Welcome to Oldwick Troop 199

BSA Troop 199 meets Mondays (7:15 pm to 8:45 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) or at Christy Hoffman Park Pavilion. 

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!

Sea Base Information

Posted by webmastertl on Dec 17 2020 - 12:10am
Dear Troop, 

          Despite the uncertain times that we are currently living in there is an amazing trip planned for this summer (2021). Our troop will be going on a High Adventure Trip to Florida Sea Base. Florida Sea Base is one of four BSA High Adventure bases that create amazing week-long adventures. Florida Sea Base is located in the Florida Keys and operates 18 different adventures ranging from sailing to fishing and scuba diving. For 2021 our troop will be participating in the Out Island Adventure. This adventure gives a little bit of everything. The adventure starts with the troop (“crew”) paddling a Polynesian war canoe for more than 5 miles to a primitive barrier island, Big Munson Island, located in the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary providing a primitive camping experience and an epic adventure. Big Munson Island is an untouched, uninhabited island that is over 100 acres in size. Upon arrival at Big Munson Island, we will camp under a canopy of gumbo limbo trees, mangroves and lush vegetation for the week. Nature will surround the campsite including the Endangered Key deer, hermit crabs and the Key Baca raccoons. Each day has a different action-packed activity in store. The crew will kayak from the island and board a large vessel to go snorkeling in the Florida Barrier Reef, North America’s only living coral barrier reef, go shark fishing, paddle to Munson Rocks for a night snorkel, and explore the largest wilderness on Earth, the Ocean. To participate in this adventure you must be at least 13 years of age or older. I hope to see you all at Sea Base!
