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.

Sam's Eagle Scout Project Update

Posted on Apr 17 2021 - 7:54pm

Hello all,

After looking at the forecast for this weekend, I have decided to postpone my Eagle Scout project this weekend due to cold and snowy weather conditions. As of now, the Saturday (4/17) workday will be canceled, but we will still use Sunday (4/18) morning from 8:30 am - 12:00 pm to cut the wood. 

Important: Those of you signed up for Sunday morning or afternoon can stay or move to the Sunday morning sign up if you want to help cut wood. Only 4-5 Scouts are needed to help Mr. Rau cut wood, so check the attendee list before signing up. However, we still need Scouts to sign up for Sunday morning to make the process go faster. Breakfast (burritos and donuts) and snacks will still be provided! 

For the demolition and construction workdays, I'm planning on rescheduling to the weekend of May 1st and 2nd. New shift sign-ups will be posted on the Troop website shortly, so check your calendars and sign up for the new dates! 

As always, if you have any questions, feel free to reach out to me via email or text.

Yours in Scouting,
Sam Langley-Hawthorne

Swim tests for summer camp

Posted on Apr 10 2021 - 8:09pm
Swim tests will be offered for all SCOUTS as well as ADULTS planning to go to summer camp and/or high adventure trips this summer with Mr. Short. All planning to go to camp MUST take a swim test! 
The swim tests will take place on April 18th from 1-3 pm at Westridge Rec Center in Highlands Ranch (9560 Foothills Pkwy).  
Please sign up on the website ASAP. We will be required to wear masks while inside the facility, even when waiting to get into the pool. It is preferred that you arrive wearing your swim gear and minimize the time in locker rooms or changing areas. There is no cost for attending, just sign in as a guest at the front desk. There are other restrictions that will be discussed as we have a better idea of how many people sign up, related to the number of participants allowed inside at one time. 
Contact Denise Kaplan or David Short with questions. 
Aquatics work related to Rank Advancement or Swimming Merit badge WILL NOT be done on this date. A time will be scheduled for those specifically, likely in early June.
