Welcome !

794logoChristian Troop 794 has been chartered to Mission Hill Church since March 1, 1992.  We are a family oriented year-round troop that convenes on Thursday night. Being a large troop with an annual membership of 70 scouts, we consistently earn the National Gold Level Award of Excellence for our annual program, which includes: outings, community service, summer camp and high adventure. We specialize in climbing Colorado’s 14’ers and participate in the Triple Crown Award by attending the National High Adventure Bases including; Philmont, Sea Base, Northern Tier & The Summit. We strongly believe in trained leadership and promote scout participation at ILST, BigHorn NYLT, NAYLE, Okpik, Wilderness First Aid & Leave No Trace. To subsidize our outdoor programming we participate in the annual DAC fundraiser - Trails End Popcorn. 25% of scouts who join Troop 794 earn the rank of Eagle Scout.

Spring is here. If you are interested in signing up for the Gardening MB please see Mr. Redfoot for a blue card. There are six requirements which include two that require growing plants.

You will be working independently at home/offsite and the badge should be complete by the end of the growing season. This is a perfect opportunity for those scouts that need Elective MB's for rank and also Eagles working on elective MB's for Palms.

2016 Swim Check

Posted on Mar 13 2016 - 1:10pm

We will have a swim check on March 24, 2016 from 7-9 p.m. at Westridge Rec Center in Highlands Ranch.  If you are a member of the Highlands Ranch Community Association it is zero cost to you, if not you need to bring $7.00.  The swim check will be in place of a normal troop meeting.  This will NOT be the only opportunity for swim check however it very likely will be the most convenient.

Please contact Mr. Gates asap with your rsvp, including your name, current rank and swim ability (i.e. have you easily passed the swim check in the past).  

2016 Beeper Easter Egg Hunt

Posted on Mar 9 2016 - 11:19pm

On March 19th Telephone Pioneers International will be hosting visually impaired kids with a special "Beeper Easter egg hunt" and "Beeper Baseball". This is an opportunity for scouts to earn community service project hours for their next rank. We need 10 scouts and several adults volunteers to help with this project. We will rake several areas to make sure the ground is free of debris for the egg hunt/baseball game. We will help unload supplies and set up game/craft stations. Scouts can participate in games, craft projects and will be treated to burgers for lunch. This is an extremely fun event for all involved.
