|Boy Scout Troop 57 Neffs, PA|
| Scoutmaster's Welcome |
Welcome to Neffs, PA Boy Scout Troop 57 and thanks for stopping by. Our Troop was founded on June 3, 1934. We are located in eastern Pennsylvania, in a suburban residential community in North Whitehall Township, Lehigh County. Neffs and nearby Schnecksville are about 8 miles North of Allentown on route 873. Typically, Troop 57 averages 35-50 Scouts and about 15 leaders. Since 1934 we are proud to have sent over 97 physically, mentally, and emotionally fit Eagle Scouts out to be leaders of the world. We are chartered through the North Valley District of Minsi Trails Council which covers eastern PA and NJ. Our sponsoring churches are Neffs UCC and Schnecksville Union Lutheran Church.
A private website at Shutterfly.com contains albums of Troop 57 pictures taken at Troop events and activities. Scouters may view, upload and order prints from this site. It also has the capability to send out automatic email reminders based on Troop Calendar Activities.

|Mission Statement |
Our mission is the same as the BSA's… to serve others by helping to instill values in young people and, in other ways, to prepare them to make ethical choices during their lifetime in achieving their full potential. The values we strive to instill are based on those found in the Scout Oath and Law.
Troop Meetings are held on Tuesday evenings from 6:30 to 7:45pm at our Scout Lodge in the woods on the church campus. It offers us the best of both worlds - a great indoor and out side meeting, training and camping facility. Typically we do not have a troop meeting the Tuesday after a camping/activity weekend.
We take a break from regular weekly meetings during the summer and start back up in early September.
Monthly Committee Meetings are typically the last Wednesday of the month 6:30PM at the Lodge.
