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.

Summer Camp at Chris Dobbins

Posted on Jan 9 2021 - 3:58pm

Sign up for Summer Camp is now open!  ** Initial Signup Deadline 2/14/21

This year we will be going to Camp Chris Dobbins at Peaceful Valley near Elbert, CO June 6-12. Summer Camp is one of the best ways for your scout to begin progressing through requirements and ranks and all new scouts are highly encouraged to go. 

Dobbins offers a variety of programs for different ages. For new scouts and any scout not First Class yet, Chris Dobbins offers a "Cornerstone to Eagle" option which takes the boys through many of the activities required for Tenderfoot, Second Class and First Class. Scouts will also get started on a few merit badges.

For scouts already Second Class, Chris Dobbins offers a stand-alone "First Class" option for them to finish many of the activities required for First Class. They will also start on a few merit badges.

For older scouts (14 and older), Chris Dobbins offers a "Mission Frontier" program that can include things like rock climbing and rappelling, hiking and whitewater rafting.  This is a more high adventure option with no merit badges.

Camp Chris Dobbins offers dozens of merit badges including Eagle required badges for those working on merit badges.

More information about camp and offerings can be found here. Video about the camp is here.

Cost is $450 per scout for the week which includes meals.

Please sign up through the Event Registration section by 2/14/21 to express your interest for camp and allow the Troop to make initial booking before spots are filled.

Adult leaders are needed for this trip. Please consider spending a week with your scout watching him learn and grow and having a ton of fun!  Email Mr. Reynolds if you are interested.

Scholarship opportunity for 2020 Eagle scouts

Posted on Jan 9 2021 - 3:08pm
 The Optimist Club offers an annual scholarship opportunity.  
 
 If any of our new Eagle Scouts in 2020 would like to participate in this scholarship program, the Scout will need to deliver / send a nice clean and complete copy of their Eagle Scout project to the Denver council offices in Lakewood.  It is preferred you do this in person, but it can be done by mail.  Time is off the essence as the scholarship review team is currently collecting Eagle Scout project workbooks and will soon begin the evaluation process.
 
There will be a selection of one project winner from each district.  One of these district projects will be selected and the council winner.  The winner is given a $1000 scholarship and will be forwarded to our area headquarters for area competition. 
 
In addition, each of the district winners and overall winner will be invited to the council Eagle banquet in which they will be presented on stage.
 
If any of our Eagle Scouts are interested, please deliver / send your Eagle project workbook to the Denver council office.

What’s new for 2021

Posted on Dec 3 2020 - 10:02pm

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) will become a merit badgeon January 1!  In fact, effective May 1, it will become the 14threquired merit badge for the rank of Eagle (increasing from 13).  If earned prior to May, it will be an “elective” merit badge; however, after April 30, it becomes mandatory to earn the rank. It is also my understanding that no merit badge pamphlet is planned for DEI, but rather, this merit badge will be done entirely on-line.

The ranks of Scout, Tenderfoot, Second and First Class will also have a component tied to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion.  New DEI requirements for each of the above ranks will go into effect on May 1 as well.  These new rank requirements will be communicated in January and may be worked on; however, they will not be added or be able to be recorded in Scout Book until May 1.

Eighteen merit badges too are changing next year.  Approximately, six have been totally revised, while another dozen will contain wordsmithing or minor revisions to their requirements.

Finally, Scouting BSA has historically “grandfathered” Scouts who are partially through a rank to allow them to finish; however, it is my understanding that this will not be the case for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion.   Therefore, unless the only requirement remaining is a Board of Review by April 30, 2021, the Scout will need to complete the DEI rank requirements or DEI merit badge respectfully to advance.
