Atlanta Area Council Spooky-Ree October Camping

The Atlanta Area Council is coordinating a Halloween-themed camping event for three weekends in October.  While this is not a Pack 471 coordinated event, this is a great time to enjoy a family outing at the Bert Adams Campgrounds.

The link to information on the Atlanta Area Council is below, but registration is taking place now.  You can bring your own tent and food, or rent a fixed tent platform (the covered tents with 4 cots inside) and purchase meals for one price for all weekend in the chow hall.

You can find this and information about other Council wide scouting events at


WELCOME BACK TO SCHOOL! PACK 471 RALLY NIGHT – August 27th, 6:45 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Hello Pack 471!

We are glad to be back at school and officially starting our new year in cub scouting. We hope that everyone has had a great summer, and we are looking forward to having more fun this year.

We will hold our first pack meeting on Tuesday, August 27th, from 6:45  to 8:00 p.m.  This is a Class A meeting, so please come in your blue or tan (Webelos) uniform.  This is also our Rally Night, so we will have a great night of songs and games, while we sign up new scouts for this year.

Remember to tell all of your friends, and if you bring a friend to rally night who signs up, you get a Recruiter patch that night.  We will ask that all scouts wear their class B red shirts to school that day as a reminder, and we will send out another reminder as we approach that date.

We hope to have a HUGE turnout for that night, and if anyone knows of anyone who wants to join now or who wants further information, you can have them send an email to:

We hope to see you there, and remember that this year, our big trip will be Overnight at the Yorktown!
