Serving over 32,000 youth and adults in Northeast Georgia

The Northeast Georgia Council was chartered by the Boy Scouts of America in 1935 to provide Scouting programs in twenty-six counties.  After years of phenomenal growth, our council now serves more than 25,000 youth in Cub Scouting, Boy Scouting, Varsity Scouting, Venturing, Exploring, and in-school Learning for Life. Three camping facilities (Camp Rainey Mountain, Scoutland, and Camp Rotary) and two service centers (Jefferson and Lawrenceville) support the youth members and volunteer leaders.
