Capture the Flag at Camp Sidney DewJoin us for our annual Capture the Flag trip December 14th - 15th at Camp Sidney Dew in northwest Georgia. This event is a perennial favorite! Dress warmly & come ready to play! For details, please see the Event Description Form.
About Camp Sidney Dew: Located in the northwest corner of Georgia and approximately 20 miles north of Rome, Camp Sidney Dew offers the natural beauty of the Appalachian foothills. Founded in the late 1930's, the camp is a unique blend of old and new, with several of the early structures still in use and many new structures in place or soon to be built. Located in the "pocket area" between John's Mountain and Horn Mountain, the camp's 650+ acres are bordered on the north by the Chattahoochee National Forest and on the south by John's Creek. The camp's rolling terrain offers an abundance of deer, wild turkey, and other wildlife, including a trout stream open annually to fishing from March 1st through October 31st. Several points of interest are within a couple hours' drive from camp. Visiting units can explore the Etowah Indian Mounds, Chickamauga Battlefield, New Echota Historic Site, museums and historic sites of Rome and Atlanta, and more. In short, Camp Sidney Dew is the crown jewel of a council which, though small, is committed to offering the best possible program for Scouts and Scouters of all ages.
Registration for this event will be conducted entirely online. ALL SCOUTS MUST REGISTER ONLINE by Tuesday, December 3rd, 7:30 P.M. Please use the link provided below to sign up for this trip:

Remember, to get started on a merit badge, you must acquire a "blue card" with the Scoutmaster's signature.Note: It is a good idea to make periodic photocopies of both sides of the partially completed blue card. These cards are the only record the Scout or the Troop has of the work the Scout has done toward the merit badge. Any lost requirement records will have to be done again!
