Tukabatchee Area Council [TAC]
The Tukabatchee Area Council was formed in 1919 as the Montgomery Council and later changed its name to the Montgomery Area Council. The name changed again in 1947 to the Tukabatchee Area Council.
The current council shoulder patch, adopted in 1989, depicts a fleur-de-lis inside a heart in the center of the state of Alabama. The fleur-de-lis represents the BSA while the heart is representative of Montgomery's claim as the "Heart of Dixie." The white stars in a blue arc with grey and red color scheme are reminiscent of the official flag of the City of Montgomery. The count of 14 stars represent the counties in the council's central Alabama service area.
This BSA Council oversees implementation of scouting facilities, programs and leadership training in each local area. They depend on your generous donations.
Summer Camp - 2000 New Facility [TAC]
Newly opened in Summer 2000 with modern facilities, hot water, equestrian center, shootingsports, and a complete Cope Course featuring 18 stations. 50-acre Crane Lake with two beaches (one for swimming and one for boating) is popular for both sailing and kayaking. Taylor Dawson Environmental Trail is par of a large 5-mile hiking trail surrounding the camp that includes several interpretive areas. This camp is part of the TAC Warner Scout Reservation.
Auguaga County Cub Camp [TAC]
Camp Dexter C. Hobbs is on the site of the old Scout Camp Tukabatchee (1950-1999). From 1999 to 2005 the old camp was transformed into our Cub Scout and family camp. A large pavillion and several sleeping cabins are some of the features of camp. Camp Hobbs is home to the annual Webelos resident camp each summer.
Both camps are available for weekend and off season use by packs, troops and other groups. Check out the weekend use page or contact

Order of the Arrow
The Order of the Arrow (OA) is the national honor society of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA). This Scouting Fraternity uses American Indian-styled traditions and ceremonies to bestow recognition on scouts selected by their peers as best exemplifying the ideals of Scouting. The society was created in 1915 as a means of reinforcing the Scout Law and to provide support to local scouting projects.
Each Council District has a chapter invested in the lodge. Alibamu #179, is home to the 2007 National Vice Chief of the Order of the Arrow, Larry Newton.
The council derived its name from the Creek Indians who inhabited much of Alabama and specifically south central Alabama prior to European settlement. Tukabatchee was a capital of the Creeks located at the convergence of the Coosa and Tallapoosa Rivers just east of what is now Montgomery. The tribe of Creeks occupying the area were known as the Alibamus. Alibamu is the name of the council's Order of the Arrow lodge. More council history can be found here.
