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!

Dear Adult Leaders and Parents,

It's come to our attention that scouts are increasingly arriving late for Troop activities, especially the Monday night Troop meetings This is affecting our ability to start on time, run an effective meeting, and to end on time in order to get the boys back home for homework and bed. This has been discussed at several Troop meetings but we are still experiencing delays. 

We know life is busy, but promptness and courtesy are two qualities we like to encourage in our scouts. As parents, please do your best to help us teach them these qualities by getting them to the meetings on time. This means that, barring an unforeseen conflict, they are in the building, in their seats, and ready to go for the flag ceremony promptly at 7:30. That way, if we start on time, we can end on time.

Your understanding and cooperation is greatly appreciated by the volunteer leaders who run the meetings.

Let’s talk Summer Camp! 

This year, Troop 199 will be attending Resica Falls Boy Scout Summer Camp in the Pocono Mountains, the week of July 15 - July 21, 2018.   Mark your calendars!

The price is $395 for the week to paid to later than 5/7.  This is an outstanding price!  The Troop will be subsidizing the cost of the adults needed in camp!  

This is a 4000 + acre Scout Reservation which offers miles of mountain trails, pristine streams and waterfalls with top notch activities and merit badge opportunities galore.

*** May 7th is the deadline for registering/ paying for camp. However, March 15th begins online Merit Badge registration and we know that some classes fill fast!  The earlier you pay the earlier you can select your Merit Badge schedule.***

 <========All information and documents required for camp can be found on our troop website under Summer Camp 2018!

 If you plan on attending camp the first thing I need from you is to fill out the attached permission slip and write a check for $395 to Troop 199.

 If you have any immediate questions, please contact me at moreland21@gmail.com. You can also visit the Resica Falls website at http://colbsa.org/resica-falls-scout-reservation/

ALL Adults must take new YPT (Youth Protection Training) by 3/31/18

Posted by webmastermn on Feb 24 2018 - 8:10pm


BSA has recently updated and revised its Youth Protection Training. Despite the fact that our Troop is currently 100% trained in Youth Protection (great job -- see note from our Hunterdon Arrowhead District Training Coordinator below), we all need to retake the NEW Youth Protection Training course, which includes updated sections on bullying, harassment, and female youth scout participation. The YPT course can be accessed through your account on my.scouting.org. It looks the same, but has new content once you get into the program.

We are asking ALL adults (ASMs, Committee Members, & Parents) to take the new training, even if you have recently completed the previous version. I challenge ALL adults in the troop to complete the new training within the next 40 days or sooner ( 3/31/18 deadline). 

Once completed, please print out the certification, pdf it and email it to our Troop 199 Training Coordinator Laura Bartels (lbartels@ipsmailbox.com). If you cannot pdf, please print and hand deliver it to her.

Finally, there are some additional training opportunities coming up for specific Troop positions. If you need any training, please also look at the message below from Chris Neighbor, our HAD Training Coordinator.
