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 120 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 Homestead Elementary School Cafeteria, 7451 South Homestead Parkway, Centennial, CO 80112 (Located on East Dry Creek Road between Quebec and Holly).  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.

James Naumann's Eagle Project

Posted on Apr 24 2016 - 10:04pm
James Naumann's Eagle Project is coming up. Please go to the calendar on the website and sign up to help. The project is to build 5 large boxes for Fort Logan National Cemetery.  These 8' long boxes will be used to store some of the 90,000 flags that are placed on the graves for special occasions such as Memorial Day. 
 
On Saturday May 21st in the morning, we will be painting all the wood pieces. Please come in old clothes that you can get paint on.  On Sunday May 22nd in the afternoon we will be assembling the boxes and touching up the paint.  We could use a couple of screw guns.
 
We will be delivering the boxes to Fort Logan on Saturday May 29th, when we will also help put out the flags onto the graves.
(Reminder: scouts receive service hours for work on an Eagle Project)

Scout help needed for fire victims

Posted on Apr 23 2016 - 11:36am
The Red Cross today requested the support of the Boy Scouts to help with the logistics of moving the possessions of 132 residents who are displaced by an apartment fire in downtown Littleton.  The fire occurred on Sunday the 17th at the Southview Palace Towers, 5800 So. Windermere St.  The apartment house sits between the Troop 444 and 114 meeting locations and both units have provided early-stage support for displaced residents.
 
I have asked the Emergency Prep Team to undertake the support of moving operations that could extend over the next 10 days.  Joe Black, Chair of the E-Prep Team, will lead this coordination effort.  By this email, I am requesting that you forward this request for Scout-power to your Unit leaders.  The request is for Scouters, Scouting adults and moving-capable Scouts to support this effort with: 
1.       Furniture and personal items capable vehicles (pickups, vans, etc.).  We will not be moving appliances.
2.       Unit and personal trailers. 
3.       Plastic lawn bags.
4.       Writing materials for inventory, names, addresses, etc.
 
The project needs about 60 volunteers per day starting on Friday the 22nd and potentially through April 30.  Available volunteers should contact Joe Black on 303-906-4110.  Email is scouter554@aol.com
 
This email is being sent to the District Commissioners of Timberline, Arapahoe, Pioneer Trails, the Venturing Program Commissioner, and the Order of the Arrow and Bighorn teams with the hope that, even with the Scout Show this weekend, we can muster the needed resources.  Please let Joe know what you think can be provided.  
 
I appreciate your support – this is what Scouting is all about.  Please don’t hesitate to let me know your questions.

Camp Alexander Medical Forms

Posted on Mar 28 2016 - 3:27pm

For those scouts attending Camp Alexander this summer, please be aware that there is a slight difference in the required medical forms than what you are accustomed to. 

The second page of the Part B form must be signed by a medical professional (MD, NP, or PA) to authorize administration of any over-the-counter medications to your scout.  Historically this signature has only been needed to authorize administration of prescription medications.  If you anticipate your scout needing any over-the-counter medications (tylenol, benadryl, etc.), please ensure that the part B is signed by a medical professional. 

As Camp Alexander is an overnight stay of more than two nights, the Part C form must also be completed by a medical professional.  It is not too early to begin making arrangements for completion of these medical forms! 

The full scout medical form is available on the troop website in the "Forms" folder via the "Files" link under the Menu.
