Cub Scout Pack 20 was first chartered over ten years ago; since then it has grown into a strong and positive part of the Big Canoe and surrounding communities. Today, the Pack still honors the finest in Scouting traditions by continuing to provide a structured and varied Scouting program that has something fun and exciting for every boy who joins and participates in the Pack.
Pack 20 meets on Sunday afternoon, usually on the first and third Sunday of most months (exceptions are noted on our calendar). We welcome all students of elementary school age and their parents who wish to visit and share in the fun!.
We are sponsored by the Big Canoe Chapel and are members of the Appalachian Trail District. The Appalachian Trail District is part of the Atlanta Area Council which in turn is part of the Boy Scouts of America. The AT District has over 60 scout units, 2,200 scouts, and 600 registered adult volunteers.

What does it cost?
Cub Scouts is a non-profit group. Pack 20’s annual dues of $35 go towards the scout’s required BSA application. Fundraiser opportunities will help cover the cost of activity specific supplies such as Pinewood Derby Car and Space kits, desk top catapult, as well as the cost of all badges and other achievements the Cub earns over the course of the year.
A Cub Scout will need a uniform (at a minimum, a shirt and neckerchief) and a handbook for his den. These items can often be found “gently used” at local consignment shops or you can purchase them new from one of the metro Atlanta-area Scout Stores (click here for a map) or through the BSA’s on-line store.
Occasionally, there will be extra costs for camp-outs to cover food (usually about $10 per person). The costs of special events (like the overnight trips) will be discussed in Pack meetings.
