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.


Congrats to our new troop leaders !!!

Goose Pond Summer Camp - A Great Week!

Posted on Jul 3 2017 - 12:27pm

We had a  very good camp experience at Goose Pond Scout Reservation.  11 boys attended together with myself, Steve Reinard, Scott Schwartz, and Dan Swencak.  Many merit badges were earned.  Goose Pond was a very nice camp right near Lake Wallenpaupack.  It hosts only 150 campers a week with a staff of 40.  The food was great and the staff was one of the best I every worked with.  The boys had a great time and we enjoyed very nice weather.  I will get all the MB cards to Rick Maitland so he can enter into Troop database.  Thanks and enjoy the 4th of July Holiday.

Hidden Lake Farm Workshop

 I am going to build cold frames for the Bowman's hill wildflower preserve.  I am planning to have a day where we work in the shop to cut all the pieces and then a day to assemble them at the preserve.  We want to make the pieces on Saturday the 8th  at the hidden lake farm shop from 10am-2pm. Lunch and refreshments will be provided.  We will be assembling the walls of the frames so it will be easier to assemble on the assembly day.
