Peaceful Valley Scout Ranch, Elbert

Peaceful Valley Scout Ranch is turning 50 years old in 2015 and is throwing a birthday bash so epic it requires an entire weekend of jam-packed fun to contain all the festivities! You and your Scouts are invited to join us in the celebrations by attending the Council Camporee on September 18-20, 2015.
The 2015 Council Camporee is the official kick-off event of the 50th Anniversary of Peaceful Valley. Accordingly, we have planned more activities/events for your Scouts to prepare for and enjoy: exciting programming that has made the Denver Area one of the premier Boy Scout councils in the country.

So many activities you won’t have time to rest!

Volunteer Opportunities

Posted by ksullivan on Aug 29 2015 - 8:23am

The Castle Rock Downtown Alliance has asked for our help running, mainly set-up and clean up.  They have offered to make a donation to our troop for every event worked.  That money will go to your scout accounts, unless you want community service hours.  Below are the dates and events.  Most of these events take place at Festival Park.  Please let me know if you are able to help.  As always we ask the adults to help out and support our troop.
