Boy Scout Troop 78 was founded in Boulder, Colorado in 1963 and continues to be one of the most active and successful Scout troops in Colorado.
Get to know Troop 78 and our old-school approach to Scouting:
- Troop 78 spends more time outdoors than inside. We meet weekly, camp monthly and year-round, and enjoy adventures each summer. See our Outings & Adventures.
- We’re engaging. Our troop gets new Scouts engaged through our On to First Class program and then keeps boys interested in Scouting through high school by offering leveled challenges through our Stairstep to Adventure Program.
- Our program is Scout-led and adult-enabled. Scouts run the meetings, choose the outings, and run the programming. Adults advise, mentor, and keep it safe and wholesome.
- We use Scouting’s Patrol Method to teach leadership skills.
- We focus on skills, abilities, and leadership. Rank advancement occurs naturally through participation in Troop 78 outings and adventures.
Troop 78 provides Scouts with opportunities to develop citizenship, leadership, self-esteem, confidence, self-reliance, resourcefulness, and a genuine desire to help others at all times. Go deeper into the Troop 78 Way.
