District Announcements and Events
National Youth Training
Scouts, please be aware of this amazing opportunity to advance your leadership skill in your unit as well as outside. NYLT is a must for Senior Patrol Leaders, Assistant Senior
Patrol Leaders, Patrol Leaders or any Scouts looking to learn about leadership and the running of a Scout troop by the patrol method. Held at Bert Adams Scout Reservation
in early summer and a course between Christmas and New Year’s Day, this course is run by Scouts with adult guidance, just like a Scout troop would be run in their home
troops.

Twilight Camp Registration and Location Change
Cub Scouts and Cub leaders, the registration for this year's District Twilight Camp is now open and you do not want to miss
out. Twilight Camp is a week long "day" camp held in the evening hours from 4:30 - 9:00 pm. The theme this year is
"Passport to Adventure". Scouts will take part in activities including games, building, crafts, shooting sports and various
advancement activities. Twilight Camp gives Scouts a great head start on their rank but more than that, it is a lot of fun.
The cost of Twilight Camp is $90 per Scout.
The camp dates are June 11 to June 15 and will be held at the I
thica Elementary School, located at 75 Whitworth Road in
Villa Rica.
This is a change from the previous address so please note the change. The registration page can be found by

Are You Ready For Popcorn
As we enter the summer and the end of the Cub year we also welcome the start of the popcorn sales year. Get your unit
registered and ready to earn some big profits with the biggest fundraiser of the year. The calendar of events is set and units
can now sign up for sales. More information on dates as well as the unit registration page can
be found by following this link.

Merit Badge Counselor Process Change
Indian Springs Leaders and families, the Atlanta Area Council has streamlined the merit badge application process for
currently registered BSA Adults. If you are already a BSA registered adult, you are no longer required to file an additional
BSA adult application to be a merit badge counselor. The only form you need to complete is the Merit Badge Information
Sheet. The information sheet can be downloaded
by following this link. Completed registrations can be forwarded to Cathy
Stembridge, on the District Advancement Committee.
This is a great opportunity to help our Scouts in their advancement while teaching something that you already enjoy and are
great doing.

Eagle Advancement Process
The Indian Springs District Advancement committee has changed in the past few months. Our new Advancement Chair is
Dave Hoffman. All prospective Eagle candidates should make note of
Mr. Hoffman's contact information and communicate
with him regarding Eagle projects and the process. It has been requested that prospective, not yet approved projects, be
forwarded to Mr. Hoffman for review.
