Pictured above are three of five of our new cabins.  These cabins and surrounding area known as "The Simons Retreat" were made possible by our donors, board members and volunteers; and to those people we say "THANK YOU!"  
For information on how you and your group can rent these cabins, contact our camping department at 770-227-4556 or by email at lawhorn@scouting.org.
