HIGH BRIDGE TROOP 149
Welcome to Troop 149 of High Bridge, NJ! For the past 100 years we have striven to fulfill the mission and vision statements of the Boy Scouts of America.
We've taught the scouts the importance of the Scout Oath and the Scout Law, as well as to try and incorporate them into their daily lives. Also, we've tried to instill in the scouts a sense of community, the importance of physical well-being, confidence, fun, and to love & respect the outdoors.
| Does your son like the outdoors, helping the community, and having fun with his peers? If so Troop 149 is open for boys, ages 11 - 18, to join us as a scout. Simply come to a troop meeting and sign up. For details about troop meetings please see below.
We would like to congratulate our recent Eagle Scouts: Matt Krisanits and Robert Whitney! They've worked hard over the course of their scouting journey to hit that milestone, and we wish them well as they continue on their paths through life.
Our September training campout at Voorhees State Park was very successful. It was well attended with 8 scouts and a previous eagle scout to help guide them. The scouts worked on rank requirements, which included cooking, cleaning, planning, leadership roles, and scoutcraft skills. We also went on a nice 5 mile hike through the park. On Saturday night we visited the NJAA Observatory for a presentation of the ISS. The weather was beautiful the whole weekend, and everyone had a good time.
Also, we have a food drive coming up in October. Keep an eye out for the collection bag we drop off. Please consider making a donation to help the local food pantry by placing a bag of grocery items out for pick up on Sunday, October 18th between 10am - 2pm.
Troop Meetings are held every Thursday night, between September and June, from 7:00pm - 8:30pm. They are held in the basement meeting room of the High Bridge United Methodist Church. The entrance is through the door in the back near Thomas Street. Meetings ARE NOT held if school is not in session that day.
Committee Meetings are held monthly on the 3rd Tuesday of the month from 7:30PM - 9:00pm. They are held in the same meeting room that troop meetings are held in. Troop parents are welcome to attend.
On my honor I will do my best To do my duty to God and my country and to obey the Scout Law; To help other people at all times; To keep myself physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight.
A Scout is trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, and reverent.
