If you find yourself here, you have reached Troop 870's old website.  Please go here for our current up-to-date site.


The purpose of the Boy Scouts of America is to provide an educational program for boys, girls 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 and girl 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 that usually occur on Mondays from 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM at St. Andrew - always confirm the day of under Upcoming Events on the right side of this page.  For more information, please click on Contact Us on the menu at the left to send us an e-mail message.

Book Drive Efforts Called out in PBS Segment

Posted on Apr 2 2021 - 2:40pm

BookGive was the beneficiary of a book drive coordinated by two of our own - NathanD and AndrewD - as part of the completion of their Reading merit badges.  And many of the rest of you contributed to it at our last Court of Honor.  PBS produced a short video on BookGive which happens to include footage from the day books were delivered.  Look at roughly time index 2:45 to see T-870 represented well by Nathan and Andrew!
