Welcome to Troop 140

Welcome to the home page of The Boy Scouts of America, Troop 140 based in rural, scenic Blairstown, New Jersey in Warren County. We are part of the Pahaquarra District of the Central New Jersey Council. The troop has a long and proud history actually dating back more than 75 years. We have been sponsored for the most recent 52 years by the First United Methodist Church in Blairstown, NJ.

Troop 140 meets every Monday evening at 7:30 PM at the First United Methodist Church (on Stillwater Road behind the elementary school) in Blairstown. We enjoy an interesting and challenging program stressing the ideals and values which are the foundation of the Scouting movement. The troop goes camping at least once a month throughout the year. We also attend numerous events including camporees (including the annual West Point Camporee), the Klondike derby, sporting and civic events and parades among others. Our Venture Patrol hikes the Adirondack mountains each summer including a restful and fun few days at Brant Lake. We stress building confidence, leadership, team skills and citizenship in all our activities.

As our Scouts progress from Tenderfoot to Eagle rank they learn to appreciate the ideals set forth in the Scout Oath and Scout Law. In addition, through the skills they acquire they realize a good measure of self-reliance and independence (the good kind). They learn their duty to GOD, COUNTRY, SELF and OTHERS.

If you're at least 11 years old (or more) and are up to the challenge, come join us in the adventure....
