2023 Charter Renewal is now open

Thank you for supporting the Boy Scouts of America and supporting Denver area youth. Charter Renewal is an annual process to re-establish and re-affirm relationships with the Boy Scouts of America (BSA). Remember: All Units in Greater Colorado Council expire December 31, 2023. 

Units should plan to complete charter renewal via the National Internet Charter Renewal System by December 19, 2023. On-time charter renewal of your unit is important. Instructions provided below will assist in the charter renewal process. Again, this year the entire process can be completed online. 

Access to the site is tied to your my.scouting.org username and password. Any member of your unit’s Key 3, as well as a Key 3 Delegate, can access and complete the charter renewal process, though the final approval must come from the Charter Organization Representative.

Colorado Gives Day & Investment in Character

November kicks off the Colorado Gives Day campaign.

What if there was a day that as Coloradans, we got to celebrate the impact of coming together and lifting up our local communities? Luckily for all of us, there is such a day and it is called Colorado Gives Day.

Since 2010, you’ve been supporting nonprofits through Colorado Gives Day, raising more than $415 million to help our communities thrive.  You can donate here:

What is an Investment in Character?

The Investment in Character Campaign is the largest contributor to the Greater Colorado Council’s annual budget, and it is used to support important program elements such as camping facilities, volunteer training, professional staff, registration assistance, camperships, and much more. All money raised in this campaign stays local (within our district) and goes back into supporting your unit. Investment in Character presentations are a way to ensure that every family has an opportunity to give.

To learn more about Investment in Character and what a presentation might look like, please watch this short video from the 2021 Campaign.

The Greater Colorado Council is proud to be able to provide insurance coverage to its registered members and leaders.  Liability insurance protection is afforded to those who donate the use of their facilities for Scouting activities. Certificates of insurance can be provided to the property owner in most cases upon request. All requests must be in writing, and submitted at least 2 weeks in advance using this form.

Rank Requirements

Scouts and Scouters should follow the requirements as written on this page on Scouting.org. Check out this guide from Bryan On Scouting!

Scouting BSA changes to rank advancement – Tenderfoot to First Class: Beginning August 1, 2022, minor modifications to the Scouts BSA requirements regarding outdoor ethics for the ranks of Scout through Star will take effect. Scouts may continue using the existing requirements for the rank on which they are currently working, or they may choose to use the new requirements. Scouts must use the new requirements once they advance to their next rank. On January 1, 2023, all Scouts must use only the new requirements. ​Specific changes to be coming soon.
