Scout Show 2016 - Scouting: A World of Possibilities
When: April 23, 2016 10:00 am until 4:00 pm
Where: National Western Stock Show Complex
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 - Scouting: A World of Possibilities

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 22, 2016, at noon and goes until 8:00 pm and again on Saturday, April 23, 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 2016 Scout Show Participation ribbon.
New this year, Program Preview will occur during the Scout Show. Signs will indicate the location. We would like to plan for you. Please register here for Program Preview. For more information please check out the flyer.
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. You will receive $1.00 commission per card sold for having a Scout Show booth, so we are paying you to have a booth!
The Camp Card will admit your entire family to the Scout Show.
