About Troop 39
Troop 39 is a Scout-led troop in Morris Plains for boys ages 11 to 17. The Scouts plan what trips to take, choose their peer leaders, and make pivotal decisions about how the troop is run. Troop members are encouraged to earn merit badges in a variety of important life skills and are supported by the troop every step of the way.
Established in 1930, Troop 39 has developed and honored over 90 Eagle Scouts – the BSA’s highest and most coveted rank, which remains a nationally recognized achievement. As a Scout, our troop members learn valuable life skills through a strong program of outdoor and other interest-based pursuits coupled with community service and leadership. They enjoy traditional activities such as camping, canoeing, backpacking, and cooking over a fire that they build themselves. They also explore interests in the arts, science, and technology. But, most of all, they have FUN – as they’ve been doing for over 90 years!
