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 has another opportunity to help out the Starfish Food Pantry this holiday season. In case you were unaware, the Starfish Pantry is located within the Our Lady Of Lourdes Church and services needy families in our immediate area. They are NOT related to the monthly dinner held at the church – they provide food and staples to a select group of families in need.

Please support the Veteran's Wish List (bring to 12/5, 12/12 or 12/19 Troop Meeting)

Posted by admin on Dec 3 2016 - 2:26pm
In one of the recent meetings, we were all given wish lists for the Veterans Haven North. With the information provided, we will be having a collection at the meeting on the 19th. Please feel free to donate any of the items on the list, but stay in your price range.  See attached file or below for the list of items being requested.

Successful Summer Camp - Input Requested on Week for Next Year

Posted by webmastermn on Aug 10 2016 - 8:54pm

Dear Scouts and Parents

Wanted to send out a note as a follow-up to Ockanickon Summer Camp.  First, I want to thank all involved in making camp happen this year:  Mrs Colitti and Mrs Newell, in particular, for all their coordination, meetings, interfacing with Ockanickon, etc.

The numbers are in:

- 18 scouts

- 75 merit badges completed, 25 of them Eagle rank badges

- That's 33% of earned badges were Eagle--they are the most difficult and likewise, very worthwhile!

-  An average of 4.2 merit badges per scout--impressive!

- Many boys earned 5 or 6 badges--ambitious!

- We had 20 parents, ASMs, and other volunteers from the troop at the camp during different shifts during the week. Thanks to our drivers, as well, and to Mr. Melick and Mr. Cooley for pulling the trailer.

Other highlights:

- No major trips to the nurse

- Great weather except one intense thunderstorm on Monday

- Many Hammock sleepers

- No one went hungry

The scouts took an informal vote on where to go to camp next year.  Might be too close to call until the next Planning Meeting (by-the-way:  Monday, August 29 - CEB - 7pm - Class B.  Note from Eben O. forthcoming).

Sentiment seems to be Resica and Ockanickon alternating each year.  

I did want to take an informal survey.  Is the 3rd week of July a good week for most to attend camp?  Should we consider other weeks instead?.  Feel free to send me back an email with your thoughts.

Yea for our Troop!
