SWC History

    Since 1968 Cobb County's Districts and the SWC Scoutmasters have built upon a grand history of winter camping to create traditions that are unique to SWC. This section shares some of those that make SWC the unique event that it is.
    Even as the old Cobb DistrictColossal Cobbwas broken apart in 1998, the three resulting Districts continued to use SWC as a Tri-District event to bring Cobb County Scouters together for training, fun and fellowship.
