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.

PARENTS: Tuesday night meeting.

Posted on Sep 15 2018 - 9:09pm

The strength of our troop depends on active parents. Were you drawn to Troop 373 because of the various camping trips we do? Maybe it was the rock climbing and ice climbing day trips we take? Or maybe it was the variety of summer camps and high adventure trips we plan? ALL of these terrific activities are dependent on active adults. Many of our active parents have scouts who will be attaining their Eagle scout rank and/or turning 18 soon. These parents will likely "retire" from scouts in the next 12-18 months. New parents are needed to step in and begin leading these activities. Your commitment can be as easy as leading one camping trip a year. Or maybe you like shooting sports? You can become the parent who leads a shooting sports weekend. Come find out more at the Assistant Scout Master (ASM) meeting this Tuesday at 7pm at Newton Middle School. See where you might fit in an activity or two into your schedule and be part of the village that helps raise our amazing boys.

FAMILY SCOUTING: What you need to know Part 2

Posted on Aug 21 2018 - 8:21pm

This is the second in a continuing series to educate our troop about the new family scouting option that BSA is implementing this coming February. We ask all parents to learn about the option so that, as a troop, we can make some important decisions this fall.

QUESTION: Will Troop 373 be co-ed?

ANSWER: No. Scouts will continue to be a single gender program. 

QUESTION: Then why am I hearing that girls can join scouts?

ANSWER: Girls will form their own "girl only" troop.  Click here for a :90 video. The nuances come with the governing structure. There are two options for governing structures:

     Option A: This is called the "Separate Troop" option. Girls find their own organization to charter their troop, form their own troop, develop their own troop committee, and simply find a boy scout troop to partner with. The PLC leaders of the girl and the boy troops may decide to coordinate some, many or all activities and meetings together. It is the hope of BSA that the established boy troops will help mentor and lead the girl troops as they are getting started.

     Option B: This is called the "Linked Troop" option. A girl troop finds a boy troop whose chartering organization is willing to sponsor the girl troop as well. The two troops then decide if they want to have a single troop committee or separate. As in option A, the PLC leaders of the two troops may decide to coordinate some, many or all activities and meetings together.

QUESTION: Will there be girl Scouts BSA at Troop 373 meetings?

ANSWER: Maybe. If our troop decides to partner with (or help establish) a girls troop, then the scout and adult leadership would need to decide if they want to coordinate meetings. If they decide to coordinate meetings, then the opening and closing parts of the meeting would be co-ed but the bulk of the meeting should be run separately. 

QUESTION: What does the leadership of the Girl troop look like? 

ANSWER: Girl troops must have their own Scoutmaster. As is currently in Troop 373, adult leaders can be male or female. However, in a girls troop there must be at least one female leader.
