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!

Dear Troop Families,

As we have said many, times, the strongest Troops and most successful scouts have the highest family participation.
Although we have lots of great leaders and volunteers, family participation has become a challenge for Troop 199, especially as the Troop is not as large as it once was.
Everybody needs to help out in order for our scouts to succeed.
We have an immediate need to fill four key positions!
We need to fill both existing vacancies in the Troop and start planning for the inevitable rotation of adult leaders as they end their scouting journey.
The urgently needed positions are: 
1) Troop Leadership Committee (TLC) Secretary
     One of the 3 required TLC positions: Manages meeting minutes, Troop announcements and oversees website.
 2) Scout/Parent coordinator
      Helps the Troop find adult volunteers and mentors them for the particular event.
 3) Assistant Scoutmaster
       Support the Scoutmaster; work with the other ASMs in guiding the Boy Scout Program for our Troop.
 4) Assistant Scoutmaster
      Support the Scoutmaster; work with the other ASMs in guiding the Boy Scout Program for our Troop.
Once we fill these key roles we will announce additional volunteer opportunities.
Please consider how you can help keep Troop 199 running as the wonderful program it is, helping grow our boys into outstanding young men.
Please reach out to me or any other member of the TLC if you have any questions.  
Remember, without volunteers there is no scouting program!
Robert J Fernicola
