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.

Update: Come Help this SUNDAY - Austin's Eagle Project

Posted on Mar 18 2016 - 8:05am

Austin's Eagle project has been rescheduled for Sunday, March 20, due to weather. Same time, same place. The weather is expected to be much more pleasant on Sunday but we will have to work all day until the project is done so as to be ready for the Memorial moving company first thing Monday.

The new plan is as follows:

Meet at 9am,  SUNDAY, March 20th at the flagpole behind Jeffco Open School (7655 W 10th Ave, Lakewood, CO 80214) to assist in digging up the perimeter posts at the Memorial Site and loosening the Memorial itself. We will then proceed to Lakewood High School (9700 W 8th Ave, Lakewood, CO 80215) to prepare the New Site for the Memorial.

We will provide snacks, gatorade and pizza.

Please come prepared with digging tools, gloves, sunscreen, water bottles and lots of energy!. See you there!

Sign Up for Summer Camp Soon!

Posted on Mar 17 2016 - 10:19pm

Come one, come all to the 57th year of summer camp for the troop. We are returning to camp Dietler where many boys recall fabulous times. Here, troops will participate in a back-to-basics style of camping that gives Camp Dietler its bold and exciting character. Scouts will pitch their own tents, cook food as a patrol and learn how to work as a team to make their week successful. Camp Dietler will take your Scouts in, show them the true meaning of "hardcore" camping, and spit them out ready to take on any challenge nature can throw their way.

In keeping with a long-running tradition, Boy Scout Troop 130 will once again help at the 2016 Easter Sunrise Service at Red Rocks. We will be passing out program flyers, assisting  with the collection of the offering, and possibly helping release doves. Adults are needed mostly for transport, scouts get to do the work. We are looking for Scouts and hearty adults to come spend the night at the First United  Methodist Church (FUMC) in Golden (1500 Ford Street), then get up super early and drive  to Red Rocks.

This is a great tradition, fun service project, and an awesome opportunity for  all Scouts to be involved in the community. Cost is $15 to help cover cost of food, snacks and neckerchief. Register online ASAP!
