FUN, CHALLENGE and ADVENTURE
Scouts from our troop embark on adventures of a lifetime that are truly memorable experiences! Recently, we traveled to the Bahamas for a 10 day long high adventure trip. Every month we participate in a campout that involves a fun activity. Next year we will be doing an adventure trip to Philmont Scout Ranch, New Mexico. Now's the time to get involved!
Troop 368 is one of two Boy Scout Troops in Berkeley Heights. Fun activities include: camping, whitewater rafting, skiing/snowboarding, climbing/rappelling, survival, and more! Boys ages 11 to 17 can join. The Troop is run by the scouts under responsible adult supervision. Troop 368 is sponsored by the Berkeley Heights Rotary Club.
The Troop Committee of Troop 368 is responsible for ensuring a challenging, effective, safe and healthy plan for the Scouts to achieve the maximum value from the program. All parents of participating Scouts are encouraged to help out in whatever capacity they can.
