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!

This Monday, December 22, 2014, is our last meeting before the New Year. So, as always, we will be holding our Annual Holiday Party during this meeting, along with Elections for a new SPL and new Patrol Leaders. So, to have a successful Holiday Party, some duties were assigned for food, drinks, etc. Here is the list:

  • Thunderbirds- Drinks
  • Raccoons- Forks, Knives, Plates, Napkins, Cups, etc. 
  • Flaming Wolverines- Deserts
  • Fighting Eagles- Snacks (Chips, Pretzels, etc.)
  • Prestige Worldwide + Splashing Narwals- Snacks, Deserts, Regular Food.

Now please keep in mind that this must feed around 40+ people. Please discuss who is bringing what amongst your patrols. 

Also, along with the Holiday Party we have the Gift Exchange. The Gift Exchange requires each scout attending to bring a gift that is $10 or less. This gift must be wrapped and brought to the meeting.
