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!

Upcoming Service Opportunities

Posted by webmastermn on Feb 9 2016 - 4:57pm

In the next few weeks there will be lots of service opportunities.

Up first will be Food Day, a district event to raise food for local food pantries. 2/20. (The day before the Red and White banquet.) Food day will last from 9 AM to 4 PM at the Branchburg Shoprite. Ideally we will have 2 hour shifts. We are going to give shopping lists to people as they walk in. They will buy the things on those lists and give them to us as they leave. All of the food will be delivered to local food pantries at the end of the day. We are sharing the day with the Stanton Troop, and our Pack will join us. We need one ASM and one parent for each shift. Please sign up on the website as soon as you can, registration will open soon.

After that is the pet supply drive at the Red and White banquet. 2/21. Instead of the canned food drive that we usually have, we will be collecting pet supplies to donate to Whisker's Hope, a local nonprofit cat (and dog) rescue. You should bring things like: toys, food, beds, and money.

After that is the pancake breakfast. 2/28. Which will be run by Will Melick.

Up next is IHN, Interfaith Hospitality Network. Families in poverty will be staying at the CEB. We need scouts and their families to volunteer to spend time with them, maybe make some food. 2/14 to 2/28. To sign-up, click here.
