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.

February 8, 2015 is Scout Sunday. All Scouts are invited to the 10:30 PM Mass at Our Lady Queen of Peace Church to celebrate our duty to God and to recognize the boys who have earned religious awards this year. All Scouts attending Mass should be in Class A uniform (no hats in Church).
Scouts receiving awards or participating in the Mass should be at Church at 10:15 to practice.
If you attend a different place of worship, please let us know when they will host Scout Sunday so the boys can be exposed to their peer's religious practices.
SCOUT OATH or PROMISE
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 other people at all times;
To keep myself physically strong,
mentally awake and morally straight.
A Scout is ...
Trustworthy, Loyal, Helpful, Friendly, Courteous, Kind, Obedient, Cheerful, Thrifty, Brave, Clean, and Reverent.
Do a good turn daily!
As an American, I will do my best to
Be clean in my outdoor manners,
Be careful with fire,
Be considerate in the outdoors, and
Be conservation minded.
