Welcome!

Troop 373 is an active, fun organization dedicated to introducing young men from our community to the Boy Scouting values. We work with the scouts at all levels to set goals and work hard to achieve them. We are proud to be the home troop to 151 Eagle Scouts. It is our goal that each of our scouts achieves this honor, and we work with all scouts to accomplish this goal.

We live by the Scout Oath, Scout Law, Scout Motto and Scout Slogan. We're proud to be Scouts, and want to share that pride with others. We are independently chartered and we maintain an active schedule of fun events for the scouts including weekly troop meetings, monthly camping trips, summer camps, merit badge colleges and special events.

Troop 373 meetings are on Tuesday nights 7:00-8:30pm at the Newton Middle School Cafeteria, 4001 E. Arapahoe Rd., Centennial, CO 80122 (Located on the corner of Arapahoe and Colorado - enter from the east parking lot)  We meet weekly during the school year.

We invite you to visit our troop meetings to see what Boy Scouting is all about. Check out our next Troop Meeting date on the right under Upcoming Events. If you have any questions, want more information or want information about joining, please contact our Scoutmaster at scoutmaster@troop373.org.

Parent meeting this Tuesday

Posted on Dec 4 2016 - 7:56am

While the boys are filling up on sugar at the Christmas party, parents will meet in the mini-theater for a check-in.  This meeting is geared mainly to scouts who are fairly new to the troop (within the first year or two). Some of our committee members, ASMs and Eagle Scouts will be joining us to check-in about how your scouting experience is going. It's a great time to ask questions and get clarity about how your scout can continue to advance in rank and earn badges.  We'll review things like how you can help your scout, the process for boards of review and rank advancement, we'll have tips and tricks that have worked for families over the years....and answer any questions you have. When boys leave scouts it's generally because they are not advancing and don't know how to.  We want every scout and family to have a wonderful, enriching scouting experience so please come to learn more about how to enhance your son's scouting experience.

Scouts - remember to bring a board game and a holiday dessert to share.

High Adventure Options for 2018

Posted on Nov 17 2016 - 7:32am

Thank you for the great response to the possibility of a Philmont trek in 2018. Our High Advancement Chair, Mr. Arnold, would like to gauge interest in other High Adventure options for the summer of 2018 because those lotteries will be coming up in January.

Below are the options with links to learn more about each option.  There is a "2018 Summer High Adventure" sign up open - this is to gauge interest only. Please use the sign up and use the "Notes" field to indicate which option(s) you would be interested in. In most cases, scouts need to be 14 years old at the time of the camp in 2018. Summit Bechtel can be as young as 13. Adult leaders are always needed (if you are not currently High Adventure trained, you will have plenty of time to get that training before the trip). Please indicate both scout and adult interest. If, after seeing these options, you would like to "un-sign up" for Philmont 2018, please let Mrs. Goodhart know so she can make that change on your sign up. kwgoodhart@msn.com.

Summit Bechtel Reserve. This is the newest High Adventure Base in the scouting program located in West. Virginia. It's a huge camp with rock climbing, mountain biking, ziplining, and much more. Approx cost: $1800.

Rocky Mountain High Adventure Base. Located near Poncha Springs, scouts enjoy all our mountains have to offer - white water rafting, rock climbing and rappelling, mountain biking, etc. An affordable close-to-home option. Cost: under $500.

Seabase. We have two groups going to Seabase this summer. Located in Southern Florida, Seabase crews spend a week on a boat sailing around the Bahamas, snorkeling, fishing. It's a tough life but someone has to do it. Cost is approx: $1600.

Odyssey.  Spend a week on a tall ship in the Pacific Northwest sailing around the San Juan Islands. Learn to sail the historic boat, explore an island, swing off the boat into the Pacific, see Orcas! Cost: Approx $1000-$1200.

 

Northern Tiers/Boundary Waters.  Canoe through the amazing wilderness of Canada and Northern Minnesota. There are several different types of treks available - design the one that sounds the best! Cost: Approx $2000.
