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 176 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.

one of the oldest traditions in the history of Scouting. Patrols will compete in various
competitions testing their Scout skills from the ranks of Scout to First Class, as well as, other fun

End Date: August 29, 2021
 
Event Details:
 
Registration is now open for an overnight backpacking trip to the Lost Creek Wilderness (past Bailey and over the Kenosha Pass).
 
Departure will be 7am on Saturday, returning early Sunday afternoon.  After leaving Newton at 7am, we will drive to the trailhead and then hike in 2-4 miles.  This should allow us to get to camp around lunchtime.  After setting up camp, the afternoon is free or scouts can work on rank advancement.  We will cook dinner in patrols, and have an evening campfire if fire conditions allow.  After breakfast on Sunday  morning we will pack up, and hit the trail back to our cars.  We should be home at Newton early afternoon at the latest.
 
All scouts will earn one camping night.  Younger scouts will have the opportunity to work on first class and second class rank advancement including one of the camping night requirements.  Older scouts will be able to work on skills for more difficult backpacking trips in the future.
 
We will have a shakedown for the trip immediately after our first troop meeting next week (Monday August 23).

Mr Langley-Hawthorne and Mr Short are the adult leaders for this trip.  Additional adults are also very welcome and encouraged  to attend.

Please contact  Mr Short or Mr Langley-Hawthorne if you have any questions.
