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.
* The calendar for the upcoming 2016 - 2017 scouting year has been updated. Please visit the troop's calendar page to familiarize yourselves with important dates for the year.
* Our trip to summer camp was a successful one. We had 7 scouts and 3 leaders attend Camp Rodney, which was located on the banks of the Chesapeake Bay. A few days of occasional storms rolled through, but the weather was nice for the most part. The scouts did a variety of merit badges, in addition to a bunch of fun extra-curricular activities such as night rock climbing, night swimming, tubing on the bay, open shooting at the rifle range, a mile long bay hike waist deep in the Chesapeake, and orienteering at night. The leaders had their share of fun things as well with water skiing, jet skiing, rock climbing, rifle shooting competitions, etc. A fun time was had by all, and we look forward to fun and eventful camp experience in 2017.
* With the completion of summer camp our scouts can enjoy a hard earned rest over the summer months. Hopefully they keep finding ways to implement the Scout Oath and Scout Law in their everyday lives. We wish everyone a safe and happy summer, and we look forward to seeing everyone again in the fall when troop meetings start up again. Please check the calendar for dates.
