for the Atlanta Area Council is coming up in October and we’re ready to roll. If you are interested in this whole-family camping event, please register!
Trailblazer Adventure Camp is a day full of fun for Cub Scouts and their families this Fall at Bert Adams Scout Camp.

Learn how to cast a fishing rod. Bring your best skits and join us for a campfire Saturday evening.

POLICIES AND THINGS TO KNOW
You may drive cars to your assigned campsite to unload. Afterward, move cars to designated parking spaces in a paved parking lot. Do not park along the road by the campsites or in the campsites. On Saturday, all gates and roads near program areas will be closed to vehicle traffic during Saturday events (8:30-5:00 PM). Cars should be left in those designated parking areas. Gates will be reopened at 5:00 pm.
Individual rank specific “Passports” will track requirements. At the end of each class, the instructor will announce the requirements that he or she was able to cover. Den leaders/parents may initial the sheets at their discretion as the instructor announces the requirements that were completed.
