Northeast Georgia Boy Scouts
The Boy Scouts of America Northeast Georgia Council is holding day and twilight camps in Forsyth and Dawson counties available for all kids entering first through fifth grade in fall 2021.
The day camps are week-long adventures where kids can learn about bow and arrows and BB guns, putting together arts and crafts, going hiking, learning about music and more. The twilight camp is much like the day camps, but there is more of a focus on science, engineering, technology and math.
The camps also help Scouts advance within their rank. Those who are not in Cub Scouts must enroll for the program when they register for either of the camps.
