Boy Scout Troop 68
sponsored by:
Connecticut Farms Presbyterian Church
888 Stuyvesant Ave
Union, NJ 07083 

We currently have 33 boys registered and 10 adult leaders in the Troop.
So far, 106 Scouts have earn the rank of Eagle.

Our Scout troop meets every Wednesday evening in the Connecticut Farms Church gym from 7:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.  Scouts learn about leadership by helping and directing the newer scouts and the trained adults supervise the troop camp-outs, activities and meetings.  The scouts also build character by learning to live by the scout oath and law.  Our philosophy is and has been Scouts learn by doing with hands on experiences.

The troop has always had an active camping program.  The boys raise funds for equipment and to go on special camping trips.  The troop has gone on trips as far away as Florida, Virginia, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, Connecticut and Washington, D.C., to name a few.  The troop also has a planned activity each month and weekly troop meetings are held in the gym of the Connecticut Farms Church.

          Learning scouting skills is an important part of the program that is required in order for boys to advance in rank.  The first rank is Scout, and then Tenderfoot, Second Class, First Class, Star, Life and the highest rank is Eagle Scout.  Only a small percentage of boys that are in Boy Scouts ever achieve this rank.

The troop has been fortunate to have had dedicated scoutmasters to lead the scouts.
