Welcome !

Troop 59 is located in Point Pleasant,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.

Rick Maitland
Scoutmaster

 

Camping Trip Sept 19-21

Posted on Sep 16 2014 - 10:55am

Please register ASAP for this weekends camping trip.  We will be hanging out at the Sigety farm in Bedminster and performing some service hours for the troop in packing and moving our stuff out of the firehouse. 

A few boys working on their Eagle scout rank will be doing the Cooking for the Cooking Merit Badge.  Please put in the notes of the registration if you plan on working on the cooking requirements so we can coordinate the amount of food that will be prepared.  If too many boys sign up for this we will prioritize to the boys closest to the Eagle Rank.  These boys should do Requirements 6 and 7 (plan meals for campout and hiking, buy the food (will determine for how many scouts)) during this week, then plan on cooking the meals during the campout.

Looks like the weekend is going to be beautiful camping weather, lows in the 50s highs in the 70s.

Register Here.  Boys doing the Cooking MB will not have to pay for the camping trip (as they will be buying food).

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 angela2th@yahoo.com 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.
 
Thanks!
Angela Lefkowitz
