Welcome to Oldwick Troop 199

BSA Troop 199 meets Mondays (7:30 pm to 9:00 pm) at the Christian Education Building (CEB) of our sponsor, the Zion Lutheran Church, 18 Miller Lane in Oldwick, New Jersey. On some occasions, we schedule our meetings at Fairmount North Park (north of the 512/517 intersection, behind the cemetery and sport fields).

We schedule our Troop meetings in conjunction with the calendar used by Old Turnpike School in Tewksbury. When a school holiday falls on a Monday, we do not have a Troop meeting on that day. Troop meetings will still be held on planned school half-days. In the event of an emergency early dismissal or school cancellation for inclement weather, the Troop meeting is canceled.
We have an active Troop and we enjoy campouts, hikes, high adventure challenges, summer camp, service projects, and many other fun outings.

If you have any questions about our troop, please contact our Scoutmaster.

If you need help with our website, please contact our Webmaster.

Come join us at our next Troop Meeting!

New Merit Badge and BOR Procedures

Posted by webmastertl on Oct 16 2019 - 9:39pm

Dear Scouts,


My name is Jennifer Quandt and I have recently taken over the position of Advancement Coordinator from Mrs. Gagen.  To give you a little background on myself, I have worked in the field of Human Resources for 25+ years.  I have lived in Tewksbury for the last seven years.  My son Drew is a first-year Boy Scout.  I have been working behind the scenes along with my husband Andrew Patykula who has held several positions while Drew was in Cub Scouts. 


Merit Badges

A cooler will be left on the side of my garage.  Inside will be another plastic container to ensure materials won’t get wet. All merit badge cards need to be dropped off at least one week prior to the Court of Honor (COH) to process. 


Board of Reviews

In preparation for the Board of Review (BOR) you will need to call me at minimum two weeks in advance of the Court of Honor (COH) date, if not before when you have completed your Scoutmaster Conference, so that I can schedule the meeting. When you call to schedule your meeting, you will need to provide the following information:

  1. Your full name
  2. Reason for the call – rank just completed
  3. Call back phone number

Once I have received your request, I will then confirm your date and time for the Board of Review.  As a reminder, all sign offs in your Scout Handbook need to be completed and brought with you to the Board of Review. 


The next Court of Honor is scheduled for Monday, October 21st.


Thank you.

Dear Scouts, ASMs and Leaders:

Next week at the Round Table I will be presenting The Adventure Plan (TAP) process.
As some of us are planning High Adventure(HA) for the summer of 2020 and  beyond, it would be beneficial for the participants to leverage TAP
TAP can be found at  https://bsatap.org/  
TAP is a standard BSA tool that includes a 52 step guide to planning a safe, effective and enjoyable HA event.
Attached is a power-point summarizing the process in case you would like a hard copy for further planning sessions.

New Sign Up Policy

Posted by webmastertl on Sep 21 2018 - 10:38pm


For the coming 2018 - 2019 Scout Year there is a new sign up policy in effect regarding all scouting events.  Regardless of whether you are attending a trip or not, you must say so on the website. When you click on an event on the website, there is the option to either register or send regrets. If you do not plan to attend an event, instead of just not signing up, you MUST send regrets on the website.

This is common courtesy and will greatly reduce the stress and confusion for organizers in planning trips and events. For anyone that has not planned a trip or event, it is so hard to plan when people sign up or drop out last minute or do not indicate their plans at all, so there will be a deadline on each event and each person in the troop must have said either way on the website. As with the planning meeting, let me know if you have questions about this new policy!
