Welcome Letter

Dear Scout Leader,

Thank you for taking the time to take a look at Camp FGL.  We are proud of our camp and programs.  As one of the newest camps in the Southern Region we have a lot to offer.  Our facilities are first class and with the ability for your Troop to use Fort Bradshaw, our air-conditioned bunk house we can make your summer camp experience focused on an enjoyable experience for you and your Scouts instead of trying to survive in the heat of the summer.  Even if your Troop decides to go the more traditional route our Campsites are in great condition and each site has a covered pavilion with electricity and private showers & restrooms with hot and cold water.

Although we have modern amenities including free Wi-Fi in the Scoutmaster’s Business Center we have not lost focus on the most important part of the summer camp experience, your Scouts.  We pride ourselves on a high staff to camper ratio.  Could we run summer camp with less staff, yes we could, but we don’t.  More staff means more opportunity for individual skill instruction and time to go beyond the requirements.  The purpose of summer camp is to give your Scouts a chance to develop and lean new skills, build your Troop youth leadership, and keep boys interested in Scouting with fun and exciting programs.

We encourage you to come to not only Camp FGL but to the Chattahoochee Valley Area.  Come a day or two early and take advantage of the local attractions.  The world famous Callaway Gardens, The National Infantry Museum, The Coke Space Science Center, Wild Animal Safari, Butts Mill Farms, Navel War Museum, Auburn University, Pine Mountain Trail, Historic Andersonville and The Explorations in Antiquity Center are all within a short distance to camp.  We are happy to help you find just the right side trip to make your experience with us even more memorable.

We look forward to seeing you!
