Indian Springs District
Boy Scouts of America
Coming Events
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 Haralson counties. Indian Springs serves all ages of Scouts from all backgrounds.
Scouting programs include Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Venturing and Varsity Scouts. There is something for all youth, beginning
from the first grade up to 20 years.
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 great doing.

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.
