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 180 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.

2022 Klondree

Posted on Jan 14 2022 - 8:49pm

The Klonderee is a fun winter campout that allows troops to compete against each other in fun scouting related events. It is a two night campout at Golden Gate State Park. We cook our own food and sometimes we camp in the snow. It is always a fun time and ordinarily it will snow or there will already be snow on the ground. More information to come, but sign up if you’re interested. 

Troop Montana 2022 Road Trip / Summer Camp

Posted on Jan 8 2022 - 3:56pm

Our Troop is currently planning a July 2022 Road Trip and Summer Camp to the Scouts BSA Camp at the K-M (K Bar M) Scout Ranch located near Hilger, Montana. 

In addition to the 1 week long Scout Camp session, we will be adding on additional days to travel and sightsee either before or after the camp session.  Since this camp location is approx 700 miles from Centennial, CO, we will be allowing 2 travel days minimum back and forth.  A possible side trip could include Yellowstone National Park, Grand Tetons, Horseback Riding, River Rafting, etc (to be determined by the Scouts in their planning meetings).

 

The approx dates for the entire trip (depending on the Scouts final vote) are:

                Option #1            Sightseeing Before          Wed July 6th thru Sun July 17th     OR

                Option #2            Sightseeing After             Fri July 8th thru Wed July 20th

If you are interested (both for Scouts alone and with Parents), please signup on the Troop Website before Jan 10th to gauge interest to determine if we have enough people to make this trip happen.  We don’t want to cancel this trip if there is not enough interest.  You will not be bound by this initial signup.  Final down payment and commitment will not be required until Mar 2022.

 Please contact Mr. Rau if you have any questions about this trip.

Copper Mountain Ski Trip

Posted on Dec 4 2021 - 9:44pm

Our 27th annual ski trip to Copper Mountain!

NOTE - this trip is currently not 100% confirmed with Copper Mountain.  They are keeping watch on COVID cases and will only be able to confirm sometime in January if the trip can go ahead as planned.  We are optimistic we will be able to re-start our annual ski-trip tradition at Copper, so opening registration for anyone that would like to attend.

Scouts will gather at Newton Middle School early on Saturday, February 26 and car-pool to Copper Mountain. We'll drop our overnight packs at the ski patrol headquarters at the top of the mountain and spend the day skiing and riding. On Saturday night, Scouts and parent chaperones will stay in the ski patrol headquarters at the top of the mountain and ski down before lifts open on Sunday the 27th. Fingers crossed for fresh powder - we have had this several times in the past few years!

We are the only scout troop in Colorado that is allowed to stay in the ski patrol headquarters. Scouts will be asked to bring a few dollars and snacks for the ski patrol and to leave the hut cleaner than we found it.

Mr Langley-Hawthorne is the adult in-charge of the trip, assisted by My Hiller.   We need an SPL for this trip - contact Mr Langley-Hawthorne if you are interested.

Scouts can earn the Snow Sports merit badge if you study the Snow Sports reading material before the trip.

Shakedown date to be confirmed.

Anyone who wants to stay in the ski patrol lodge overnight needs to be able to ski or snowboard BLUE runs and ski down the mountain in the morning with a back pack holding their overnight gear.  A maximum of 20 people can stay in the hut overnight.

If you do not want to stay in the ski patrol hut overnight, you are still welcome to come up for the day with the troop (but would need to have arrangements for transportation home when the lifts close).

Departure: Saturday, February 26, from Newton Middle School.  Meet at Newton at 5:15 am.

Return: Sunday, February 27 arriving Newton around 11:00 am.

Please see more details under Event Registration.
