Welcome !

In Scouting, a boy is encouraged to educate himself instead of being instructed. ~ Robert Baden-Powell

Boy Scout Troop 130 is a committed group of Scouts and Scouters, boy-led and organized to maximize the scouting experience with a solid, well-rounded program of outdoor adventures, Scouting advancement, and community service. The unit was formed in January 1958 and has been going strong for over 50 years. We've produced over 100 Eagle Scouts, with many more travling the Scouting Trail.

Troop 130 is an active troop, with many fun activities happening every month. From camping in the Rockies to hanging U.S. flags on national holidays, from canoeing the Colorado River to helping in our neighborhood food bank, from hiking Philmont to participating in Easter Sunrise at Red Rocks - our troop stays active in the scouting program and in our community.

Year 'round, our troop is always on the go! Want to join in on the fun? Contact Us for more information! You can find a copy of our Activities Calendar here.

The troop has grown, scouts are advancing, and it's time for our TRAIL TO FIRST CLASS campout (formally or also known as Shakedown). This event is to help knock off requirements for Tenderfoot, 2nd Class, and 1st Class, and to give new/inexperienced scouts a taste of what it's like to camp with Troop 130! This is our once-a-year advancement focused event (not counting summer camp), and is a great opportunity to wrap up the previous Up-to-First Class Requirements that you have outstanding before the end of the 2016 calendar year.

Fulford Cave Trip - May 21-23, 2016

Posted on Mar 28 2016 - 2:10pm

In the Fall of 2014 many of you missed the opportunity to explore the Fulford Caves. Well it is back! We plan to leave FUMC at about 5:30 Friday night, drive to Eagle and set up camp, and spend Saturday exploring the cave, and return Sunday morning at FUMC at approximately noon. Due to new cave rules, this trip is limited to 16 people total. Fulford Cave is a popular destination for many cavers and spelunkers alike. It is not a very difficult cave, but does create challenges and common sense is advised when exploring the cave.
