Camp Sidney Dew

Over 85 Years of Scouting Experience 

Located in the northwest corner of Georgia and approximately 20 miles north of Rome, Camp Sidney Dew offers the natural beauty of the Appalachian foothills. Founded in the late 1930’s, the camp is a unique blend of old and new, with several of the early structures still in use.

Located in the valley between John’s Mountain and Horn Mountain (The Pocket), the camp’s 650 acres are bordered on the west by the Chattahoochee National Forest and on the east by John’s Creek. The camp’s rolling terrain offers an abundance of deer, wild turkey, and other wildlife, including a trout stream open annually to fishing.

Several points of interest are within a couple hours drive from camp. Visiting units can explore the Etowah Indian Mounds, Chickamauga Battlefield, New Echota Historic Site, museums, and historic sites of Rome, Atlanta, and Chattanooga. In short, Camp Sidney Dew is the crown jewel of the council and is committed to offering the best possible program for Scouts and Scouters of all ages.
