Scout Show 2017 - SCOUT POWer

When: Saturday, April 29, 2017
Where: National Western Stock Show Complex, Hall of Education
              4655 Humbolt Street, Denver, CO  80216
Time: 10:00 am - 4:00 pm


The purpose of the annual Denver Area Council Scout Show is to showcase the Scouting program in a way that is accessible to both internal and external customers. It is an opportunity for program enhancement and recruiting for our existing units and a means to introduce Scouting to potential new chartered partners. By having outside vendors participate in the Mid-Way, we give unit leadership access to resources not otherwise readily available. 

The Scout Show is a fun, hands-on opportunity for your Scouts to see the “bigger picture” of Scouting.

Theme - SCOUT POWer

Booth Information and Set-up

Where should I request my booth to be set up? There are three areas to have a booth. You may request an area when you register.

  • The Hall of Education is the main building with cement floors and pipe and drape. Most booths are in this area.
  • Outside is where the cooking displays are and anything super messy.
  • The Arena is downstairs, with a dirt floor; it is for monkey bridges, COPE, pioneering projects etc.

Does it cost me anything to have a booth? There is no fee to have a booth, we just want you there. However, your unit is responsible for your own supplies, set up and clean up. It is highly recommended that you download and read the Scout Show Participation Guide.

Will I have a pre-assigned booth location? Yes, when you come to set up you will be given a booth number and location.

When is set up? Set up begins Friday, April 28, 2017, at noon and goes until 7:300 pm and again on Saturday, April 29, 2016, from 7:00 am until 9:30 am. You may bring a vehicle into the building on both days. Drop your supplies off at your assigned booth, remove your vehicle, and come back in to set up. Last car in on Saturday will be at 8:30 am and must be out by 9:00 am.


All Scouting units the have a booth will receive a 2017 Scout Show Participation ribbon.

Program Preview

Again this year, Program Preview will occur during the Scout Show. Signs will indicate the location. 

Camp Card

How does the Camp Card relate to Scout Show? The Camp Card is now a stand-alone fundraiser that we encourage you to participate in. You will register for the sale separately from Scout Show after the first of the year. We will not be reconciling camp card accounts at Scout Show. A Camp Card will be your admittance to the Scout Show and your unit will earn an additional $1.00 per Camp Card sold for registering and manning a 2017 Scout Show booth. 

The Camp Card will admit your entire family to the Scout Show. All Scouts (yes, Girl Scouts too) that are in uniform are admitted free. All other adults, family members (over age 7) and visitors must show a Camp Card or purchase one at the ticket window inside the main entrance.

Prepared. For Life.
