    The last date for registration has passed.

    In 2017, we have partnered with 9News to “Scout for Food” to donate to the 9Cares Colorado Shares drive which provides food to over 100 food banks throughout the Metro area. Door hangers will be provided for Scouts to deliver to their neighborhoods beginning Saturday, November 11th with a request to fill a bag with food and pick up on the morning of Saturday, November 18th. Units may pick up Scouting for Food door hangers at the October roundtable meetings, University of Scouting, November roundtable meetings or at the Hamilton Scout Headquarters.

    Units will need to total the amount of food items collected for their Scouting for Food report and then deliver to one of the 9Cares Colorado Shares collection sites on Saturday, November 18, 2017 from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.

    All Scouting units are encouraged to participate in this Council-wide community service initiative. Scouting for Food participation will inspire our young people and teach them the importance of community service. Service is a key ingredient in Citizenship! It will also reinforce Scouting's positive contribution to the general community.

    Each unit should select a Scouting for Food Coordinator and begin planning.

    Report Service Hours for Journey to Excellence to National BSA

    Here are some helpful hints for this process:
    1. Your Unit ID is the same number used by your unit when recording Internet Advancement. If you do not know this number, please contact the Council Service Center at 303.455.5522.
    2. The Denver Area Council is Council number 061.
    3. Your local unit number must be four (4) digits. If your pack/troop number is only two (2) or three (3) digits, front fill with zeroes i.e. Pack 123 becomes Pack 0123.
