Webelos will participate in a day and evening schedule of advancement and fun, much like Scout Camporee. Most of the activities are designed to help the Webelos complete their required adventures prior to bridging.
As Scouts, we know how fortunate we are to have a warm meal every night — whether around the campfire or at the kitchen table. And we know that not everyone is so lucky.
Each month the Northern Ridge Training team offers a workshop for youth and their parents. The purpose is to help Scouts and their parents through the process of obtaining the rank of Eagle Scout.
The Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills (IOLS) course builds and expands on the concepts and themes introduced in Scoutmaster Position-Specific Training and provides Scouters with the confidence to take youth into the outdoors.
The Atlanta Area Council sponsors training courses to help train Scout Leaders to enable Scouts, Scouters, and others to improve their shooting skills and shooting knowledge.
Over 80 classes for Scout leaders, all taught by Scouters with experience and 'how to' skills! Some classes will be youth appropriate. All are invited for a great day of Scouting!
The Boy Scouts of America through the Commissioner teams supports a monthly Roundtable all over America. These meetings are reminiscent of the legendary King Arthur’s Round Table in which knights assembled to discuss the betterment of the people (Scouts) they were serving and watching over.

Enter the 35th annual Scout Life reading contest now! Write a one-page report titled “The Best Book I Read This Year” and enter it in the Scout Life 2022 “Say Yes to Reading!” contest.
The book can be fiction or nonfiction, but the report has to be in your own words — 500 words tops. Enter in one of these three age categories:
First-place winners in each age category will receive a $100 Scout Shop gift card. Second-place winners will receive a $75 gift card; third-place winners will receive a $50 gift card.
Everyone who enters will receive a free patch like the one on this page.
The patch is a temporary insignia, so it can be worn on the right pocket of the Scout uniform shirt. Proudly display it there or on another item such as a vest, plaque or trophy! In the coming years, you’ll have the opportunity to earn other patches.
The contest is open to all Scout Life readers. Be sure to include your name, address, age and school grade on the entry. Send your report, along with a business-sized self-addressed stamped envelope, to this address:
