Volunteer Request for City of Acworth's Mother-Son Campout on September 14th

Posted on Sep 7 2019 - 9:40pm

BSA volunteers continue to help the City of Acworth Parks & Recreation with their annual Mother-Son Campout and we need your help.

Cubs and Scouts are welcome to come to Proctor Landing on Saturday, September 14, 2019 at 11:00am to help non-Scouts set up tents and staff games and activities. Come for as long as you can stay and eat for free! "Class B" attire is fine for this event. We plan to have orienteering, fishing, air rockets, cooking, and crafting para-cord bracelets and t-shirt bags. Contact Jeff Starnes at jlstarnes@bellsouth.net if you can help.

Webelos Woods and Webelos Open House

Posted on Nov 2 2019 - 11:38pm

Thanks to our dedicated Membership Committee, the District's Webelos and Arrow of Light Scouts were treated to not one but two district events in October!

First, they participated in a fun, camporee-style weekend at Woodruff Scout Reservation at Webelos Woods. 130 Webelos and AOL Scouts played patrol and camp-wide games, practiced orienteering and cooking, and took part in a campfire and Scouts' Own service. The District would like to thank Leah Briick and Chris Voigt for organizing and running the event, Audrey Taylor, Nancy Domoracki, and Katie Robinson for running the Health Lodge, RJ Kolencik and Shannon Fishback for cooking for the staff, and the Scouts and Scouters of Troop 675 (boys and girls), Troop 2096, and Crew 2500 for staffing the games.

On October 22nd, we held our most successful Webelos Open House ever! 66 Arrow of Light and Webelos Scouts attended the event and had the opportunity to visit with 23 different Scouts BSA units! If you missed this event or if you missed picking up a troop information packet, a pdf copy is now available here: https://www.silvercometdistrictbsa.org/system/files/WebelosOpenHouse2019.pdf. Thanks again to Leah Briick and Chris Voigt for organizing this event that facilitates the Webelos to Scout transition. Thank you also to Due West United Methodist Church for hosting the event for our district.

World Conservation Award has new requirements, effective immediately

Posted on Dec 17 2016 - 3:27pm

The BSA National Conservation and Environment Task Force has announced new requirements for the Cub Scout, Boy Scout and Venturing/Sea Scout versions of the World Conservation Award. The new requirements, which are now in effect, can be found at this link.

Whether you know the World Conservation Award as the “panda patch” or as the award that encourages Scouts and Venturers to think globally and act locally to improve and conserve our environment, there’s something you need to know.

The new requirements reflect the recent changes to the Cub Scout advancement program and the addition of the Eagle-required Sustainability merit badge in the Boy Scout program.
