High Adventure, Campout, and Service Ideas

You asked, and we answered.  As new leaders come into the Young Men’s, we’re often asked for recommendation on High Adventure, Over-nighters, and Service Project ideas.  We have reached out to each unit and compiled a list of success activities.  Take a look at the attached, see activities that other units have enjoyed, and feel free to try something new.  As always, we’re eager to hear about successful event you carry-out.


Remembering Trek

We want to thank again all of the leaders and youth who helped make Trek so successful!  It was an amazing experience for all that participated.  The video below will help cherish those wonderful memories.


Upcoming Events:

Leader Specific BSA Training – Thursday Aug 31st, 6:30 pm, Highlands Ranch Stake Center.  The following training will be available for all new leaders:

  • 11 year old scout leaders, Scoutmasters and Asst. Scoutmasters
  • Cub Scout Leaders
  • Chartered Organization Representative (Bishopric member)
  • Merit Badge Councilors
  • Scouting Safety Begins with Leadership

Please ensure any newly called leaders in your units are properly trained.

Youth Face to Face Event with Musical Artists – Wednesday Oct 11th, 6:00 pm MDT on  Choosing music that uplifts can make all the difference in the lives of your youth.  This Face to Face event will show them how good music can bless their lives as they ask questions, receive answers, and watch inspiring performances from five LDS music artists.

You could watch this as a youth activity, or youth could plan a fun get-together with family and friends at home.

Mini MTC – Friday Nov 3rd – Saturday Nov 4th.  Missionary service is a selfless act in which we can be the Lord’s instrument in bringing His message to His children.  This two day event will provide our Priests and Laurels a spiritually rich opportunity to walk in the shoes of a full-time missionary.  Activities will include spending the night with member families, proselytizing with full-time missionaries, sharing the gospel with investigators, participating in workshops, and listening to engaging speakers from across our Stake.

This is guaranteed to be an unforgettable event filled with opportunities to feel the spirit.  More details will follow as they are finalized.
