The Soapstone Ridge District is part of the foremost youth-serving organization in our community that develops character, citizenship and fitness – the Boy Scouts of America. Operating within the Atlanta Area Council, Boy Scouts of America, Soapstone provides educational programs that build character, teach participatory citizenship and develop personal fitness.
Cub Scouts is for boys and girls, kindergarten through fifth grade. Each Cub Scout is a member of a Den. Dens are a small group of 6-10 kids around the same age from your area. Cub Scouts connect on a regular basis – meeting safely and/or doing their Cub Scout adventures from home on the family’s schedule. Cub Scout activities include fun trips in your area, games, service projects and learning new skills. Dens of all grades make up each Cub Scout Pack.
Dens are all boys or all girls. They come together for pack meetings.
Scouts BSA is the traditional Scouting experience for youth in the fifth grade through high school. Service, community engagement and leadership development become increasingly important parts of the program as youth lead their own activities and work their way toward earning Scouting’s highest rank, Eagle Scout.
There are troops for boys and troops for girls.
The BSA’s mission is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Scout Law.
