The Cherokee District of the Northeast Georgia Council serves nine counties: Clarke, Elbert, Franklin, Greene, Hart, Madison, Morgan, Oconee and Oglethorpe. We serve approximately 100 units (Cub Scout Packs, Boy Scout Troops, Venture Crews and Explorer Posts). Through these units we provide program to more than 3,000 young people involving more than 600 adult volunteers.
The mission of the Boy Scouts of America is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law.
- Scout Oath: On my honor I will do my best to do my duty to God and my country and to obey the Scout Law; to help other people at all times; to keep myself physically strong, mentally awake and morally straight.
- Scout Law: A Scout is Trustworthy, Loyal, Helpful, Friendly, Courteous, Kind, Obedient, Cheerful, Thrifty, Brave, Clean and Reverent.
If you have any questions or would like to join a local scouting unit please feel free to contact us by calling the Northeast Georgia Council office at 706-693-2446. Please be sure to tell the receptionist which county you live in so that your call can be forwarded to the right extension at the Scout office.
