for Troop 444

Devin Riles, Brian Vogt and Denver Botanic Gardens want your help to get new camping equipment for Troop 444

Update: Well, what can we say? We were able to purchase the tent and stove and are excited to test them out soon! With this project, the boys in Boy Scout Troop 444 collected cans to raise enough money to replace our aging cook tent and stove. None of this would have been possible without the help of Brian Vogt and the Denver Botanic Gardens, who not only recognized our project but helped us financially.
