Each year scouts traveling through Colorado get their Rocky Mountain high with visits to the Garden of the Gods; the United States Air Force Academy; Pike’s Peak; the United States Olympic Training Center; the Flying W Ranch; whitewater rafting on the Arkansas River; Bents Old Fort and end the day with an overnight stay at the Koshare Indian Museum.
Since our first overnight stay in 1950, scouters from around the world have found that the Koshare Museum is the perfect stop to rest and a wonderful source for inspiration. To this day many scouters who stayed with us years ago as kids, bring their own kids to see the spectacular round room they slept beneath when they were just boys.
"...we spent the night sleeping on the same floor where we were told that President Dwight D. Eisenhower stood when he visited the Koshares. A place of promise. A place of dreams. A place of historical proportions. A place where boys became men. How great an opportunity was that for our scouts?"
-- Scoutmaster Bill Shaffer
Throughout the year, we always do enjoy hosting the hundreds of scout troops traveling through the area. And at a price of $6.50 per person ($65 group minimum) per night with free admission to the Koshare Indian Museum, the accomadations provide troops with an inexpensive overnight stay.

Watch A Koshare Performance
See the Koshare Indian Dancers, a group of Boy Scouts who danced their way to fame in paint and feathers.
Of their performance, the noted New York drama critic, John Chapman, once said, "I have been to many spectacles, from Madison Square Garden and the New Amsterdam Theatre to the Hollywood Bowl and the Santa Anita race track, and there is nothing in my memory to match a performance of these Boy Scouts which was recently given at the Red Rock Theatre, up in the hills from Denver."
