Essentials

Boy Scout Troop 368 provides real adventure, leadership training, character building and community service for about 80 boys from Berkeley Heights and Mountainside in middle and high school.

We are chartered by the Rotary Club of Berkeley Heights and are part of the Watchung Mountain District in Patriots Path Council of the Boy Scouts of America.

We meet on Tuesday evenings at 7:30 in Mountain Park School, Berkeley Heights.

History

Boy Scout Troop 368 was originally chartered back in January 29, 1961 and is still going strong. We have produced over 100 Eagle Scouts in that time and there are more on the way!

In 2014 Troop 368 made the news for rescuing NBC journalist Ann Curry!

In 2004 a Scout in the troop originated a fundraising idea that has becaome an annual event in Berkeley Heights ever since - the Rubber Ducky Festival, benefitting the charitable works of the Berkeley Heights Rotary Club, it's chartered Boy Scout and Cub Scout units, local businesses, and the community at large.

 

The 368 difference Like all Boy Scout Troops worthy of the name our troop is run by boys, giving them the opportunity to develop leadership throughout their teen years. Adults provide a safe environment, facilitate the Scouts' plans, and coaching where needed.

We offer age-appropriate adventure for middle-schoolers and high-schoolers. We have our own fleet of canoes, which we launch into the Delaware most years - a thrill for even first year scouts.

Troop 368 is perhaps best known for it's peerless High Adventure Program. High-school aged Scouts have rafted through the Grand Canyon, crewed a sailing ship in the Bahamas, gone SCUBA diving, walked the rainforest canopy and ziplinined in Costa Rica, gone rapelling, whitewater rafting and spelunking in West Virginia, and gone on a multi-day SCUBA expedition in the Bahamas. We also regularly send crews backpacking in the BSA's Philmont ranch in New Mexico.

We go weekend camping every month except during summer vacation. In the winter it's typically cabin-camping, but some Scouts opt to sleep outdooors under the stars or in tents, provided they are sufficiently prepared.The Troop attends Sabbatis Adventure Camp in the Adirondaks every Summer (Winnebago in NJ for first year Scouts).
