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 184 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, 4401 E. Arapahoe Rd., Centennial, CO 80122 (Located on the corner of Arapahoe and Colorado - enter from the east parking lot). Occasionally we meet at the Greenwood Village Maintenance Facility. Be sure to check our calendar for the correct location. 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.

Annual Troop Ski Trip

Posted on Dec 8 2022 - 11:25am

Join the fun on our 28th annual ski trip to Copper Mountain!

We are the only Scout Troop in Colorado that is allowed to stay in the ski patrol headquarters. 

This trip will take place the weekend of February 11th and 12th.

Scouts will gather at Newton Middle School early on Saturday, February 11 and car-pool to Copper Mountain. We'll drop our overnight packs at the ski patrol headquarters at the top of the mountain and spend the day skiing and riding. On Saturday night, Scouts and parent chaperones will stay in the ski patrol headquarters at the top of the mountain and ski down before lifts open on Sunday the 12th. Fingers crossed for fresh powder - we have had this several times in the past few years!

Anyone who wants to stay in the ski patrol lodge overnight needs to be able to ski or snowboard BLUE runs and ski down the mountain in the morning with a back pack holding their overnight gear.  A maximum of 20 people can stay in the hut overnight.

If you do not want to stay in the ski patrol hut overnight, you are still welcome to come up for the day with the troop (but would need to have arrangements for transportation home when the lifts close).

More details can be found through the Troop calendar and Event Registration section or reach out to Stuart Jones.

Scouting for Food Drive 2022

Posted on Oct 27 2022 - 6:58pm

Denver Area Scouts will participate in the “Annual Scouting for Food” which provides food to over 100 food banks throughout the Metro area.  All of our food collected will be distributed to food banks in Highlands Ranch, Littleton, and Castle Rock.  All Scouting units are encouraged to participate in this Council-wide community service initiative. Scouting for Food participation will inspire our young people and teach them the importance of community service. Service is a key ingredient in Citizenship! It will also reinforce Scouting's positive contribution to the general community.

 Troop 373 will join forces with Cub Scout pack 696 again this year to cover the Northeast part of Highlands Ranch to deliver 2,000 bags and flyers.  We have done this area every year since 2007 when it was started by Mr. and Mrs. Arnold.

 There are three ways you can support this years Scouting for Food Drive: 

1. Come to the Troop meeting for a bag assembly and staple party.  

        When: Tuesday Nov 1st 7- 8:30pm at Newton Middle School

        At the weekly Troop 373 Meeting, we will be assembling the 2,000 bags and flyers, and sorting them into the 18 different routes.  Pack 696 Cub Scout and Parents are invited to help and attend the meeting.  Please bring staplers.  Troop parents will also be needed for help to get these all done in the meeting time.

2. Help with the Food Drive bag drop off

      When: Saturday November 5th 2- 4pm at Cougar Run Elementary

      We will be dropping of the grocery bags and flyers. Scouts will work in pairs of two, with two pairs generally working opposite sides of the street. Adult drivers are needed to drive along with the boys and store the food bags.

Boys will earn service hours toward rank requirements for participating.  High School siblings that need service credit for graduation can also participate.  Snacks will again be provided for all of our Scouts that register in advance.

Meet in the parking lot of Cougar Run Elementary (8780 Venneford Ranch Rd, Highlands Ranch, CO). 

Since we have 2,000 bags and flyers to distribute to homes, all scouts are encouraged to help to get this completed that day in a few hours.  Without a lot of help, this stretches out over several days for a few people.

Mr. Rau will be leading this event, and is looking for a Scout Leader to help out.  Please let him know if you are interested.

Parent drivers are needed. Please indicate in the sign up if you can drive.  The more drivers we have, the faster it will get done.

 3. Help with the Food drive bag pick up 

      When: Saturday November 12th 9am- 1pm (sometimes ends sooner)

      We will collect the donations. We will then drop off the collections at a local food bank at 1pm. Last year, we collected 5,354 items of food (557 bags returned, totaling 6,300 lbs.). 

Scouts will earn service hours toward rank requirements for participating.  High School siblings that need service credit for graduation can also participate.  Snacks will again be provided for all of our Scouts that register in advance.

Meet in the parking lot of Cougar Run Elementary (8780 Venneford Ranch Rd, Highlands Ranch, CO).. 

Parent drivers are needed. Please indicate in the sign up if you can drive.  We will also need drivers to help take all the of food to the Local Food Banks in Highlands Ranch, Littleton, and Castle Rock immediately following the collection.
