After a few years' absence, the Troop will be going back to Ockanickon Scout Reservation this summer. OSR is a great camp and the official camp of our new Council.
An important difference from years past is that OSR requires scouts to register for their Merit Badges online. It's first-come, first-served and some badges have restrictions or other requirements, so get online and sign up now!

May 10, 2014 A group of NJ Scouts helped rescue NBC journalist Ann Curry while they were on a Philmont training hike in Harriman State Park. Curry broke her ankle while hiking with her husband and son and credited the Scouts with getting her safely to help. They performed First Aid and built a rig to carry Curry back down the mountain to a waiting rescue crew. Scouting Magazine has the details on these hero Scouts. (Read more...)

Mr. Wells submitted this trip report on the Scouts' weekend outing to the Buhler Challenger and Science Center:
Our Scouts went to the Buehler Challenger and Science Center in Paramus NJ for a sleep-in, and learned all about space exploration.
This center was created as a living memorial to those astronauts, who lost their lives in the Challenger shuttle explosion in 1986. (Read more...)

Please read this important message from CNJC President Terry McCarty:
Dear Scouting Family,(Read more...)
As good stewards of Scouting, we must do what allows us to most efficiently accomplish Scouting's mission for the young people throughout central New Jersey. Despite commendable efforts and while individual packs, troops, crews, and posts have remained active, this council has not been performing well financially for at least a decade.
With that in mind, last week the Central New Jersey Council Executive Board voted that it would be in the best interest of the youth we serve to transfer existing packs, troops, crews, and posts to neighboring councils that are more financially solvent, followed by the eventual dissolution of the council.

Those Scouts lucky enough to have attended either of the last two BSA National Jamborees will never forget what a great and inspirational (and funny) speaker Mike Rowe is.
Rowe, of "Dirty Jobs" fame, is an Eagle Scout and a strong supporter of Scouting. This video of him speaking at the 2012 BSA National Annual Meeting is something no Scout should miss. (Read more...)
November 18, 2013 From the BSA Blog "Bryan on Scouting:"
It's been more than a year since I blogged about the switch to the Scout Oath and Scout Law in all programs, a change that primarily affects Venturing and Cub Scouting.(Read more...)
The resolution, passed by the National Executive Board last year, means that soon every Scout of any age will use the Scout Oath and Law instead of reciting separate, program-specific sayings. Cub Scouts will recite the Scout Oath and Law instead of the Cub Scout Promise and Law of the Pack. Similarly, Venturers will no longer use the Venturing Oath and Venturing Code.
