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.

Noah Cohrs Eagle Project

Posted on Mar 6 2021 - 8:16pm

Hello! 

In case you don’t know me, I’m Noah Cohrs, and I’m a Life Scout in the troop who has recently decided to begin working on my Eagle Scout Service Project.

For my Eagle Project, I will be assembling 200 first aid kits to help homeless veterans in the Denver area. As a part of my project, I’ll be holding a supply collection drive, and I need your help! We will be dropping bags and flyers off on doorsteps from 9:00 - 11:00 AM on Saturday, March 13, and picking them up from 9:00 to 11:00 on Saturday, March 20. If you need service hours for rank requirements, you will be able to earn them by helping out.

We will meet at the Cougar Run Elementary Parking Lot (8780 Venneford Ranch Rd, Highlands Ranch, CO 80126) at 9:00. Wear your Class A uniform, and bring a mask. 

I will need 6-10 scouts for each day, as well as adult drivers. Please note on the sign up if you are willing to drive. 

Thank You!

Eagle Scout Project Sign Up

Posted on Feb 20 2021 - 4:31pm

Hi my name is David Schmahl and I am a Life Scout and a junior at Cherry Creek High School.  I am working on my Eagle Rank and I am looking for scouts to help with my Eagle Project.

We will be building two wooden benches for my church’s preschool and we will construct these benches on two separate days. These dates are Sunday, February 28th and Sunday, March 7th. I would love any help if you are available. This will be a great way to earn service hours for rank requirements if you need them.

On both days we will plan on working from 10 AM-4 PM in my garage, and any hours you can work would be appreciated. I am planning two shifts for each day and am hoping to get 6 scouts to work for each shift. The shifts will be from 10 AM-1 PM and 1 PM-4 PM, and you are more than welcome to work multiple shifts. I will be providing food and snacks for the scouts and will be sure to follow COVID-19 guidelines.

Please wear Class B uniforms, and plan on bringing work gloves, a face mask and water.  My address is 6442 East Costilla Place, Centennial, 80112, in the Homestead neighborhood.  My phone number is 720-545-8536 if you have any questions.

Thank you!

David Schmahl

Update on swimming requirements

Posted on Feb 20 2021 - 4:30pm

Q: Will there be any changes to the Swimming requirements for Second and First class?

Swimming remains a major health and safety concern and cannot be abandoned by Scouts BSA. With that in mind, the Swimming rank requirements for Second Class (5b) and First Class (6a) may be deferred until each Scout’s next rank, as necessary (through Life, but not Eagle).

Second Class requirement (5b) Demonstrate your ability to pass the BSA beginner test: Jump feet first into water over your head in depth, level off and swim 25 feet on the surface, stop, turn sharply, resume swimming, then return to your starting place.

First Class requirement (6a) Successfully complete the BSA swimmer test.

This temporary deferment will allow Scouts to advance in rank up to, and including Life Scout, but not beyond. All other rank requirements must still be earned to advance. When conditions warrant and upon direction from the National Council, these requirements will be reinstated with 30 days’ notice to our Scouting family via Workplace, Bryan on Scouting, Scouting Wire, social media, and any other means determined appropriate.

For clarity, the following swimming requirements can be completed on dry land and are not a hindrance to advancing:

Second Class requirement (5c) Demonstrate water rescue methods by reaching with your arm or leg, by reaching with a suitable object, and by throwing lines and objects.

First Class requirement (6e) With a helper and a practice victim, show a line rescue both as tender and as rescuer. (The practice victim should be approximately 30 feet from shore in deep water.)

Out of State Summer Camp Opportunity - Medicine Mountain, South Dakota

Posted on Jan 30 2021 - 1:58pm

Event:  Medicine Mountain (South Dakota) Summer Camp/Adventure 2021 

When:  Sun June 27th – Sat July 3rd, 2021 (Week 3) 

Medicine Mountain is a Scouts BSA summer camp near Mt. Rushmore, Crazy Horse, the Black Hills and many other sights.  Mr. Brion, Mr. Rau, and Mr. Johnston are interested in taking a group of scouts to summer camp there if we have enough scouts interested.  Registering for this on our website is merely indicating that you are interested in learning more about the trip - it is not a final commitment as the trip has not been finalized yet.  

Medicine Mountain offers traditional merit badges that the Scout can take on Mon & Tues.  We will spend Wed thru Fri visiting the local attractions (Mt Rushmore, Crazy Horse, Wind Cave, Deadwood, Gold Mine Tour, Jeep Trail Ride (Custer State Park) and Horseback Riding.  They also offer high adventure options like caving, rock climbing, ATV riding, and mountain biking for older scouts on Thurs/Fri. The setting is particularly beautiful and Medicine Mountain offers a family campground for families of scouts wanting to see the sights and enjoy the beauty. Our Troop will be staying in the Family Campground.  For specific information of the Camp, see more information here.

 Our Troop will need to pay a deposit soon to reserve a spot for Week 3.  The prerequisite for Scouts attending will be that they must have already complete a local week long Summer Camp here in Colorado.  Although there is no limit to the number of scouts that we can reserve, we will be limited by transportation, since we will be travelling to local attractions everyday using Parent vehicles.  If we are limited by seating capacity, priority will be given by RSVP order.  If parents are planning to attend, please RSVP on the Troop website and add how many additional scouts they can carry in their vehicles.  The Troop will be bringing a trailer for all personal gear for this trip.

 Approx Trip cost (based on last years budget) was $600 per Scout, $350 per Adult.  Cost includes all Camp Fees, Registrations, Transportation, Meals, and all Event Fees for planned activities (Cave entrance, Horseback riding, Jeep Tour, Mt. Rushmore, and Crazy Horse). 

 We will have a kickoff meeting around mid-Feb for those that have signed up to begin the planning effort.
