The Atlanta Area Council’s 100th Anniversary

Since 1916, the Atlanta Area Council has been here as the foundation behind every Scouting experience in metro-Atlanta.  For 100 years, the Atlanta Area Council has been developing leaders; making an impact one Scout at a time.

Our alumni includes Martin Luther King, Jr., a Scout at Ebenezer Baptist Church. Our supporters and advocates include baseball legend Hank Aaron, former President Jimmy Carter and former UN Ambassador Andrew Young as well as countless leaders in civic organizations, business, education and communities of faith.

To celebrate the Atlanta Area Council’s 100th anniversary we’re gathering stories of how Scouting has impacted the people of our city. We’re also moving forward with exciting new programs to ensure that Scouting continues to be positive influence on Atlanta for the next 100 years. We hope that you will join in our anniversary celebration by participating in one of our marquee events.

  • Follow the twelfth point of the Scout Law and conduct a Scout Sunday or Sabbath at your place of worship in February.
  • Bring your Boy Scouts and Venturers to our biggest camping event of the year; Campout 100 at Bert Adams Scout Camp in March.
  • Practice courtesy to our community by participating in our month of service by conducting a service project of your choice in April.
  • Fulfill the promise of Scouting by attending summer camp at Bert Adams or Woodruff Scout Camps with your Pack, Troop or Crew.

As we look to a new century of Scouting achievements for metro-Atlanta, the Atlanta Area Council re-commits ourselves to Scouting’s time-honored ideals of leadership, achievement, character, service, and fun.  Thank you for being a part of our next century of Scouting in metro-Atlanta!
