Welcome to our homepage !!

We are a multi-age troop located in Central New Jersey. This is our third year as a group together. We are very active and like to do many things! We love to play games, do crafts, earn try-its, go on field trips and work on service projects!

It's the start of a new year for Trop 1729!  This year our members are: Catherine, Hayley, Nicole, Kelsey, Charlet, Anna, Elaina, Olivia, , Emily, Justine, Carrie, Jayme, Stephanie  and Victoria.   This year we are looking forward to learning more outdoor skills and camping!  We will be working on service projects such as the Ocean Action Beach Sweep.  Some of us will continue working on our Bronze Award and others of us will just be starting.

We will be working with our sister troop on our bridging requirements. They will help us earn our first junior badge, Looking Your Best.

We took our first camping trip with our sister troop, Junior Troop 1516.  We stayed in a yurt which luckily had a refrigerator and wood burning stove.  We learned how to build a campfire, light matches, use a charcoal chimney and cook over the coals on the grill.  We baked monkey bread in the box ovens that Troop 1516 made.  We roasted marshmallows over the campfire to make s'mores for snack and sang around the campfire.  We also took a night hike through the woods.  Everyone thought that was VERY scary since it was pitch black.  We did a little work on compass skills and took another hike through the whole camp during the day.

  Our Service Unit will be having our encampment in the spring so we are looking forward to camping with everyone. 
We are hoping to do a white water rafting trip in the summer.

We had a great year (2004/2005)! Our parents held a yard sale for us to earn money to work on service projects along with our sister troop, Junior Troop 1516! We began writing to our  penpals - Brownie Troop in Ventura, California. We continued our mascot exchanges with troops from around the country and overseas! We went to
Build A Bear as the service project for the Zink the Zebra program. For the holiday season we went to see the Nutcracker Ballet at Count Basie Theatre. We had a great year selling cookies.  We sold 1000 boxes and sent cookies to the troops in Iraq.  We went to the Brownie Tea Party, the luau, and  marched in the Memorial Day Parade.  We also went to YMCA Camp Bernie for a busy outdoor day where we went horseback riding, scaled the climbing wall, did the Low Ropes Challenge course, canoed, and tried archery. We had our end of the year International Dinner/Court of Awards with our families.  And finally had a family day at the Philadelphia Zoo.
