Welcome !

Troop 59 is located in Plumstead,Pennsylvania and has been an active part of the community for over 60 years.



Not all Boy Scout Troops are created equal. That said, Troop 59 is a 'Boy Led Troop' rooted in:

  • History: The wonderful sense of belonging to one of the first Boy Scout troops in our area that has operated continuously and been an active member of the community.

  • Family: Troop 59 has a family feeling. We are a small troop (our average number of Scouts has historically averaged around 20 boys) and are proud of that. Being small allows each Scout's family to be an active participant in the activities of the Troop. The Boy Scouts of America has overwhelming support to back up the statement that a Scouts success is directly related to the level of involvement of his parent(s) in his scouting career.

  • Honor:The Boy Scout Oath says it perfectly:

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 others at All Times;
To keep myself Physically Strong,
Mentally Awake, and Morally Straight.

Troop Dues are PAST DUE!

Posted on Dec 4 2014 - 9:25pm

Annual membership dues for 2014 - 2015 are $130.00 per Scout. Dues for this year are the same as last year.  Please pay by December 1st so we have an accurate headcount for the annual Troop Re-charter process. 

Our dues also include all fees due to the Council. In other words, the amount listed above is all you must pay outside of activity fees and summer camp. (Friends of Scouting pledges are voluntary, but much needed by Council.) Your Scout account will be utilized to pay for Troop 59 dues. You will be notified of any difference between the total dues and your Scout account balance. Please check with Mike Nangle or myself regarding any questions about your current Scout account balance. 

The annual dues does not include a subscription to Boys' Life magazine. The annual subscription rate is $15.00. If you would like to receive Boys' Life magazine, you will need to utilize PayPal on the Online Payments page of the troop website or include the extra $15.00 with your annual dues check. 

We would appreciate payment in full for dues by December 1st, 2014. You can pay by providing a check made out to Troop 59 to Mike Nangle or by PayPal via the Online Payments page on the troop website. 

If you have any questions, comments or special requests, please do not hesitate to let Mike or I know. We want to ensure that your son has every opportunity to thrive in Scouting with Troop 59. 

Please feel free to contact me directly via email or phone with any questions. The adult leaders and I look forward to working with your Scouts as they grow with Troop 59. 

Yours in Scouting, 

Randy Deihl

Uniform Exchange

Posted on Oct 27 2013 - 9:09pm
Dear Troop 59 Parents,
In case you did not know, this is to inform you that we have a uniform exchange system within the troop.  If you would like to donate any Scout items your son has outgrown, we will pass them on to someone in the troop who can use them. At any time, if your son needs new uniform items, check here first to see if we have what you need. 
I will be holding onto the items so that I can track things as they come in and go out.  If you need anything that is on the list, please call me at (215) 794-0376 or email me at and I will send the item into the next Monday meeting.  If you have any items to donate, please send them in to a Monday meeting.  
If you have any questions, please let me know.
