Put Safety First!

Get Troop 444 essential First Aid training and supplies

5.21.13 - We would like to thank Kristin McDonald and T2 Technologies for a generous $100 donation to this Challenge (seen at right).   

The Challenge:

Littleton's Troop 444 will be attending summer camp soon, and they need your help to make the experience safe, smart and fun. The size of the troop and the size of their summer camp have expanded and 444 needs safety gear and training to meet legal safety requirements. They need a second AED (automated external defibrillator), at least 2 comprehensive wilderness First aid kits, and wilderness First Aid training for at least 15 adults. The summer camp cannot open without them, so pitch in today and save a memorable summer, making it a safe one too!

Devin Riles is a quiet guy. He’s not the kind to consider himself a hero. He’s just not that kind of guy. He’s as unsung as can be. And you’ll never hear him sing even a quarter-note about himself.

Project Info

Troop 444

Troop 444 is Littleton, CO's oldest Boy Scout troop. Largely outdoor-oriented, the Troop members test their Scouting skills against other Troops from the Denver area each year. Troop 444 is most proud of their Summer Camp Program. They’ve conducted their own week-long camp since 1964.
