See the CAMPSITE ASSIGNMENTS page for available campsites.

    Since 1968, the Districts of Covered Bridge, Foothills, and Mountain Lake in the Atlanta Area Council have been holding an adult training event to promote year round camping. What began as a simple ad hoc training course has evolved into an Adult Camporee. The event promotes the patrol method, scouting skills, and learning while having fun. It is open to all registered Scouters over 18 from all parts of the globe: leaders from Packs, Troops, Crews, Ships, Committee members at large, Explorer Posts, etc. are welcome.

    If you want to attend, read through the documentation when it becomes available. The "Patrol method" is used consisting of no less than six members and no more than ten members. Groups with more than ten should split into two Patrols. If you are falling short on members, contact the Senior Patrol Leader (see below) and he will work with you to find one you can join.

    Registration is on-line (link upper left). We use the Council's Doubleknot payment system.

    From 12:01 am, September 21 until midnight, November 30, it's $20 per person.
    From 12:01 am, December 1 until midnight, December 31 it's $25 per person.

    Check-in begins at 3:00 PM, Friday January 10, 2014 in the Nunn Building at Woodruff Scout Reservation (see map on the download page).

    Patrols MUST provide a patrol Roster and a Medical Form (Parts A and B filled out by the attendee, see the download page) at time of check in.

    Direct questions to either ...
