Congratulations Gerius Patterson on the Silver Beaver Award

Posted on Feb 20 2024 - 6:48pm

The Atlanta Area Council is excited to announce Gerius Patterson as a member of the Atlanta Area Council's 2023 class of Silver Beaver Award recipients!
The Silver Beaver Award is the highest honor the Atlanta Area Council can bestow upon a volunteer in recognition of distinguished service to youth. Gerius earned his Eagle Scout rank at a young age and returned to scouting in 2007 as an adult leader serving in numerous roles at Pack 925, Pack 1513, Troop 1513, Troop 1906, and the Southern Crescent District. In 2013, he became the founding scoutmaster of Troop 1906 and is the proud father of two Eagle Scouts: Gedasse and Diallo. His dedication to Scouting and service to the Southern Crescent District have earned him this prestigious award.  Please join us in congratulating Gerius on this achievement!

Camp Cards Information - You Can Register Now For This Easy Fundraiser

Posted on Feb 20 2024 - 6:36pm

Did you know?  Camp Cards are an excellent way for Scouts to earn their way to do Scouting -- not just camping, but all of Scouting.

These cards, created in partnership with local and national businesses, offer discounts to supporters of Scouting who purchase the Camp Card. Cards are sold by Scouts to members of their community. Profits from these cards are split evenly between the council and the individual Scout. The funds a Scout earns can be used towards Summer Camp or other Scouting activities.

Units participating in this program will earn 50% commission ($5.00) for each $10 Camp Card they sell -- so, for every $10.00 card sold, your Scout earns $5.00 for themselves or their Unit. The sale begins in February and ends in April.  More information and registration information is at www.atlantabsa.org/campcards
