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.

2019 World Jamboree

Posted on Aug 6 2017 - 11:15am

2019 World Jamboree

A couple of weeks ago the 2017 National Boy Scout Jamboree concluded. Four youth (Sean Brandel, Rory O’Donnell, Ryan Phillips and Ethan Warrick) and two adults (Rick Byrd and David Short) represented Troop 373 either as participants or staff members. Now the countdown to the 2019 World Scout Jamboree has begun!

The 24th World Scout Jamboree will be held at the BSA’s new permanent Jamboree home: the Summit Bechtel Reserve (SBR) in West Virginia. The World Jamboree will be co-hosted by three Scout organizations: the Boy Scouts of America, Scouts Canada and Asociación de Scouts de México.

This is a once-in-a-generation event. The 2019 World Scout Jamboree will be the first held in North America in 36 years (Alberta, Canada – 1983) and the first held in the United States in 52 years (Idaho – 1967).

Some 50,000 Scouts and Scouters from over 160 different countries are expected to attend. The World Jamboree is scheduled for July 22 to August 2, 2019. Scouts and Scouters will meet people from around the world while enjoying SBR’s world-class adventure offerings.

Scouts/Scouters from the United States are limited to only 10,000. A total of 7,200 participants from 180 units. Each 40-person unit will have four adult leaders and 36 youth. Another 2,700 for the International Service Team (IST – staff), and 100 on the Contingent Management Team.

Youth eligibility: Ages 14 to 17 by the first day of the Jamboree. This date is set by the World Scout Jamboree hosts, not the U.S. contingent leadership. That means your birthday has to fall between July 22, 2001, and July 21, 2005. (Born before July 22, 2001? Try to attend as an adult or IST member.)

Adult eligibility: Like for National Jamborees, prospective World Scout Jamboree leaders will fill out an application. Approval and a final decision will from the U.S. contingent leadership.
