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

Posted by webmasterpf on May 18 2015 - 6:30pm


Scouts,

On the weekend of May 30th & 31st we will be hiking  the Appalachian Trail.  If we can get enough adult leaders,  younger scouts will be able to get off the trail at Buttermilk Falls, which would be 6 miles into the hike.  The total distance will be about 17  miles for the  entire trek.  The cost will be 5 dollars plus food.  We will get to the trail head Friday night and set up camp. (Times will depend on adult leadership schedules - to be announced.) In the morning we will get up, have breakfast and then begin the hike.  We will eat lunch around 12 when we drop off the younger scouts and then continue on the hike.  Saturday night we will either camp in the Brink Road Shelter or somewhere close by along the trail.  We will get up early Sunday morning to finish the last leg of the hike.  It will end approximately noon, when we get back to the cars on Sunday.

Have any old/torn/faded US flags?

We need all families to spread the word to gather up your old, faded, torn U.S. flags which will be retired in an honorable, solemn ceremony in the fire ring after the picnic.

Please bring any flags ready for retirement to one of our donation bins by Sunday, May 31. There will be bins at the Tewksbury Elementary School, Old Turnpike Middle School, and Melick’s Farm.

Miles for Matheny Community Service Opportunity

Sunday, May 31, 2015

Liberty Park, Peapack, NJ

 

Troop 199 has been invited once again to help out with the 18th annual Miles for Matheny benefiting Matheny, a special hospital and educational center for children and adults with medically complex developmental disabilities.

We will be helping with the new Fitness Walk, and/or accompanying the students and patients in the one-mile Wheelchair Walk.  We have also been asked to help clean up the park at the end of the events by doing litter patrol.

 

When considering helping out, please understand that the patients of Matheny may have severe disabilities and we will be working very closely with these patients.  This community service event is for the mature scout!  All scouts should discuss with their parents their involvement and it is suggested that any scout wishing to help out under the age of 13 be accompanied by a parent.  You can find out more about Matheny on their website:  http://www.matheny.org/

 

Scouts and adults please sign up to help with this unique event bringing together Matheny patients, students, family, friends, and the community to enjoy a day of cycling, walking, friendship and fun. 

Our involvement in this worthy event will last only a few hours mid-day on Sunday.  Exact times and other information will be announced soon.  Sign ups are open online now on the Troop website.

 

Califon Memorial Day Parade

Posted by webmasterpf on May 9 2015 - 12:58pm
Once again, we have been invited to march in the Califon Memorial Day Parade. The parade is on Memorial Day, Monday, May 25th. It officially starts at 11:00 AM for any parents who would like to come and watch, but scouts must be there for 10:15. We will meet at the Califon School, located on School Street. We will be in the parking lot, where parents can drop Scouts off. After the parade, there will be a Memorial Service at noon, next to the Califon Veterans Memorial. The ceremony will end with a 21-Gun Salute. The Califon Fire Company will have food and drinks available for purchase. In addition to this, the Kona Ice Truck will be at the end of the parade, so come prepared with money if you would like to purchase something. Sign-ups are open online, so please sign up! We need as many scouts as possible to help represent the troop. The parade is always a fun experience, so I encourage everyone, scouts and adults, to sign-up! Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. Thank you!
