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 152 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.

Flower Sales - Final Week!

Posted on Apr 24 2017 - 9:26pm

How are your flower sales going? This is the final week of sales!!! This is our only fundraiser of the year and it supports all that we do - e.g. rental of Newton Middle School for our meetings, camping supplies, leadership training for scouts and adults. EVERY scout is asked to sell at least $250 of flowers.

Canvas neighbors and friends. It's hard to say know to a young man you know standing in his uniform at your door :)  Mom and Dad - take the brochure to work and pass it around. If you belong to a youth group, take it there and talk to some of the parents. Maybe mom or dad is active on social media and you can create a post on their account as a way to reach out to friends.

All orders are due next Tuesday, May 2nd. Turn in those order forms to Mrs. Jha by mail, or drop them off at her house at 6813 S. Jasmine Ct.  Centennial, CO 80112.  You can also turn forms at tomorrow night’s chili cookoff to Mrs. Jha, Mrs. Steinberg or Mrs. Schmahl.

Sand Dunes Campout - Adult Leader needed ASAP

Posted on Apr 20 2017 - 11:11am

Our annual trip to Great Sand Dunes National Park is just around the corner - May 5-7. This is one of the camping trips that the boys always love to go on! This year we are in need of a parent to be the Adult in Charge. Scout Alex Downing has volunteered to be the Senior Patrol Leader for the trip, but the trip can't happen without an adult in charge. If your son crossed over in the last three years, consider being the adult in charge and contact Scoutmaster Darrin Mariska as soon as possible.

Medical Forms!

All scouts participating in any day or weekend campout (72 hours or less) must complete Parts A and B of the medical forms. Please note that Part B requires additional signatures. If your scout regularly takes medications, or over-the-counter medications, Part B must be signed by you and your physician. Also attach a copy of your scout’s insurance medical card. In addition, the BSA Immunization Form must be completed and attached.

Week camps require Part C and must be completed and signed by your physician. Summer camp is just around the corner, so if you haven't scheduled your scout’s annual exam, now is the time to do so. Don’t forget to take Part C with you for your doctor to complete.

Click here for forms. Diane Phillips is our Health and Safety Officer. Please get forms into her asap. She can also answer any questions  you have. You can find her information in the troop roster link on the left side of this page.

Ft. Logan Memorial Day Flags

Posted on Apr 13 2017 - 8:58am

Every Memorial Day the Fort Logan National Cemetery holds a ceremony honoring the members of our military who have sacrificed their lives for the good for of the country. Fort Logan current has over 122,000 interments in the 214 acre cemetery that was established in 1887.  Each year, Coloradans come from all over the state to pay visits to the graves of the fallen and reflect on their lives. The Monday Ceremony has a tradition that includes a 21-gun salute and moments of silence, with the VFW Band. On Saturday, over 100,000 Flags will be placed in the cemetery by the Boy Scouts and other volunteers. The scene is a peaceful and powerful one and we recommend everyone take a moment to participate. (Please use sign up to indicate if you are coming).

This Memorial Day, before you start barbequing and playing outdoor games, take a moment to honor the fallen men and women who have fought for us, so we can feel safe and enjoy our freedom with our families in our backyards this weekend. If you can’t make it to Fort Logan for the ceremony, then spend time with your family reflecting on the sacrifices made.

Sat May 27th – 7:30am to 10:30am (we will meet at the Welcome Center at 7:45am) – Denver Area Boy Scouts will be joining other groups and help place over 100,000 flags around the cemetery.  We will either meet at the Public Information Center for instructions at 7:45am or at Sections 44 & 46, and will be complete in around 2 - 2½ hours.  Please allow time for parking along the roadway.  As in the past, we want to show respect and salute each grave we place flags on, rather than race through.  Please contact Mr. Rau or Mr. Boase if you have any questions, and signup on the Troop Website so we can look out for you.  If you have family or friends interned at Fort Logan, we can visit their grave as a Troop and place one of our own flags.  We may be able to get our own assigned area (trying to get Section 44 & 46 like we had last year).  We will e-mail out parking instructions and meeting locations the week before the event.

New Parent Tip 4/9/17

Posted on Apr 9 2017 - 7:45am

If your scout attended the Cherry Creek Campout this weekend, take a few minutes to go over what he accomplished. Look through the back of the book to see if there are any signatures on the advancement pages. Talk through the kinds of things that he did. Sometimes new scouts forget to get things signed off. For example, did your scout participate in the service project? (I believe some of the boys helped with creating a new sand volleyball court). Are those hours recorded in his service log? If he missed having some things signed off, he can always get them signed off at this week's meeting by an older scout (Star, Life or Eage) or one of the Assistant Scout Masters who was at the campout.
