Boy Scout Troop 159 is sponsored by Our Lady Queen of Peace Church in Hewitt, NJ.

Boy Scouting is a year-round program for boys ages 11-17. Through the Boy Scout program, The Boy Scouts of America is one of the nation's largest and most prominent values-based youth development organizations. The BSA provides a program for young people that builds character, trains them in the responsibilities of participating citizenship, and develops personal fitness.

Boy Scout Troop 159 meets between the months of September and June, every Wednesday from 7:30 to 9 PM in the Our Lady Queen of Peace gymnasium (1911 Union Valley Road, Hewitt, NJ 07421). Our program also consists of monthly camping trips and annual summer camp attendance in July.

If you're interested in seeing what Scouting and Teamwork is all about, please contact Scoutmaster Tim Kopko (scoutmaster@OLQPTroopandPack159.org)

Popcorn 2016

"It's not about the popcorn, it's about supporting Scouting."

Troop 159's fall popcorn fundraiser begins with our show-and-sell in September.  Most scouts are experienced salesmen but each boy should remember to:

  • Be supervised: Boy Scouts must be accompanied by an adult.
  • Be prepared: Boy Scouts must wear full class A uniforms.
  • Be courteous: Boy Scouts treat everyone with respect.

The show-and-sell will be held 2 weekends in September (click to signup online):

This weekend is voluntary.
Sign up for 2 Masses and earn $15 in your scout account

This weekend is mandatory.  Extra shifts worth $15 in your scout account will be available 1 week beforehand.
You only need to sign up for one 1-hour shift

Don't forget to respond to the confirmation email or you will lose your slot.

Please contact Mr. Rodriguez if you have any questions.
