Welcome to Boy Scout Troop 20
On my honor, I will do my best. To do my duty, to God and my country, and to obey the Scout Law; To help other people at all times; To keep myself physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight.
Who We Are
Troop 20 is located in the mountains of North Georgia. As our district name implies we are just a few miles from Springer Mountain, the southern terminus of the Appalachian Trail. The mountains are our backyard and playground!
We’re home to Boy Scouts from Big Canoe, Bent Tree, Jasper, Dawsonville, Marble Hill, Tate, and Ballground. Our troop is chartered by the Big Canoe Chapel, but it is not necessary to be a Chapel member to join and be a Troop 20 Scout.
We are unique in that unlike most troops, we don’t conduct our meetings at a church, school or office – we hold our meetings at our Scout Hut nestled in the woods near Big Canoe. Directions to the hut .
The Mission of the Boy Scouts of America 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 Law.
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.
