If you are a boy between the ages of 11 and 18, Scouting
can help you learn essential life skills while having fun! Troop 271 is a new troop located in Lafayette, Colorado
and is chartered by JAX Mercantile
. We love adventure!
We are planning on our troop being very active, going to places like Mt. Rushmore, Philmont, Yellowstone and the fabulous Ben Delatour scout camp.
We will be going snow camping, rafting, hiking, shooting, climb 14’ers, and a wide variety of exciting activities. We also help people in the community by working with the Chamber of Commerce for the Peach Festival and Oatmeal Festival.
Besides having a good time, scouting prepares you with life skills that you won’t get in school. Canoeing, starting a campfire, pitching a tent, fixing a car, blasting clays with a shotgun, camping in the snow...there’s over 120 life skills that you can learn and earn a merit badge for.
We honor our Eagle Scouts on this page...our highest honor!
