Supporting Scouting

For 100 years, the Boy Scouts of America has created a strong foundation of leadership, service, and community for millions of America's youth. Through A Year of Celebration, we celebrate this legacy and commit ourselves to inspire and prepare future generations.

In 1910 the Boy Scouts of America was founded and this year represents the 100th anniversary and is much more than a date on the calendar. It represents an important milestone in which to reintroduce Scouting to America and to celebrate our rich heritage to reinforce the important role Scouting will play in shaping our country's future.

Scouting is as vital and relevant today as it was when our journey began. Help us celebrate!

Help us keep the Scouting program, our camps, office, outreach programs, training, materials and much more available to our youth for another 100 years!

Help make an investment in Scouting through a monetary donation. Your pledge will help. Thank you for considering Scouting.

Community Investment in Character Campaign Donate Now!

Character, values and leadership don’t just happen. The Scouting program is a Blueprint for Success. The blueprint offers a youth discovery and adventure that include teachable moments in which a child can develop skills and inner strengths. From Cub Scouts through Eagle Scout, the blueprint helps develop a better citizen with a stronger character than their non-Scout peers. A child will develop into a leader with skills in cooperation, respect for himself and others, and a firm foundation of ethical behavior. Scouting allows the youth to build on each experiential lesson to develop life skills and timeless values. These skills and values will carry a Scout into the future and into the responsibility of adulthood.

Thank you to all donors, volunteers, parents, community partners and leaders for making our Blueprint for Success possible. We are looking forward to another year of great achievement in the Denver Area Council, and are committed to reaching even more youth through the Scouting program.

Thank you for your support.
