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.

Once the Cub Scouts have finished their launch, any older Scout can launch their own rockets up until 12:30 pm. If Scouts are new to the Troop, rocket kits and engines can be purchased at Hobby Lobby.  Please have them pre-built, and bring extra engines for multiple launches.

 Please bring your own masks and water bottles to the event.

Back to Scouting BBQ is Tuesday 8/11!

Posted on Aug 8 2020 - 11:37pm
SIGN UP DEADLINE IS TODAY 8/9.
 
Our annual Back to Scouting BBQ is a GO for this Tuesday 8/11! This year's BBQ will look a little different than in previous years. The BBQ is being held at DeKoevend Park Shelter B. This is the large shelter at the park. The troop will provide all food except drinks and condiments. Menu is Hamburgers, hot dogs, brats, potato salad, single serve chips and single serve ice cream. There won't be a buffet line as usual. Plates will be served by a small number of people wearing masks and gloves. Think of it like being served at an outdoor restaurant! 
 
There are 10 picnic tables at the shelter which isn't enough for everyone to be safely distanced so we encourage families to bring chairs and/or blankets to spread out on the grass.
Also - every family should bring their own drinks AND condiments. 
 
Arapahoe County allows for outdoor gatherings of up to 175 (we will be well under that number) and asks people to wear masks outdoors if you can't maintain a 6-foot distance to others outside your family unit.
 
Please sign up ASAP and indicate how many will be in your group so the troop can ensure enough food. We look forward to being together again (safely physically distanced).
