August 1, 2022 will forever be an historic day for Scouting in South Carolina. On this day, the Indian Waters Council #553 (formerly the Central South Carolina Council #553), headquartered in Columbia, SC and the Pee Dee Area Council #552, headquartered in Florence, SC, officially and formally merged. This action combines the resources of the two councils in an effort to better serve the youth of South Carolina from the midlands to the coast.
