Prepared for Life

Are you ready for adventure?

“Scouts prove themselves in an environment that challenges their courage and tests their nerve. After they’ve been given the proper guidance from those with experience and know-how, they take their own lead, going places they’ve never gone, seeing things they’ve never seen, and diving into the rugged world of outdoor adventure, relying on teamwork and character to accomplish what everyone else thinks is impossible.”

Scouts BSA is available to boys and girls who are 11 through 17 years old, or who have earned the Arrow of Light Award, or have completed the fifth grade.

What Will I Do In Scouts BSA?

Scouts BSA is designed to take place in the outdoors. It’s outside that Scouts share responsibilities and learn to live with one another. It’s outside that skills and activities practiced at troop meetings come alive with purpose. Outside is the laboratory in which Scouts gain self-esteem, leadership skills, and an appreciation for the world around them.

Scouts travel to amazing places, from the mountains of Alaska to the Florida Keys. Ride jet-skis, ATVs, horses, and climb 60-foot walls all at summer camp. Scouts BSA can get you there. Click here to see more about some of our past adventures!

Scouts plan their own advancement and progress at their own pace. Choose from 120 interests ranging from game development to wilderness survival. Experts in these fields are ready to provide fun, real-world experiences. A Scout is rewarded for each achievement which helps him gain self-confidence. Setting their own goals helps Scouts grow in self-reliance.

Troop Highlights

Troop 640 delivers the Scouting program to approximately 30 scouts in patrols led by scouts who are mentored by active Scouts BSA-trained adult leaders. Troop meetings are held weekly, with monthly camping outings, annual summer camp, and high adventure opportunities. Troop 640 has an active presence in Bighorn Youth Leadership Training, Wood Badge training, Alpine District activities, and Greater Colorado Council activities such as Jamboree. Troop 640 also actively supports the Greater Colorado Council’s Order of the Arrow (Tahosa Lodge).

How Does Scouts BSA Include Parents And Guardians?

Scouts BSA is a volunteer-led program. Each Scout troop is sponsored by a local community organization. Parents are welcome and encouraged to get involved as a troop leader or volunteer. Parents and the community organization select troop leaders. Scout leaders have the opportunity to work with young men and their families, improving the community through fun-filled activities that teach values of the Scout Oath and Law. By serving as a leader you can help make a positive difference in the kind of adults Scouts grow into.

Many tools, resources, and training is available to assist volunteers in becoming effective leaders and enjoy their experience.
