Boy Scout Troop 20, chartered by the Big Canoe Chapel in September of 1999, is located in the mountains of North Georgia, just miles from Springer Mountain, the southern terminus of the Appalachian Trail. The mountains are our backyard and playground! We are home to Scouts from Big Canoe to Bent Tree, from Marble Hill to Ball Ground and the greater Jasper area. Unlike most troops who conduct their meetings in a church, school or office, Troop 20 meets in its own Scout Hut nestled in the woods near Big Canoe.
The mission of the Boys Scouts of America is to prepare young boys to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes. At its core, Scouting is fun with a purpose. Boys don’t join or continue in the Scouting program just for the values – they are here to have fun with their brothers in Scouting at meetings and in the great outdoors.
If you are new to Scouting and between the ages of 11 and 17 or maybe you are a Webelos new to the area and ready to cross over to Scouts, then Troop 20 is the perfect place for you! If you would like more information on the Scouting movement or about joining Troop 20, leave us a message on the contact form here and we will reach back out right away.
