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.

Shooting Sports and Pioneering Weekend - November 14-16

Posted on Oct 21 2014 - 9:46pm

Do you love the smell of gun powder in the morning? Do you pine for the callous tickle of sisal rope running through your hands? Does the rumbling crackle of a roaring campfire bring comfort in the night? Does your mouth long for the sweet dance a cobbler does on your tongue. Are you filled with pride as you see all you and your fellow scouts can accomplish as you push your limits and experiences as individuals and a troop?
