About Troop 186

Three Bridges Boy Scout Troop 186 is chartered by the Three Bridges Reformed Church and has been serving Youth and the community since 1949.  We meet at the Three Bridges Reformed Church, located on Main Street, Three Bridges on Tuesdays during the school year from 7:00-8:30pm. 

Boys from all towns are welcome and the majority of our scouts reside in Readington and Flemington.

We go on an outing each month.  Some examples are: camping, hiking, skiing, canoeing, and snow tubing.

The troop also engages in service projects many times each year.  Some examples are cleaning up the Raritan River, serving at the Shepherd’s Meal in Whitehouse, collecting food for the Flemington Food Pantry just to name some.
