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!

AT Hike Section 1 (Repeat) 6/25-6/26

Posted by webmastermn on May 31 2016 - 8:33am


On Saturday June 25 to Sunday June 26 we are having an Application Trail hike. We would like to hike the first section that the troop hiked back in 2014. This will be a good opportunity for the younger scouts to hike the section that they missed, and a great activity. The Philmont crew is expected to join us as well.

We are planning to start at Dunnfield Creek trail head, and end at Millbrook Road (the same as last time the troop did this hike.) It will be an overnight hike, Our campsite has not been determined yet. Please sign up on the website, by clicking here, if you are interested.

Miles for Matheny - Helping to enhance the quality of life for people with disabilities 

We are proud to participate in the 19th annual Miles for Matheny benefiting Matheny, a special hospital and educational center for children and adults with medically complex developmental disabilities and a comprehensive outpatient center meeting the health care needs of people with all types of disabilities in the community. It’s a fabulous event, one our troop has supported multiple times over the years.

 Class B uniform, shorts permitted

 Matheny has requested our assistance in two ways. (This is subject to CHANGE based on their needs so please try to be as flexible as possible, although we are told this revision is final.)

1)  Our troop is scheduled from 9:30am to 11:30am (previously 8am-11am) to help with bus unloading and directing participants to activities.

2)   From 11:45am to 1:45pm (previously 12pm-3pm) we will form a cheering section and then join in the wheelchair walk.

The road opens back up at 2pm, at which time the event should conclude. There is no need to stay past this time.

There are 2 registration events: 9:30am-11:30am (Sign-up here) and 11:45am-1:45pm (Sign-up here). Please register for one or both… They could use all the volunteers we can send.

PLEASE NOTE: It is required for all young scouts to attend this event with a parent. Many of the children and adults currently at Matheny, in addition to their primary diagnoses, have a long list of associated clinical conditions such as vision and hearing deficits, seizure disorders, mental retardation and dysphagia, with resulting aspiration problems. While the great majority of Matheny patients have cerebral palsy as their primary diagnoses, Matheny also has patients with spina bifida, Lesch-Nyhan Disease (LND) and a wide range of uncommon conditions including Rett syndrome, Angelman syndrome, Cornelia De Lange syndrome, Wolf-Hirshorn syndrome and 4Q Deletion syndrome. Lesch-Nyhan Disease is a rare x-linked recessive disorder associated with cognitive impairment, high levels of uric acid in the blood, kidney involvement and the hallmark symptom — severe and involuntary self-injurious behaviors.

Below is some information about the event itself and the school. For more information, visit their website at http://www.matheny.org/
