Welcome to Neffs, PA Boy Scout Troop 57 and thanks for stopping by. Our Troop was founded on June 3, 1934. We are located in eastern Pennsylvania, in a suburban residential community in North Whitehall Township, Lehigh County. Neffs and nearby Schnecksville are about 8 miles North of Allentown on route 873.

Typically, Troop 57 averages 35-50 Scouts and about 15 leaders. Since 1934 we are proud to have sent 66 physically, mentally, and emotionally fit Eagle Scouts out to be leaders of the world.

We are chartered through the North Valley District of Minsi Trails Council which covers eastern PA and NJ. Our sponsoring churches are Neffs UCC and Schnecksville Union Lutheran Church.

We run a very active year round program. We seem to love outdoor experiences such as camping and hiking.

Our troop meets on Tuesday evenings from 6:30 to 7:45 at our newly remodeled Scout Lodge in the woods on the church campus. It offers us the best of both worlds - a great indoor and out side meeting, training and camping facility.

See Troop Schedule for actual meeting date and some of our scheduled activities.

Troop 57 is a "Boy Run" unit with scouts from eleven to eighteen years old. We have strong adult leaders that provide the guidance and direction, but the experienced scouts who have earned positions of leadership in the troop plan the meetings, select the outings, and teach the newer boys what it means to be a Boy Scout. Our goal is for the scouts to learn to take responsibility within our Troop and their community.

Our Mission:

Our mission is the same as the BSA's… to serve others by helping to instill values in young people and, in other ways, to prepare them to make ethical choices during their lifetime in achieving their full potential. The values we strive to instill are based on those found in the Scout Oath and Law.

Visit our web pages and you will be acquainted with our organization, policies, history, schedules, activities, camps we attend, and some pictures. Look us over, stop by for a visit, and feel free to join us. Contact us through the churches or via our email address below. The Lutheran Church is our US Postal mailing address.
