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!

February 28th- First meeting with new scouts!!!

March 7th- Career Night

ALL Adults must take new YPT (Youth Protection Training) by 3/31/18

Posted by admin on Feb 21 2018 - 9:22pm

*** ACTION REQUIRED ***

BSA has recently updated and revised its Youth Protection Training. Despite the fact that our Troop is currently 100% trained in Youth Protection (great job -- see note from our Hunterdon Arrowhead District Training Coordinator below), we all need to retake the NEW Youth Protection Training course, which includes updated sections on bullying, harassment, and female youth scout participation. The YPT course can be accessed through your account on my.scouting.org. It looks the same, but has new content once you get into the program.

We are asking ALL adults (ASMs, Committee Members, & Parents) to take the new training, even if you have recently completed the previous version. I challenge ALL adults in the troop to complete the new training within the next 40 days or sooner ( 3/31/18 deadline). 

Once completed, please print out the certification, pdf it and email it to our Troop 199 Training Coordinator Laura Bartels (lbartels@ipsmailbox.com). If you cannot pdf, please print and hand deliver it to her.

Finally, there are some additional training opportunities coming up for specific Troop positions. If you need any training, please also look at the message below from Chris Neighbor, our HAD Training Coordinator. 

Oldwick Fire Company/Troop 199 Pancake Breakfast- THIS SUNDAY with Prep Night THIS FRIDAY! Looking for all scouts to sign-up!

Posted by admin on Feb 21 2018 - 9:21pm

Please come help at the pancake breakfast at the Oldwick Fire Company this upcoming weekend. This is one of our major fundraisers for the year and is also a much appreciated service project for the OFC. The OFC not only supports our community but also actively supports our Troop throughout the year.  Please help us with a good showing at this event benefiting our local fire company and good Troop friend.  

Prep night is Friday February 23 from 6-8 p.m. Some scouts will be attending the cub scout Blue and Gold dinner that evening, but anyone who is not should come help out. At the prep night we will be making the sausages for the breakfast (forming patties -- no dangerous equipment will be involved). 

The breakfast is Sunday the 25th starting at 7 a.m. in the morning until noon.  You will either be at the buffet line, washing dishes, busing tables/ serving, or taking money up front.

 So, please sign up on the website as soon as possible. If you cannot attend both events for the entire time, please indicate when you can come in the notes section part of registration. Everyone is expected to help in some way. 

 Thank you.

YIS,

Mark your Calendars: Summer Camp is scheduled at Resica Falls the week of July 15-21!

 Dear Troop 199,
 
With this warm weather I figured it was the perfect time to think about summer!  This year, Troop 199 will be attending Resica Falls Boy Scout Summer Camp in the Pocono Mountains, the week of July 15 - July 21, 2018.   Mark your calendars! The price is $445 for the week.
 
This is a 4000 + acre Scout Reservation which offers miles of mountain trails, pristine streams and waterfalls with top notch activities and merit badge opportunities galore.
 
I would love it if you would go to their website at the following link...  https://resicafalls.org/important-documents
 
Print out the program guide (easier if you do yourself, but will have copies made if you need me to), Parental Release Form and any Health forms required. Start a file so that we can have it all in one place. I will be holding a meeting soon to go over the information together. 
  
If you have any immediate questions, please contact me at moreland21@gmail.com  You can also visit the Resica Falls website at http://colbsa.org/resica-falls-scout-reservation/

Consider Supporting the Oldwick Fire Company at their 80th Anniversary Gala on 3/24

Posted by admin on Feb 20 2018 - 11:40am

Our friends at the Oldwick Volunteer Fire Company asked if we would forward this invitation to their 80th Anniversary Gala, which is coming up on March 24.  The OFC is an active supporter of Troop 199, so if this looks like it would be a fun night out for your family, please consider helping them celebrate their big night! 

As always, thank you to the OFC for providing us with a great fundraising opportunity (the upcoming annual Pancake Breakfast) as well as being so generous in providing us with back up meeting and activity space. Congratulations on 80 admirable years serving our community!

Flyer is also attached (so you can see more clearly)
