Northwest Georgia Council

http://www.nwgabsa.org/
The Northwest Georgia Council comprises an area of Bartow, Polk, Floyd, Chattooga , Whitfield, and Gordon Counties. Murray and Catoosa Counties were transferred to Cherokee Council, Chattanooga, TN in the early 1980’s. Murray County was transferred back in 1995.

Located in the northwest corner of Georgia and approximately 20 miles north of Rome, Camp Sidney Dew http://www.nwgabsa.org/index-4.html offers the natural beauty of the Appalachian foothills. Founded in the late 1930’s, the camp is a unique blend of old and new, with several of the early structures still in use and many new structures in place or soon to be built. Located in the “pocket area” between John’s Mountain and Horn Mountain, the camp’s 650+ acres are bordered on the north by the Chattahoochee National Forest and on the south by John’s Creek. The camp’s rolling terrain offers an abundance of deer, wild turkey, and other wildlife, including a trout stream open annually to fishing from March 1st through October 31st.

Several points of interest are within a couple hours’ drive from camp. Visiting units can explore the Etowah Indian Mounds, Chickamauga Battlefield, New Echota Historic Site, museums and historic sites of Rome and Atlanta, and more. In short, Camp Sidney Dew is the crown jewel of a council which, though small, is committed to offering the best possible program for Scouts and Scouters of all ages.

Camp Westin, http://www.nwgabsa.org/camp-info-westin.htm comprised of approximately 55 acres on Lake Allatoona in Bartow County, is our council’s short-term primitive camping facility. It has running water, a program shelter and primitive latrines.

To reserve Camp Westin for a weekend event or campout, units will need to check out keys at one of our council locations ($25 deposit) and fill out a Camp Usage Request Form. The keys must be returned within three business days to have their deposit refunded. Non-NWGA units can reserve Camp Westin for our out-of-council rate of $2 per person per night.

Daniel Boone Council

http://www.danielboonecouncil.org In the summer of 1920 the Daniel Boone Council, Boy Scouts of America was organized by a group of members of the Asheville Rotary Club. The original charter was submitted in September 1920. The council was incorporated on April 4, 1932. It was incorporated in the State of North Carolina under the laws and regulations concerning non-profit organizations.

The council covers fourteen counties in Western North Carolina: Avery, Buncombe, Cherokee, Clay, Graham, Haywood, Henderson, Jackson, Macon, Madison, Mitchell, Swain, Transylvania and Yancey.

In 1939 the Lee Ellis Boy Scout Reservation was purchased and Camp Daniel Boone was established on the property. It is located in Haywood County approximately 14 miles south of Canton. It serves more than 4,000 scouts annually during summer camp and several thousand more on weekend outings.
