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 152 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.

March Campout

Posted on Feb 19 2017 - 9:29am

Sign up is now open for the March Campout at Peaceful Valley. Originally this was going to be a campout for new scouts, but as many of our new crossovers won't have had time to get their paperwork in, we have now changed it to a regular troop campout. Of course, any new scout interested in attending is most welcome (and parents too)!  It's a great way to get camping nights in, cooking requirements and other rank requirements. Please contact the adult leaders in charge (until a trip SPL is named then contact the trip SPL) about specific rank requirements you are hoping to have covered. The April Spring Campout at Cherry Creek will serve as the official new scout campout.

Posted on Feb 19 2017 - 7:55am

Board of Reviews

If your son is going for his first (or 5th) board of review and you're wondering how he can prepare, you'll find sample prep questions and procedures here. Also - Mr. Schmahl is the Committee Member who your son should contact before his BOR to get his Individual History Report (which he will need for his Board of Review).

Sign up for Summer Camp is now open!

Posted on Feb 7 2017 - 9:02am

This year we will be going to Camp Cris Dobbins at Peaceful Valley near Elbert, CO June 11-17. Summer Camp is one of the best ways for your scout to begin progressing through requirements and ranks and all new scouts are highly encouraged to go.

Dobbins offers a variety of programs for different ages. For new scouts and any scout not First Class yet, Cris Dobbins offers a "Cornerstone to Eagle" option which takes the boys through many of the activities required for Tenderfoot, Second Class and First Class. Scouts will also get started on a few merit badges.

For scouts already Second Class, Cris Dobbins offers a stand-alone "First Class" option for them to finish many of the activities required for First Class. They will also start on a few merit badges.

For older scouts (14 and older), Cris Dobbins offers a "Mission Frontier" program that can include things like rock climbing and rapelling, hiking and whitewater rafting.  This is a more high adventure option with no merit badges.

Camp Cris Dobbins offers dozens of merit badges including Eagle required badges for those working on merit badges.

More information about camp and offerings can be found here. Video about the camp is here.

Cost is $380 per scout for the week which includes meals.

Adult leaders are needed for this trip. Please consider spending a week with your scout watching him learn and grow and having a ton of fun! Email Mr. Arnold if you are interested.
