Atlanta Area Council Scouts BSA Troop Program Resources

Posted on Sep 18 2023 - 2:17pm

We hope that your Scouts BSA Troop programs are off to a great start this school year, and we want to be sure you are aware of resources to help you and your Scouts have a fun, exciting and rewarding program in the months to come.  Here are some key Scouts BSA Resources from the Atlanta Area Council and the National BSA to keep you on that trail:

National Troop Program Resources.  Did you know?  There are very good pages of resources for Scouts BSA Troops and Leaders – not just for Adult Leaders (advisors) but their Senior Patrol Leaders, Patrol Leaders and other officers who want to have a dynamic program - not the "same old, same old".

Atlanta Area Council Resources.  Includes the following:

Service Ideas: Service Projects and Simple Ways to Help

Posted on Sep 18 2023 - 2:15pm

A Scout is Helpful.  The fuller explanation of this Scout Law is: "Volunteer to help others without expecting a reward".  To help Packs, Dens, Troops, Crews, Scouts and their families, we can share ideas about ways to help.  Our service project page is a compendium of ideas about what Scouts can do, from large "service projects" that can be organized by Scouts and/or Units, to existing service opportunities that you can join in, as well as small ways that a Scout can help others (for younger Scouts, with help from the family).  More here.
