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!

Troop 199 Skiers,

We have made plans for the overnight Ski Trip in March but need your Registration Fee to reserve the Hostel!!!

Details on the trip are below so head to the Online Payments tab on the Troop website's left-hand menu directly under Home.  Check the attending Scout, and ASM Parent and hit Add to Cart. Next, go to the View Cart tab that will appear in the left-hand User section of the Main Page. Here is where the PayPal payment will be made. Easy but we need action quickly. When you pay through PayPal you will be liable for the $75 cost of the trip assuming we reach the 15- person minimum. Non-Refundable.

 

Details are Shawnee Mountain on March 14th through the 15th with the Saturday being a 3 p.m. check-in at our Hostel Lodge. Lift tickets are from 3 to 9 p.m. on Saturday and 8 a. m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday. Our Lodge fits approximately 50 people and is NOT roughing it. 2 bathrooms with showers!! The cost of the lodge and lift tickets for both days is $75 which doesn’t include food. (This will be figured out later)

Please keep in mind that due to snow conditions, the Shawnee season may close early or have limited trails open by this time in March. Reduced Scout prices on equipment rentals will be available and we should be available to schedule some Tubing Time for non-skiers!

Please reach out to SIC Patykula and AIC Patykula with any questions.  Thanks, and look to see you on the slopes!!!

Troop 199 Red and White

Dear Troop 199,

We will be hosting the annual Red & White Banquet on Sunday, March 1st.  This is our time to celebrate the leaders and parents who volunteer to make Scouting fantastic as well as the many accomplishments of our scouts. We are excited to shake things up a bit this year!

 

What’s new?

 

We will meet at the Zion Lutheran Church at 1:00 for the ceremony portion of the event. We will then head over to the CEB for light refreshments and snacks. You should plan for an hour at the church.

 

We will gather on the altar side of the great room at the CEB. The dividing wall will be up and the kitchen side occupied.

 

Please RSVP on the web site by 2/25 and indicate in the comments section if you cannot come back for refreshments.

 

Per Advancements Coordinator Mrs. Quandt, the last date to submit Merit Badge requests and advancements is Weds., Feb. 19th.

 

Thank you and looking forward to seeing all Troop 199 Families at this great event!

2020 Summer Camp Decision

Posted by webmastertl on Feb 5 2020 - 5:46pm

Hello Troop 199, 

 
After evaluating several camps for summer camp 2020, the two top options being presented for a Troop vote are Camp Winnebago in Rockaway and Camp Nobebosco (North Bergen BoScouts) in Blairstown. 
 
Please review the webpages and guides at the links below and email your vote for the camp that you prefer to SPL Thomas by Wednesday, February 5th. Please submit one vote for each Scout planning to attend camp. 
 
Troop 199 summer camp will be held the week of July 26 - August 1 to avoid conflicts with the Sea Base trip, the Pottersville Antique Show, and the August vacation period. 
 
Both camps below are Nationally Accredited, meeting all BSA safety and proficiency requirements, with similar merit badge programs and activities, similar size, and similar cost ($415 early - $460 after 4/15).
