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.

Den Chief Training

Posted on Nov 21 2020 - 7:47pm

A Den Chief is a Scout, Venturer, or Sea Scout assisting a Cub Scout den. But the story is far more important than those words suggest as the Den Chief:

  • Serves as a Scouting role model for the Cub Scouts in the den, as well as the entire pack;
  • Promotes Scouting in general and the local troop in particular;
  • Encourages the transition of Webelos Scouts into Scouts BSA;
  • Holds a leadership position in the troop or crew, thus fulfilling an advancement requirement in the unit.

    This training is designed to build on each of these ideas using a framework that will allow the new Den Chief, or perhaps the experienced Den Chief looking for new ideas, to have fun and learn the role.

    The following link allows you to launch the online version of the training.  Please note that there is no tracking and if you exit from the training prior to the completion of it and without printing your certificate you will have to restart the training from the beginning.

Ice Climbing Day

Posted on Nov 8 2020 - 7:32pm

Climb the 50 foot ice wall at Camp Alexander (near Woodland Park). The troop provides all gear. A fun way to experience the outdoors!

Trip is being led by Mr. Arnold. SPL for the trip is to be determined.

There are 3 dates being considered: January 9th from 7:30- 10:30a; January 16th 7:30- 10:30a or 11a- 2pm; January 23rd 7:30- 10:30a or 11a-2pm. 

If the 11a-2p option is chosen then Scouts will likely meet at 9am to drive to Camp A. Climb from 11-2.  Home by 4pm or 5pm. We usually stop at Rudy's BBQ on the way home.

Cost is $45. plus money for lunch if we stop for lunch. Scouts must be 13 and older. The climbing class is limited to 12 participants. Scouts will have first priority but if we have fewer than 12 scouts then adults can climb as well!

Bryan on Scouting contacted dozens of colleges and universities across the U.S. — everything from large public schools to small liberal arts colleges.
