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!

Eagle Scout Work Day

Posted by webmastertl on May 18 2018 - 9:57pm

Hi everybody,

Due to expected poor weather for this weekend as well, the Eagle Scout project work days for Life Camp have again been rescheduled. Please come help Saturday and Sunday, June 2 and 3 from 12 - 5. The project is refurbishing a small pavilion at the Life camp. We will be putting new screens and doors as well as painting the inside of the structure. All scouts attending should bring work gloves if they have them, and clothes they are not afraid to get dirty for painting. Of course, you do not have to stay the whole time nor do you have to come at the start. Also, we will have pizza at 2 for all those helping out. Any and all help is appreciated.

Thank you 

Califon Memorial Day Parade

Posted by webmastertl on May 16 2018 - 6:57pm


Once again, we have been invited to march in the Califon Memorial Day Parade. The parade is on Memorial Day, Monday, May 28th. It officially starts at 11:00 AM for any parents who would like to come and watch, but scouts must be there for 10:15 dressed in CLASS A. We will meet at the Califon School, located on School Street. We will be in the parking lot, where parents can drop Scouts off. After the parade, there will be a Memorial Service at noon, next to the Califon Veterans Memorial. The ceremony will end with a 21-Gun Salute. The Califon Fire Company will have food and drinks available for purchase. In addition to this, the Kona Ice Truck will be at the end of the parade, so come prepared with money if you would like to purchase something. Please sign up online by clicking here. We need as many scouts as possible to help represent the troop. The parade is always a fun experience, so I encourage everyone, scouts, and adults, to sign-up! Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. Thank you!

Capital Printing Trip

Posted by webmastertl on May 16 2018 - 6:56pm

Hello Scouts,

We have a new date for the Capital Printing Headquarters trip!!
It has been rescheduled for June 8th. The tour will start at 4:30 pm and should last about an hour. Afterward, pizza will be provided by our hosts.
It is a great experience (my Dad & I were floored) that every scout should experience. You will get to see up close several different printing machines (some of which are bigger than you can imagine) and a host of other impressive machinery. At the end, you will be left with a good insight into the complex world of printing.

We will announce the meeting time and place when the transportation logistics have been established.
