Wood Badge 2020

Posted on Jun 23 2020 - 8:34am

What is Wood Badge?  There’s plenty of lore out there about what takes place on a Wood Badge course.  I know when I was a new leader the Wood Badge folks seemed to have drank way too much Kool-Aid.  With time I decided it was time for me to take the plunge.  What I found was a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

2020 Cub Day Camp - June 8-11

Posted on May 19 2020 - 5:52pm

Cub Day Camp - Postponed, New Date TBA

The Button Gwinnett Day Camp is an exciting part of the Cub Scout journey.  As the coronavirus situation unfolded, we continued to make plans and hold out hope that Day Camps would open on time.

Based upon the State of Georgia guidelines and the current Center for Disease Control’s recommendation for youth, we have made the difficult decision to delay day camps in June. 

This summer, we are exploring new options to bring the Day Camp experience and excitement to your Scout!  You should be receiving a survey soon which will help guide our plans to bring you the experiences you deserve while remaining safe.

For your convenience, we will be issuing full refunds for all June Day Camp registrations.  Please allow up to three weeks to receive your refund.  If you have any questions or concerns, please contact one of us.

Please check the council website https://www.atlantabsa.org/bg-daycamp and Facebook page www.facebook.com/groups/ButtonGwinnettDayCamp where details will be posted as they are made available.

Thank you for being a part of our Cub Scouting family.  We hope you and yours are safe and healthy during this time.  We look forward to seeing you at camp as soon as we can gather together again.
