Fall 2014 Button Gwinnett District Webelos Woods - Sept. 19-21 @ Bert Adams

Posted on Jul 10 2014 - 10:17pm

The goal of Webelos Woods is to prepare current Webelos Scouts for the transition to Boy Scouts and learn more about the the Scout Troops in the Button Gwinnett District by:
• Introducing Webelos to the Patrol Method
• giving the Webelos responsibility to plan their camping menus and duty rosters
• offering learning opportunities for Webelos to learn Scout Skills and compete with other Webelos patrols
• Learn Scout Skills from current Boy Scouts.
The “Webelos Round-Up” event is a part of the weekend. Not only will the Webelos see the Patrol Method in action with Boy Scouts, the Boy Scout Troops can talk about their programs with the Webelos Den Leaders and parents, plan joint Troop – Webelos activities and explain the Boy Scout program as it works in their Troops. For the Troops not participating, we will be happy to pass out any pamphlets or provide contact information to the parents and leaders in attendance.

2014 - 2015 Atlanta Area Council Planning Guide

Posted on May 19 2014 - 9:45am

On Saturday, April 24th, the first annual AAC Program Kick-off was held at the Vounteer Service Center.  This event was designed to assist unit leaders in planning their own calendars for the upcoming year.

Button Gwinnett was well represented, but for those that were unable to attend, attached is the final edition of the booklet that was used during the presentations.  This version includes live links to everything from camp information, training events embedded in monthly calendars, fundraising and AAC ad sponsors.  This guide is the most comprehensive planning document ever produced by the Council and should help the units in our District plan and organize events for their Scouts as well as training opportunities for their adults.

Please take the time to review this guide in it's entirety and use it as needed.  There is also a link in the Menu column of this website.
