|Twilight Camp Registration is Open
Cub Scouts and Cub leaders, the registration for this year's District Twilight Camp is now open and you do not want to miss
out. Twilight Camp is a week long "day" camp held in the evening hours from 4:30 - 9:00 pm. The theme this year is
"Passport to Adventure". Scouts will take part in activities including games, building, crafts, shooting sports and various
advancement activities. Twilight Camp gives Scouts a great head start on their rank but more than that, it is a lot of fun.
The cost of Twilight Camp is $90 per Scout but, if you register before May 31 you can receive a discount of $15.
The camp dates are June 11 to June 15 and will be held at the First United Methodist Church in Villa Rica. The registration
page can be found by following this link. Also, volunteers are needed so adults, get yourselves registered and join in the fun.
Merit Badge Counselor Process Change
Indian Springs Leaders and families, the Atlanta Area Council has streamlined the merit badge application process for
currently registered BSA Adults. If you are already a BSA registered adult, you are no longer required to file an additional
BSA adult application to be a merit badge counselor. The only form you need to complete is the Merit Badge Information
Sheet. The information sheet can be downloaded by following this link. Completed registrations can be forwarded to Cathy
Stembridge, on the District Advancement Committee.
This is a great opportunity to help our Scouts in their advancement while teaching something that you already enjoy and are
Eagle Advancement Process
The Indian Springs District Advancement committee has changed in the past few months. Our new Advancement Chair is
Dave Hoffman. All prospective Eagle candidates should make note of Mr. Hoffman's contact information and communicate
with him regarding Eagle projects and the process. It has been requested that prospective, not yet approved projects, be
forwarded to Mr. Hoffman for review.
