    Memorials/Tributes/Recognition

This technological infrastructure will allow Colorado Adventure Point to deliver experiential education at the speed of the 21st century. This facility infrastructure has made possible the Cyber Scouting program that uses technology to bridge language and geographic barriers, allowing Scouts to interact with the world in a unique online and virtual environment. Dedicated to providing a safe, cyber bully free facility that is efficient, safe, technologically advanced, and ready to serve our Scouts locally and across the world.

    He has truly made a difference in the lives of thousands of young people in the Denver community by helping us deliver a value based, character building program.
