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.
Atlanta Area Council - Appalachian Trail District - Big Canoe, Georgia

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.

Now is the perfect time for 5th & 6th graders to join. Troop 20 sponsors their scouts to attend summer camp at Camp Woodruff in the beautiful, cool mountains of North Georgia. A week filled with adventure including swimming, first-aid skills, wilderness survival, archery, rifle shooting, and whitewater rafting.
