This will be a huge event for the Appalachee and Sweetwater Districts; every pack and Troop must have atleast 1 representative present.

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.  

So we're on the move! We've moved Cub Scout LAR to February.  We will run the event on February 22, 2020 at Central Gwinnett High School at the Scouts BSA Advance-A-Rama!

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, mrkrajec529@gmail.com.
