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 located in Lafayette, Colorado
and is chartered by JAX Mercantile
. We love adventure!
Our troop has been very active, going to places like Florida Sea base, Mt. Rushmore, Japan for the World Jamboree, Malita Island in Montana and fabulous Ben Delatour
We have done snow camping, Kayaking, rafting, hiking, and a wide variety of exciting activities. We also help people in the community by working with the City of Lafayette for Lafayette's Open Space day and Christmas tree recylcing.
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!
