The purpose of the Boy Scouts of America is to provide an educational program for boys and young adults to build character, to train in the responsibilities of participating citizenship, and to develop personal fitness.  Troop 870 has been serving the Highlands Ranch area since 1997, and our Mission is to have fun, be boy-lead, encourage advancement, provide regular opportunities for the completion of rank requirements, hold monthly outings, attend yearly summer camping and high adventure opportunities, and maintain a close connection to the Scout Oath and Law.  We hold weekly Troop meetings on Mondays from 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM at St Andrew.  Please contact us at GetMoreInfo@troop870.org for more information.

Pre-Philmont Hike

Posted on Mar 6 2017 - 1:25pm

Many of the Scouts headed to Philmont this summer completed their first conditioning hike today.  They hiked more than 6 miles of trails in the Highlands Ranch backcountry.  Great weather, great views . . . and a bit too much mud, but everyone had a great time and is ready for the next day hike on April 8.  It will be an 11-mile loop outside of Boulder and is open to any Scouts in the Troop, regardless of whether or not you are signed up for Philmont.  So join us for the hike next month and get some miles in!  IMPORTANT NOTE:  This group shot from today’s hike was taken on the trail bench built by Troop 870’s own Trevor O’Hearn (and crew), almost 4 years to the day after he constructed it as part of his Eagle Project!!!

Ad Altare Dei Counselor Training-Catholic Religious Emblem

If you would like to help guide the Catholic scouts in your troop (or neighboring troops) this is the training for you.  The AAD emblem is targeted for Catholic scouts who are 13-14 though older scouts can earn this emblem as well.   The program is organized in chapters based on the seven Sacraments.  The seven Sacraments are a primary means toward spiritual growth and are important for the Scout to understand.
