Welcome to Oldwick Troop 199

BSA Troop 199 meets Mondays (7:30 pm to 8:30 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!

ALL ADULTS ARE MOST DEFINITELY INVITED TO ATTEND AS WELL.   ALL Adult Leaders should attend one of these two meetings.  Please let me know which session you will attend.

BACKGROUND:  Unfortunately the BSA has come under increased scrutiny due to tragic events involving scouts that have occurred over the past year.  
Unprepared scouts and their families have suffered greatly based on the news coverage.
We as leaders must do whatever we can to prevent any and all safety incidents and prepare our scouts for enjoyable outside adventures.

Troop 199 Registration Info for ReCharter 2017-18: PLEASE READ

Posted by webmastermn on Oct 11 2017 - 10:32pm

Welcome Back to the 2017/18 Scouting year in Troop 199!   We are beginning the Recharter Process for our Troop. Rechartering is the process by which the Troop officially registers all Scouts and Adult Leaders with the BSA, insuring that all the necessary documentation and monies have been collected.

Please note, we will be handling this process a bit differently than in past years. Here is how it will work:

  1. You will need to come in person to the CEB on either Monday, Oct. 23 or Oct. 30 at 7:30pm to re-register your scout(s), being sure to bring the following with you:

Here are some ASM Training Opportunities - NEW INFO! - Consider being an ASM to support your son's Troop!

Posted by webmastermn on Sep 30 2017 - 10:44pm

To be considered a "trained" ASM, all you have to do is take 2 courses, in addition to Youth Protection Training:  

    - SM/ASM Specific Training - 1 morning or evening, in the classroom.  The course will provide Scoutmasters with the basic information and tools they need to lead successful Boy Scout troops.  

    - Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills (IOLS) - 1 1/2 days which includes an Overnight Camping Experience.  Working as patrols, this hands-on course provides adult leaders the practical outdoor skills they need to lead Scouts in the out-of-doors. Upon completion, leaders should feel comfortable teaching Scouts the basic skills required to obtain the First Class rank.

 ** Troop 199 will reimburse you the cost of attending both of these upon completion!  (Simply present completion certificate and payment receipt to our Troop Treasurer.) **
