Special Needs Scouting Outreach

This video explores the many ways Denver Area Council reaches out to youths who have special needs.

 

Troop 5280 helps Scouts with Special Needs

Troop 5280 is the first transitional Boy Scout troop in the Denver metro area. It was formed in 2009 to provide special needs scouts between 10½ and 18-years-old with the basic foundation and knowledge of the traditional Boy Scout program.

 

Father and Son: Tim and Jack Ryan

Exposing Jack to Scouting was never part of a grand plan. Tim Ryan had very warm feelings for his time in the Scouts as a youth, but the years from the time he learned Jack was autistic (1994) until he started in Cub Scouts (2000) were a whirlwind of therapies and other efforts to address the autism that had become the central feature of their family's lives.
