Boy Scouts of America, Denver Area Council

Spend Your 2022 Summer with Us

 Join us at Camp Cris Dobbins to enjoy views of Pikes Peak and the front range of the Rocky Mountains. Scouts will have a choice between the more than 50 merit badges offered here, and will love spending time on the water slides at the outdoor pool, dusting a clay at the Olympic shotgun range, channeling their inner movie star in our Movie Making program, or pretending to be Indiana Jones at our STEM lodge archaeology dig site.
