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!

Hello Scouts,

 
I hope that you and your families are well. 
 
 
Summer Program - We are looking into possible camping/hiking options as a substitute for summer camp. Details will be provided as soon as something comes together. 
 
Advancements - Please email me or an ASM to schedule time for a virtual sign off when your parent is available to join us. Ensure that you are prepared to demonstrate the knowledge or skill. Also, I encourage Scouts to register for any BSA accredited on-line merit badge program being held this summer. Examples below from Camp Nobebosco and Washington’s Crossing Council.

Summer Camp Early Bird Fee Due Wednesday

Posted by webmastertl on Apr 29 2020 - 9:47am
Dear Scouts and families,
 
We certainly hope that you are all staying healthy and managing well during this time of continued sheltering in place.
 
We know that it is very difficult to make plans for the summer right now, and we so appreciate those of you who have been in touch with us to let us know what you are thinking about camp. We so far have 6 scouts who have expressed an interest in summer camp. We would love to hear from all of you, however -- both to let us know how you're doing being at home and to let us know whether you are currently thinking "yes, no, or maybe" about camp attendance.
 
The Early Bird pricing ($415 paid in full) for camp ends this Friday, May 1. They have extended the refund period to mid-June so any payment made now is eligible for a "no questions asked" refund by June 15. After May 1, you can still decide to attend camp, but you will pay the standard fee of $460. 
 
Our treasurer, Anne Marie will make a troop payment for anyone who wants to take advantage of the early bird discount. I just need to hear from you as soon as possible and no later than this Wednesday, April, 29. You can then submit a check (to Anne Marie) for $415 made out to Troop 199.
 
We know the situation is very fluid and subject to change, but here FYI is the latest update from Camp Nobebosco regarding their camp plans: 
Please stay healthy, and take good care!
