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!
