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.

High Adventure Trips - 2015

Posted on Jul 14 2014 - 4:49pm

Greetings Scouters:

It is already time to be considering High Adventure Trips for Summer 2015.  Among other activities, the Troop is considering a trip to the amazing new Summit-Bechtel High Adventure Base in Glen Jean, West Virginia.  This is the Boy Scout’s newest High Adventure Base and offers a tremendous breadth of options to Scouts for the pursuit of outdoor activities that are not commonly offered elsewhere.  These include river rafting, kayaking, climbing, BMX biking, and a ¾ mile Zipline - just to name a few of the options.

If Scouts have interest in attending and/or parents have interest in being an Adult Leader for this trip, please register through the sign-up page.  This is not a firm commitment to attend – it just identifies you as a potential candidate for planning purposes.  Final rosters, timing, etc. will be determined in early Fall of 2014.  Please refer to the sign-up page for further details.

Posted on Jul 12 2014 - 5:56pm

If you are a driver scheduled to pick up scouts from Camp Ben Delatour on Saturday, July 19th, the camp has requested that you be at the camp by 8:00 AM.  It is a 2.5-3 hour drive from Centennial, so please plan your drive time accordingly.

Parents:  The scouts are scheduled to leave camp between 9:00-9:30 AM.  Their anticipated arrival back to Homestead is between noon and 2:00 PM depending on whether they drive straight back or stop for lunch.  Some vehicles may stop for lunch, others might not depending on the needs and desires of the drivers and scouts. 

Drivers for the return trip:  Please communicate with the families of the scouts in your vehicle to

(1) let them know your anticipated arrival time, and

(2) whether to meet you at Homestead for pick-up or if you will be taking the scouts directly to their houses.

Thank you.  We hope everyone has a great trip.
