Rome, GA– Calling all Cubs, Webelos, Boy Scouts, Venturers, Explorers, and their siblings ages three and up! Come out to Camp Sidney Dew April 28 - 30 for the biggest and best Scouting event in Northwest Georgia. The Dew Dog Challenge is the one event to bring together the entire Scouting family. That’s right; everyone, from Tiger Cubs to Venturers/Explorers, is invited to participate. Our theme for this year’s Challenge is “Dogs of the Wild”.

Similar to a large Camporee, the Challenge consists of a series of “missions” to test the skills of Cub Scouts, Webelos, Boy Scouts and Venturers/Explorers alike. The spirit of the Dew Dog Challenge is one of friendly competition. The Challenge is a fun way for our Scouts to show off their Scouting skills and compete for the coveted “Top Dog Patrol” trophy. There are different competitive events for each level. For Cub Scout Packs that bring along siblings, those ages six and above can participate in the Cub Scout events. We also have a special program just for Cub Scout siblings ages three to six. In addition to the fun, challenge activities, there will be Community Showcases, Food Vendors, a special Campfire program, and of course, barking, yes, barking- is encouraged!

Registration is open now at NWGABSA.ORG, and will continue through April 7. The cost to participate is $32 per person, which includes an event patch and T-shirt.

Take advantage now through March 24 of the Early Bird registration fee of $22 – a savings of $10 per person!
