Please read this important message from CNJC President Terry McCarty:
Dear Scouting Family,(Read more...)
As good stewards of Scouting, we must do what allows us to most efficiently accomplish Scouting's mission for the young people throughout central New Jersey. Despite commendable efforts and while individual packs, troops, crews, and posts have remained active, this council has not been performing well financially for at least a decade.
With that in mind, last week the Central New Jersey Council Executive Board voted that it would be in the best interest of the youth we serve to transfer existing packs, troops, crews, and posts to neighboring councils that are more financially solvent, followed by the eventual dissolution of the council.

Those Scouts lucky enough to have attended either of the last two BSA National Jamborees will never forget what a great and inspirational (and funny) speaker Mike Rowe is.
Rowe, of "Dirty Jobs" fame, is an Eagle Scout and a strong supporter of Scouting. This video of him speaking at the 2012 BSA National Annual Meeting is something no Scout should miss. (Read more...)
November 18, 2013 From the BSA Blog "Bryan on Scouting:"
It's been more than a year since I blogged about the switch to the Scout Oath and Scout Law in all programs, a change that primarily affects Venturing and Cub Scouting.(Read more...)
The resolution, passed by the National Executive Board last year, means that soon every Scout of any age will use the Scout Oath and Law instead of reciting separate, program-specific sayings. Cub Scouts will recite the Scout Oath and Law instead of the Cub Scout Promise and Law of the Pack. Similarly, Venturers will no longer use the Venturing Oath and Venturing Code.
July 4, 2013 Thunderstorms, teeming rain, merit badges, rope and rock climbing, swimming, boating, shooting and more. It's just another day at Resica Falls Scout Reservation, where Troop 200's scouts are having the week of their lives. Read all about it as it happens on our special Summer Camp Update page.

Like Mr. La Tournous says (over and over again) "Winter is the best season for camping -- except for all the others." We're pretty sure he's mostly kidding, but whatever he thinks, the Scouts who braved this year's Klondike had a blast: an Arctic blast. Even with 4-degree nights and ground so frozen they could barely get their tent stakes in the ground, Troop 200 heated up the weekend with great Scout skills, amazing teamwork, culinary delights and corny skits.
We'll have a full trip report soon, but in the meantime, check out this photo gallery. (Read more...)
December 20, 2012 The "Bryan on Scouting" blog has the story of the BSA Chief Executive's visit to Newtown, CT, where he presented the families of two Tiger Scouts killed in last week's shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School.
In a touching gesture, the two Tiger Cubs killed in last week's shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School have been awarded the Spirit of the Eagle Award.(Read more...)
BSA Chief Scout Executive Wayne Brock and other top professionals presented the families of Chase Kowalski and Benjamin Wheeler with the award, "an honorary, posthumous special recognition for a registered youth member who has lost his or her life in an accident or through illness."
