Welcome to the Gateway District!

The Mission of the Boy Scouts of America is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral decisions throughout their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law.

From Idaho Springs to Wheat Ridge, Lakewood to Arvada, Golden to Broomfield, Gateway District serves more than 2500 Scouts of all ages, boys and girls through Cub Scouting, Scouts BSA, Venturing, and Exploring. Rated Gold in Journey to Excellence our Scouts are Prepared. For Life.

From summiting Mt. Kilimanjaro to Staffing at Bighorn, serving their communities through Eagle projects, Scouting for Food, and more, earning merit badges from Engineering to Fly Fishing Scouts live for adventure.
