On Tuesday, September 12th, the leaders of Troop 57 announced surprising news: the Troop has purchased a new web domain! Within this new domain contains material to build a website, sign up and pay for campouts and much much more!!!You can check our progress here.

Because of this new development, this website will be deleted permanently after the new websit has been completed; please note that the new website will have a new URL address. If you need to contact the Troop with questions/concerns about this process, email

Thank you for your continued support of this Troop!


Welcome to Boy Scout Troop 57ís Website 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. Typically, Troop 57 averages 30-40 Scouts and about 10 scoutmasters, along with 5-10 committee members.

Since 1934, we are proud to have sent over 100 physically, mentally, and emotionally fit Eagle Scouts out to be leaders of the world!/font>

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 contains albums of Troop 57 pictures taken at Troop events and activities. Scouters may view, upload and order prints from this site.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me or any other troop scoutmaster at the 'Contact Us' section below.

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 outdoor 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.

Our 'Meeting Cancellation' schedule is in line with Parkland School District.

Monthly Committee Meetings are typically the last Wednesday of the month 6:30PM at the Lodge.

Here is a link to the 2017-2018 Troop Schedule as of 09/05/17.
