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!

Additional Stream Clean Up Information

Posted by webmastertl on Mar 23 2019 - 10:20pm

Dear All,

As you all know, we will be participating in the Raritan Headwaters Stream Clean Up on Saturday, April 13th, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. 

I have chosen Rockaway Creek as our site for this year and I hope you will all join. Siblings and parents are welcome. We will meet at the Whittemore Wildlife Sanctuary parking lot on at the corner of Rockaway Road and Route 523. Depending on how many people sign up, we will break into groups and get dropped off upstream. We will clean both sides of the Rockaway Creek (to whatever extent possible) and meet back up in the parking lot for a picnic lunch at 12. (Sandwiches will be provided) We will leave our garbage bags there in the parking lot and they will be picked up (and analyzed) by the Headwater team. Please RSVP for you and your family on our website. 

Additionally, Joel and I will be volunteering on March 25, 26 & 27 from 3 to 5 p.m. at the Raritan Headwater Association headquarters on Larger Cross Road in Bedminster to help prepare the stream clean up boxes (gloves, safety vests, bags, etc) for the dozens of sites around our district. They would like more help. If you’d like to join us, please let me know. 

Raritan Headwaters Stream Cleanup Conservation Project

Posted by webmastertl on Mar 23 2019 - 10:19pm

Dear Troop 199 families, 

We have an exciting service opportunity coming up! On April 13th from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., we will be working with Raritan Headwaters to clean a local stream. This project is very important as stream quality can have a huge impact on water quality in the Raritan River; we have the chance to make a big difference! Please sign up on the web site as soon as possible so that we can have a headcount and order t-shirts. The day of it is recommended to wear boots and long pants to stay warm and dry. More information about what to bring and wear as well as the specific location will be given at upcoming meetings. This does count as conservation service work. 

 
Also just a quick reminder that we will be packing meals for Feed My Starving Children at the CEB in Oldwick on March 30th from 2:30 p.m to 4:30 p.m., along with another shift to help clean up from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. You can sign up for one or both of the shifts. This event is also lots of fun and can help a lot of people in just 2 hours. Sign-ups are open on the website, we have 16 slots open per shift. 

Upcoming Troop 199 Service and Troop Events

Posted by webmastertl on Mar 9 2019 - 12:30pm

Hi Troop 199,

We have some upcoming service opportunities to share.

 

SAVE THE DATE – Feed My Starving Children 3/29 and 3/30

We will once again be helping with the Feed My Starving Children food truck at the CEB. The dates have been announced but the shifts have not yet been communicated.

Feed My Starving Children® is a non-profit Christian organization committed to feeding God’s children, hungry in body and spirit. The approach is simple: children and adults hand-pack meals specifically formulated for malnourished children, and these meals are shipped to our distribution partners.  We will be helping pack these meals and then maybe cleaning up.

Please sign up on the website.

 

Upcoming Events:

FMSC – 3/29 and 3/30

If you have any questions email or call one of us, contact information is below.
