Scout Show 2015 - Ticket to Adventure!
When: April 25, 2015 10:00am until 4:00pm
Where: National Western Stock Show Complex
The purpose of the annual Denver Area Council Scout Show is to showcase the Scouting program in a way that is accessible to both internal and external customers. It is an opportunity for program enhancement and recruiting for our existing units and a means to introduce scouting to potential new chartered partners. By having outside vendors participate in the Mid-Way, we give unit leadership access to resources not otherwise readily available.
The Scout Show is a fun, hands-on opportunity for your Scouts to see the “bigger picture” of Scouting.
Ticket to Adventure! includes all the exciting new things coming to the Denver Area Council; 2015 Council Camporee, 2017 National Jamboree, New Cub Scout Program, 50th Anniversary of Peaceful Valley Scout Ranch and the new Colorado Adventure Point opening at the Council Headquarters January 1, 2015.
The participation guide includes all the information needed for you to participate with a booth at the Scout Show.
You can go online and register or fill out a registration form and return it to your District Executive.
Booth Information and Set-up
Where should I request my booth be set up? There are three areas to have a booth. You may request an area when you register.
- The Hall of Education is the mail building with cement floors and pipe and drape. Most booths are in this area.
- Outside is where the cooking displays are and anything super messy.
- The Arena is downstairs, with a dirt floor; it is for monkey bridges, COPE, pioneering projects etc.
Does it cost me anything to have a booth? There is no fee to have a booth, we just want you there. However, your unit is responsible for your own supplies, set up and clean up. It is highly recommended that you download and read the Scout Show Participation Guide.
Will I have a pre-assigned booth location? Yes, when you come to setup you will be given a booth number and location.
Set up begins Friday April 24 at noon and goes until 8:00pm. In addition, on Saturday April 25 from 7:00am until 9:30am. You may bring a vehicle into the building on booth days. Drop your supplies at your assigned booth, remove your vehicle, and come back in to set up. Last car in on Saturday will be 8:30am and must be out by 9:00am.
Ribbons will be handed out to all units with a booth and special ribbons will be awarded to outstanding booths.
How does the Camp Card relate to Scout Show? The Camp Card is now a stand-alone fundraiser that we encourage you to participate in. You will register for the sale separately from Scout Show after the first of the year. We will not be reconciling camp card accounts at Scout Show. You will receive $1.00 commission per card sold for having a Scout Show booth, so we are paying you to have a booth!
The Camp Card will admit your entire family to the Scout Show.
