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.

Scuba Merit Badge and Open Water Certification

Posted on May 6 2015 - 8:27pm

Hello Scouts,

I'm trying to identify any and all scouts who are interested in earning their Open Water Certification and Scuba Merit Badge.  I'm working with A1 Scuba to provide a custom class this summer.  Once I've learned of the scouts who are interested we will meet and pick some times for the (~12 hours) of classroom and pool activities this summer.

Obtaining your Open Water Certification is a three step process (as described in the attachment):

1) Home study with course materials

2) Confined water (pool) and classroom

3) Open water dives

To complete the first 2 steps will cost about $250.  There are many options for the open water dives, so I will leave that step up to each scout individually.

To obtain the Scuba Merit Badge you must become open water certified and meet a few additional requirements (go here http://www.scouting.org/scoutsource/BoyScouts/AdvancementandAwards/MeritBadges/mb-scuba.aspx).

So, if you're interested in these activities please send me an email (drgarybond@gmail.com) expressing your interest, your willingness to pay the $250, and your parent's approval prior to May 15th.

Let's go blow some bubbles!
