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 164 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.

Veteran's Day Parade

Troop 373 will march in the annual Veteran's Day parade to honor those who have served our country. Sign up is now open! 

14er Hike

Posted on Sep 2 2019 - 4:18pm

Come join us for a day trip adventure! Scouts who complete this hike will earn a Colorado 14er Club patch. 

These are some of the easier 14ers, if there is such a thing as an 'easy' 14er. Families are welcome. 

There are a few options for which 14er we do depending on group size and ability:

  •       Mt Evans from Summit Lake - 5.5 miles, 2000 ft elevation gain - $10 per car national forest fee
  •       Mt Bierstadt from Guanella Pass - 7.0 miles, 2850 ft elevation gain 
  •       Torreys Peak -  7.5 miles, 3000 ft elevation gain 

Trails are Class 1 to a little bit of Class 2,  so it is a nice trail the whole way up. 

We need to start early in order to reach the summit by mid-morning to avoid afternoon thunderstorms and to secure a close parking space. On busy weekend days parking can be 1 plus miles from the trailhead, so we need the 4-5 am start from Newton.

Wear sturdy hiking shoes/boots. Bring a day backpack with rain jacket, sunscreen, fleece hat, gloves/mittens, baseball cap, snacks and between 70 and 100 ounces of water and energy drinks.

Please sign up on the website so we can coordinate drivers.

We'd want to stop on the way back for a late lunch - likely Beaujo's pizza in Idaho Springs.  Bring $20 for lunch and gas money.

Kyle Arnold will be the scout in charge for this hike, and Jim Arnold will be the adult in charge. 

Questions: Contact Kyle Arnold (Karnoldco@gmail.com) 720-595-6015 or Jim Arnold (jimmtman@yahoo.com) 303-260-8661, but preferably Kyle Arnold.
