The first OA Induction of 2020 has just completed and i’m really happy to say that we have 13 new members from 7 different troops who completed their Induction! Congratulations everyone, I know it’s a lot of work and not a ton of fun at first, but things only get better from here! Make sure you sign up for Chapter Emails using the form on the side of this website so you can stay up to date as Fall Fellowship, an OA Lodge event dedicated to nothing but fun and fellowship is just around the corner in a couple weeks and I hope everyone can come out to it!
I’d also like to give out special shout out to Troop 008, they really knocked it out of the park this weekend! Not only did two of their scouts offer to be Elangomats this weekend, which anybody familiar with the OA knows is a HUGE commitment and we’re really appreciative of it, but two of their other members, including the unit leader help out with the one of the candidate service project splitting and stacking wood for nearly the entire day! Way to go you guys. You guys rock!!
Lastly, we like to congratulate a few more of our Chapter Members as we had 3 scouts complete the Brotherhood Trail this weekend. Thank you for continuing your journey in the Order of the Arrow.

Dates: October 16-18, 2020
Location: Woodruff Scout Reservation
Who: Scouts BSA, Webelos & AOL Scouts – $10.00 each
Flyer Download: 2020 Camporall Flyer
Registration: Click Here!
**Please register as a UNIT, not as individuals.**
This event is designed for Scout Units to invite Arrow of Light Scouts & Webelos to a weekend of Scouts BSA camping at Woodruff Scout Camp, hopefully! As with everything else this year, the need to be flexible is key. The program this year is designed to be able to be provided “rain or shine”. Each youth Scouts BSA, Webelos/AOL Scout will receive an activity kit with the registration fee. These kits and activities are planned so that each unit with their Cub Scout guests can move from area to area as a group or conduct all activities in their campsites.
A sampling of the adventures that await the scouts with the activity kits are:
- Knot tying
- Fire building
- First Aid
- Signs, Signals, & Codes (Morse & Semaphore)
The cost is $10 per Scout (Scouts BSA, Webelos, Arrow of Light) , and TONS of fun! This is the cost of the kit and if we have to cancel the in person event there will be no refund. Each unit will still receive their kits with instructions on how to run each activity. There will also be no event patch this year. If you would like a t-shirt / hoodie you can order them directly from SquadLocker: https://teamlocker.squadlocker.com/#/lockers/scouting-continues?_k=rib0km
*Prices are set by Squadlocker, Foothills District has not marked them up in any way and does not receive any portion of the purchase price. Delivery takes up to two weeks.
Troops need to invite Webelos & Arrow of Light scouts to be their guests for the weekend. If you need help finding a pack or troop please contact Rudi Shumpert.
Allatoona Aquatics Base will open for day programs June 26th, if we can get the property ready. To that end the Aquatics Base team is having a workday this Saturday, June 13. Adult and/or Scouts BSA-age volunteers are needed to clean out the swim cove and other shoreline areas of driftwood, clean winter leaves and deadfall from pavilions and other key areas throughout the camp.
Volunteers will be divided into small isolated groups and take appropriate precautions. Work groups can start as early as 8:00 AM or as volunteers arrive throughout the morning. Volunteers should bring:
- Water bottle
- Sack lunch
- Work Gloves
- Mask (recommended)
For more information please contact Dalton Smith (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Mike Gulledge email@example.com.
IMPORTANT: Please sign up if you plan on attending!
