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 Troop Families, 

 
To assist with community and global efforts to slow COVID-19 transmission, we are suspending all Troop activity during school closure. 
 
Note that your Troop may be asked to help with community functions such as food distribution in the upcoming weeks. Be Prepared. 
 
To maintain forward momentum with advancement, we will begin virtual sign-offs for specific requirements of each rank. SPL Thomas Anderson will announce details in a few days. 
 
As always, call or send me any questions. For Scouts with questions, please include your parent or an ASM when sending emails. Thank you. 
 

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!

Troop 199,

 
I want to thank Logan B for being yesterday's MC, the organizing team, Troop leadership, Scouts and families for participating- Great Red & White.
 
As announced yesterday, we have started our FOS campaign for 2020. 
 
Your support helps the Council deliver a Best-in-Class scouting experience to our youths. 
 
Some highlights:
  • It costs about $175 per scout per year for Council to operate.
  • Depending on what you can support, you may be able to gain discounts at the Scout Shop
  • If the Troop hits our goal(deadline is June 8th)
    • We will be able to save 10% at the scout shop
    • Free rank advancements
    • 1 free weekend at Ockanickon 
    • 10% discount on summer camp fees at Ockanickon 
  • Your company may participate in a matching program
I will leave a number of donation packets in the Troop CEB mailbox. Once completed you can mail directly to Council or give to me to forward.
 
Any questions please let me know.
