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 Dan Butcher (scoutmaster@OLQPTroopandPack159.org)
