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!

Zion Art Show Work Days: Please sign-up!!!

Posted by webmastermn on Sep 26 2014 - 3:17pm

Thank you to everyone who attended the PLC last night and helped move boxes and other materials upstairs. We got everything done very quickly. But, that was only part 1 of 3. We desperately need scouts to sign up for parts 2 and 3. Part two is this Sunday, 9/28. We need Scouts at 11:00 AM to help move everything else in the great room into the classrooms on the ground floor. This should not take more than a half hour if we have enough Scouts. Part 3, Sunday, 10/5, at 6:30 PM will be moving everything from the upstairs and downstairs rooms back into the great room. This part should take no more that an hour if we have enough Scouts to help out. If you are available for one or both of these days, please sign up. Thank you for your help!

Rescheduled Fairmount North Advancement Campout 10/3-10/5

Posted by webmastermn on Sep 26 2014 - 3:17pm

This campout will be focused on getting sign-offs for rank advancement. There will also be some other activities besides sign-offs, such as manhunt and a 5 mile hike. This will be from Friday, October 3rd at 6 pm to Sunday, October 5th at 10 am. Each patrol must bring their own food, because there is a cooking competition on Saturday night. The winning patrol will get candy bars. This campout will be at Fairmount North above the soccer field. We will be meeting in the parking lot, and then going up to the site. Hope to see you there!
