On May 1, 2019, the Denver Area Council (DAC) expanded the communities it serves to include 14 additional counties in western Colorado. The change will allow youth in these communities to continue their Scouting journey with additional programs, financial support, and access to dedicated volunteers and staff who help make Scouting possible.
Since 1913, The DAC has made an impact on youth and families in the Denver Metro Area by instilling Scouting values and morals into programs helping shape youth into future leaders. As one of the largest Scouting organizations, the DAC is committed to strengthening our communities by providing innovative programs that build character and leadership skills.
“This is an exciting opportunity for Scouting on the western slope of our state,” says John G. Cabeza, Scout Executive/CEO of the Denver Area Council. “This merger will strengthen the foundation for Scouting in these communities and allow the DAC to expand its positive impact on youth.”
The Denver Area Council now serves more than 34,000 youth and the following 24 counties: Adams, Arapahoe, Broomfield, Clear Creek, Denver, Douglas, Elbert, Gilpin, Jefferson, Park, Delta, Eagle, Garfield, Gunnison, Hinsdale, Mesa, Moffat, Montrose, Ouray, Pitkin, Rio Blanco, Routt, San Miguel, and Summit.
As Scouting continues to expand throughout Colorado, all youth will continue to have the opportunity to explore, engage, and become Prepared. For Life®.
