Make sure you get this great family outing on your calendar. The Scout Show is a tremendous opportunity for the public to see what Scouting is all about, with hands-on activities and great prizes! Fun things at the Scout Show include archery, games, camping demonstrations, cooking demonstrations, stage shows, obstacle courses, cubmobiles, pinewood derby car races, and activities for all ages.
For all those families already involved in Scouting, it’s a great chance for Scouts to participate and experience a larger perspective of this great organization, and to earn money to help pay your camp fees.
Scouting groups from around the Denver metro area plan fun activities for this event, and many local businesses host booths with food, drinks and items for sale. The Scout Show provides inexpensive entertainment for the whole family and is open to the public.

Hosting a Scout Show booth and participating in the 2013 Scout Show, allows your Scouts to show off some of the great things they have done recently, or develop a new and exciting activity for your Scouts to create. Ideas for a Scout Show booth can be found throughout the Cub Scout, Boy Scout, Exploring and Venturing programs, and should, but don't necessarily have to incorporate this year's theme into your booth. Let your Scouts get creative and have fun with this, but please review the Guide to Safe Scouting before finalizing your booth plans to ensure your unit's booth is Scouting appropriate. Have Fun!
