Boy Scouts of America (BSA)
The Boy Scouts of America is one of the nation’s largest and most prominent values based youth development organizations. The BSA provides a program for young people that builds character, trains them in the responsibilities of participating citizenship, and develops personal fitness. The Cub Scout program is part of the overall Scouting program offered by the BSA.
Council & District
Pack 20 is part of the Atlanta Area Council of the Boy Scouts of America. Council and District have both paid and volunteer representatives whose job it is to help Cub Scout Packs and Boy Scout Troops provide a quality program for the Atlanta and North Georgia area.
Each Pack has a legal entity that supports the Pack and helped created it through agreement with the BSA. Pack 20’s Chartered Organization is the Big Canoe Chapel.
The Pack is run by a committee made up of a Chair, Cub Master, Treasurer, Awards Coordinator and the Den Leaders. Scouting is a family activity and there is no end to the opportunities large and small to help make the Pack go and provide a fun quality program for our scouts.
Scouts in the Pack are organized into Dens by grade level. Each grade level will have at least one Den and they will range in size from 6-12+ Scouts. Each Den will have a Den Leader (and possible one or two assistant, or co-leaders) who are registered and trained annually for their position according to BSA guidelines. Den leaders stay with their Den from 1st grade up through 5th when the children age out and cross over to Boy Scouts.
