About Woodruff Scout Camp
You'll never forget your summer at Woodruff. With programs designed for maximum fun and achievement, Woodruff offers once-in-a-lifetime adventures for Scouts looking for a pure Scouting experience.
Your typical Woodruff morning is spent knocking out Merit Badge requirements at our class-leading waterfront, nature center, STEM center, Outdoor & Life Skills, Mack Mountain Studios or shooting sports ranges. In the afternoon, Scouts and their Troops have the opportunity to take on adventure challenges like climbing & rappelling, whitewater rafting, mountain biking, Ga-Ga ball, Kendell Crossing (interpretive programs), and a variety of aquatic activities including BeaverShark Park. Campfires, movie nights, Vespers, Spoof Badge, and STEM After Dark fill the twilight hours before taps closes out another great day of camp.
Located in the North Georgia Mountains, Woodruff's natural environment gives you nearly unlimited opportunities for adventure. And our renowned first-year camper program and quality merit-badge instruction means that every Scout will have the time of his life.

About Robert W. Woodruff
Robert W. Woodruff was born in 1889 in Georgia. He was the son of a Ernest Woodruff, one of a group of businessmen who bought The Coca-Cola Comany in 1919. After various jobs — shoveling sand, selling fire extinguishers, supplying trucks for troops during World War I — Robert’s dad offered him the position of president of Coca-Cola.
As company president in 1926, Robert Woodruff turned Coke into a global brand by establishing a foreign department. He served as president until 1954.
The fact that Woodruff’s name graces a number of school buildings and public landmarks is a testament to his philanthropy. There’s the Woodruff Arts Center and Woodruff Park in Atlanta, for example, named in recognition of his gifts.
The Robert W. Woodruff Scout Reservation, now called Woodruff Scout Camp, was built after donations from the Woodruff Foundation and The Coca-Cola Company. Each summer, Scouts from around the Southeast gather at Woodruff Scout Camp for life-changing experiences they’ll find nowhere else.
