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.

Thomas the Tank Engine - Parking Fundraiser Opportunity

Posted on Jul 28 2016 - 3:11pm

The Colorado Railroad Museum (www.coloradorailroadmuseum.org) has offered us an opportunity to earn funds for Jamboree 2017. During September, the Museum hosts the special event "Day Out With Thomas" which features the fabled steam engine Thomas the Tank Engine. This event is so popular, especially with youngsters, that overflow parking, remote from the main Museum is required.
