Welcome !


 Welcome to the Troop 1876 website!

Summer Camp 2017 


Our Troop is chartered by the Susan M. Duncan YMCA of Arvada, Colorado. We have been around since 1999 and have been having fun ever since!

This is a Scout-led troop that uses the patrol method to teach scouts leadership, character, citizenship, and physical fitness.  We are mainly a backpacking troop, but don't be worried if you are inexperienced. Our scout leadership will guide you through the ropes to become an expert! If you don't like backpacking we also do many other fun activities like rocket launching, snow sports, rock climbing, and shooting sports!  

 Look around our site to get a better idea of what we are all about!


Josh Tjarks Eagle Project -- POSTPONED

Posted on May 20 2018 - 10:23am

Josh Tjarks' Eagle Project is POSTPONED.

The project scheduled for Sunday, May 20 is postponed. Please do not go to the Broomfield Commons Dog Park today. We'll have information about a rescheduled date soon, at which time we'll be installing board paneling at the park. We'll be installing 220 feet of fitted 2X10 boards, and using plenty of power tools. But not to worry, if you need service hours there is also manual work without power tools available, so if you need service hours please do come! I can use all the hands possible! Also if you plan on installing boards and are over 14, of you could bring a cordless power drill that would be great! All who plan on working this please bring gloves and safety goggles, water and sun screen.
