Welcome !

 

 Welcome to the Troop 1876 website!


 

 

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!

 

Bent's Old Fort Traditional Holiday Celebration

Posted on Nov 5 2019 - 10:38pm

This Dec. 7 and 8 trip includes seeing Bent's Old Fort (https://www.nps.gov/beol/index.htm) with all the re-enactors for their holiday celebration, access to the Koshare Indian Museum, a performance of the Koshare Indian Dancers, a candlelight tour of Bent's Fort (after dark, of course), staying overnight at the Kiva, and breakfast the next morning in the Rattlers' Den at Otero Junior College. It will be a pretty busy time with lots of cool things to see. We are opening this one up to families as it is a pretty fun event. YOU DON'T WANT TO MISS IT! Deadline for signups is Nov. 23. Price is going to be ~$35.00 per person (it might turn out to be a little less) and includes the Fort tickets, dancers tickets, museum tickets, overnight stay and meals. See you there! Any questions, see Ms. Schumm or Mr. Baltz.

Quinzee Trip, January 11&12, 2020

Posted on Nov 5 2019 - 10:14am

This a great high adventure trip! You'll get the chance to build, then sleep in, a Quinzee, which is a type of snow shelter. This is also the best chance for you to become a member of the Polar Bear Club (or earn a bronze star if you're earning it again), should the temperature dip below 0 overnight. We'll leave early Saturday morning for Snow Mountain Ranch YMCA, spend most of the day building quinzees before heading over to the Fraser Tubing Hill for some tubing at night. We might even have some time for ice skating! This is an awesome winter trip for all Scouts and Scouters -- don't miss it. We will be back around lunch time on Sunday.

This trip is to Camp Alexander which is near Lake George west of Colorado Springs.

We will be sleeping indoors in the Upper Elks Lodge which also has a full commercial kitchen. This will give everyone a chance to show off their culinary skills.
