posted Mar 5, 2020, 8:19 AM by Jim Stringer   [ updated Mar 5, 2020, 8:54 AM ]

We are planning a camping trip to the American Sportsmen Club hunting lodge (200 Hwy 539, Whiting, NJ 08759) for the weekend of March 20 – 22, 2020. The scouts will have the opportunity to safely use a .22 rifle or a 12/20 shotgun at various targets.  We will have an NRA/BSA trained adult camping with us. The cost for Scouts is $41 for camping, rifle/shotgun activity, and meals, OR $35 for camping and meals only.  Scouts will be camping in a lodge and will need to bring sleeping bags and personal gear.

The Troop will be meeting at the Adelphia Firehouse at 6:30 PM for departure. All scouts attending must be accounted for at that time. For any other arrangements or changes, you must notify the scoutmaster in advance.

***Deadline for permission slips & fees is Thursday, March 19, 2019***  Also, dues must be paid up to date in order to participate.

If you have any questions please contact Jim Stringer at (732) 995-6858.

Medical Forms

Let's get started on Medical Forms for Summer Camp. To attend summer camp, you must submit Part A, Part B1, Part B2, and Part C.

Part C requires an exam by a licensed practitioner.

To attend regular activities, you must have submitted Part A, Part B1. and Part B2.

PLEASE NOTE: There have been (minor) changes to Part A, Part B1, and Part B2, so please don't just photocopy last year's forms.

The forms can be found at scouting.org/health-and-safety/ahmr.


Summer Camp

posted Feb 12, 2020, 11:08 AM by Alex Karn

As a reminder, Scouts are asked to have their Early Bird money in by 2/20/2020 so that the checks can clear the bank, and Mr. Karn has enough time to get the money to Ockanickon.
Because 2/20/2020 is a PLC meeting, Scouts might want to bring their checks this Thursday (Regular Troop meeting).
Checks should be made out to Troop 150 in the amount of $420.00 per Scout.
Summer Camp is July 19 to July 25, 2020.

Scout Equipment for Klondike Derby

posted Jan 29, 2020, 5:57 PM by Jim Stringer

Each scout should make sure they have the following fro the Klondike Derby:

  • Neckerchief (do not need to wear)
  • Compass
  • Pocketknife w/Totin' Chip
  • Snacks
  • Two liters of water
  • Lunch and drink
These should be packed in a daypack (so they could be put on the sled). In addition all scouts should wear boots (no sneakers!) and Class B shirts. 

May Camping Trip - NJ State Police/National Guard Camporee

posted Jan 16, 2020, 12:50 PM by Jim Stringer

Every three years, there is a NJ State Police/National Guard camporee at Sea Girt NJ. This will be the 6th event and will be held from 5/29 - 5/31. The last one in 2017 had about 10,000 boys attending. There are a lot of hands-on activities that take place that are well worth a visit. The details around this trip are as follows:
  • Registration closes on April 1 (or when the number of people reaches 10,000)
  • Early Bird rate is $45 until 1/31, and will be $50 after that
  • There will be $20 added to the trip for food.
The timeframe is short on this, so we'd like to have the money for the scouts collected by 1/30 so we can take advantage of the rate (and make sure that we won't get shut out).

There is a $50.00 sibling discount.
