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.  For more information, please click on Contact Us on the menu at the left to send us an e-mail message.
