Congratulations to the 2019 Award Recipients which were announced at our volunteer banquet.
The Apalachee Advance-A-Rama is an annual one day Merit Badge clinic designed to help and encourage Scout advancement by offering over 30 merit badges. A New Scout Jump Start class is also being offered to help new scouts learn some of the skills needed for the first few ranks. It will be up to the troop to test them and sign-off on any requirements.
Held at Central Gwinnett High School in Lawrenceville, GA, this event is typically attended by over 500 Scouts. The Apalachee Advance-A-Rama provides an emphasis on the path to Eagle, and offers 6 Eagle required Merit Badges. Additionally, a class on Eagle advancement will be provided for parents and adult Scout leaders.
Exciting news! Loop-A-Rama has been moved
We typically run that event in the fall but fall is rather busy for Cub Packs and we have created some new events over the past couple of years that compete with LAR.

Jamboree On The Trail
2020 Jamboree On The Trail
Calling all Packs, Troops, Crews & Posts
Saturday, May 9
On the second Saturday each May since 1998, all those in the World Scout Movement have been invited to hike together. In their own way, all Scouts – whatever their age, wherever they may be, in whatever way they can – will be hiking the same direction; towards a better future through Scouting.
There is no cost to participate in this international event. Commemorative 2020 JOTT patches will be $4 each. Proceeds of the patch sale support the work of the Northeast Georgia Council International Committee.
If you have any questions, please contact Northeast Georgia Council International Representative Phil Krajec, email@example.com.
