2014 Twilight Camp



Hear Ye, Hear Ye Cub Scouts of the Appalachian Trail District!

Your presence is requested at the most jovial of all Twilight Camps in the Council. We are in need of knights/madiens who are in the grades of 1st thru 5th as of Fall 2014.

You will need to park your steed Monday, June 9 through Friday, June 13, 2014 in the stables of Hickory Flat Fellowship Church. It is located in the beautiful fields of green at 5301 Hickory Flat Hwy, Canton Ga.

A small pittance of $85 per knight/maiden (as siblings are allowed) will be required. If your trusted caregivers would grace us with their presence and elbow grease for the entire week they shall receive a reward of $10 at the end of camp (one reward per family).

Cub Scout Leader Training Guide


One of our unit leaders from Pack 8880, Rob Redmond has put together a great package for unit leaders to utilize. Basically, it lays out a unit leader’s training path listing important steps to getting trained, suggestions on how to become more successful, leader guidance and how to utilize the on-line system step-by-step, how to further your training that will enhance the program we put on for our youth, and what awards we can use to recognize our leaders for their efforts. Rob has also put together a handout that explains what adult recognition knots were removed in 2012 and what new knots will be used to recognize our leaders. I want to thank Rob for his efforts in gathering the information from the national site and compiling this for the district.
