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 179 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. (Please note that we are currently meeting on Monday nights at a temporary location which can be found on the troop calendar)

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.

Scouting for Food Drive

Posted on Oct 23 2021 - 8:24pm

Denver Area Scouts will participate in the “Annual Scouting for Food” which provides food to over 100 food banks throughout the Metro area. Door Hangers and Bags will be provided for Scouts to deliver to their neighborhoods beginning Saturday, November 6th 9:00am – 12:00pm with a request to fill a bag with food and pick up on the morning of Saturday, November 13th beginning at 9:00am and dropping off at several local Food Banks directly at 1:00pm.  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..

Boys will earn service hours toward rank requirements for participating.  High School siblings that need service credit for graduation can also participate.  Pack 696 will again be providing breakfast bags for all of our Scouts that register in advance.

Please sign up for one or both of the days under Event Registration.

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

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.
