Welcome to Boy Scout Troop 33
Welcome to the Boy Scouts of America and Troop 33. By becoming a parent of a Boy Scout you are starting your son out on the great adventure of Scouting. This is an important and rewarding endeavor that you will share with him.We have been a active members of the Fanwood-Scotch Plains community for more than 75 years.

In addition to weekly meetings, there are monthly trips – where you’ll find our scouts cycling along the Delaware River, hiking the Appalachian Trail, or visiting historic sites such as historic Gettysburg, the United States Military Academy at West Point, and the United State Naval Academy at Annapolis, MD. Our Troop has participated in national Veterans Day ceremonies in Washington, DC where they marched with active-duty paratroopers from the 82nd Airborne Division and led the pledge of allegence.
Troop 33 frequently has outings that include skiing, whitewater rafting, canoeing and winter cabin camping. Every year we compete with other area troops in the Klondike Derby. Troop 33 older Scouts enjoy additional offerings through our Varsity program.
Every imaginable merit badge has been made available—from rock climbing to aviation, where they learned to fly small aircraft.
During the summer months the activities continue — at Allamuchy Boy Scout Camp, Camp Citta, Resica Falls, and Sabattis High Adventure Camp in upstate New York. We also have sent crews to Sea Base in the Florida Keys, with other groups headed for Philmont Scout Ranch, New Mexico — spectacular experiences they’ll never forget. Check out our photo album for a look at Troop 33.
Generation after generation, Troop 33 has instilled the principles of Scouting, as embodied in our Scout Law: A Scout is trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, and reverent.
You will find our Scouts cheerfully unloading your car at the Fanwood Recycling Center … collecting food for our local food bank....setting up at the Library book sale … improving the Fanwood Nature Center … landscaping and beautifying public areas throughout our communities.
Service, personal growth, friendship and adventure — these are the four pillars of Troop 33’s Scouting program. Committed adult leaders and mentors help our Scouts set and achieve goals, learn how to plan and work together, develop leadership abilities, and build outdoor survival skills.
Troop 33 is sponsored by the Fanwood Presbyterian Church.
