Welcome to the Indian Springs District of the Boy Scouts of America. The District is located in west Georgia, serving Scouts in Carroll, Douglas and

Scouting programs include Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Venturing and Varsity Scouts. There is something for all boys, beginning from the first grade up
to 20 years.
Fall Camporee - Get Ready to Escape
After surviving the plane crash and escaping from the Outback in last year's Fall Camporee, your Patrol took a few weeks of
rest before embarking on your next adventure. You have decided to “go back to where it all began… Brownsea Island… the
birthplace of Scouting. As your plane begins its initial descent, you hear a familiar sputtering… “OH NO!!! NOT AGAIN!!!”
you think…
The 2016 Indian Springs District Fall Camporee is coming soon and the time to prepare is now. Set for September 23 - 25
at the Buchanan VFW, Scouts will construct a way to "escape". Start planning now and get ready for fun. Registration will be
online soon but
you can check out the leaders handbook here.

Tiger Time! - New Tiger Leader and Parent Training
Welcome to all our new Cub Scout parents. Learn all the essentials to make your son's first year in Scouting super fun,
educational, and engaging. As a parent, you will be taught the basics of how a Tiger Den is run and what to expect
from your Den Leader. Learn how to plan, organize and make it a great year for your new Cub Scout.
Boy Scout and Venture Crews will be on hand to play games, make crafts, and start to show the new Cubs some of the
fun they will have in scouting.
Don't miss this opportunity to become educated about Scouting. The room will be full of experienced Scouters who
remember the feeling of the unknown when their son first joined Cub Scouts. Registration will be coming soon.
