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 155 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.

Changes to 1st Class, 2nd Class and Eagle Palm requirements

Posted on Jul 11 2017 - 8:41am

Beginning in August, there are changes to being made to camping requirements for 1st and 2nd Class. It basically reduces the number of camping nights needed to attain 1st and 2nd class, while leaving in place the overall number of camping nights for Eagle.  Read here.

Also beginning in August, BSA has removed a "waiting period" obstacle for older scouts earning bronze, gold and silver Eagle Palms. Great news for newly minted Eagle scouts about to turn 18 who have earned additional merit badges. Read here.

Scout Accounts

Posted on Jul 11 2017 - 8:22am

Scout accounts have been updated to include flower sales. Did you know you can use money in your scout account for:

* Court of Honor dinners.

* Anything you purchase at the scout store.

* Summer camp fees.

* Annual scout dues or any fees associated with scout activities (campouts/Jump Street/etc.).

* Eagle project expenses.

* Any equipment purchased needed for a scout event (e.g. hiking boots).

For things like COH dinners and camp fees, just let Mr. Bond know you want to use money out of your scout account. For anything you received a receipt for, simply turn those receipts into Mr. Bond for reimbursement.

How can you accumulate money faster in your account? Use your King Soopers/BSA gift card for everything at King Soopers - groceries, gas and pharmacy. Don't have a gift card? Reach out to Mr. Short who is the keeper of the gift cards. Encourage grandparents to also use a King Soopers/BSA gift card!

SCOUT TIP OF THE WEEK

Posted on Jul 2 2017 - 8:53am

Scouts -

Now that you're home from summer camp and have likely earned a new rank or a merit badge or two, now is a good time to begin working on two merit badges that you'll need to attain the rank of Eagle. Personal Management and Family LIfe.

Family Life is all about learning the importance of families, how to help make sure the family is communicating well, and being a contributing member of the house in terms of chores and responsibilities.

Personal Management is all about learning about the value of money - how is money made, how to budget your own money effectively so you are earning and saving, etc.

Both merit badges require you to create a plan (e.g. a chore list for Family Life, a budget for Personal Management) and then track those plans for 90 days. 

Here's a clue about why it's great to do these merit badges together: with the help of your parents, draw up a plan for chores that you will do for 90 days. Ask  your mom or dad if it would be possible for you to receive a weekly allowance for doing these chores (especially if you're not old enough to be earning money mowing lawns etc). Based on your weekly allowance, work with your parents to draw up a budget. Go over both of these plans with Mrs. Johnston (merit badge counselor). Then download the work book and work on the other requirements over the 90 days you're tracking your plans.

You'll be done before you know it!

Flower Sales Update

Posted on Jun 25 2017 - 8:38pm
Hi All,
Thanks to great efforts by many, the flower sale turned out to be another good year.
The committee has decided that the troop finances are in great shape.  Therefore, we will be distributing 30% of your sales to your scout accounts.  If you also participated in the Highlands Ranch canvassing, those sales will be distributed among all scouts that participated in the canvassing.
Mr. Bond has posted the updated information to your scout accounts on the website so it is available to use for summer camps, anything you buy at the scout store, scout dues which come up in January, and camping equipment. Mr. Bond can answer any questions about how you can use money is scout accounts.  
 
Thanks again for a great fundraiser!
