We are the first and only Outdoor Service Guides scout group in NJ. The Outdoor Service Guides offer a back-to-basics scouting based on outdoor activities and hands-on experiences for all ages from 2+. The Outdoor Service Guides are affiliated with the World Federation of Independent Scouts, though we love to scout with everyone.
We ARE meeting in person with layers of precautions such as: health screening before meetings, mask wearing at all times when not eating/drinking, social distancing, limiting sharing of materials. We use CDC and NJ Department of Health to make decisions about how, when and where to meet.
We offer a Chipmunk Scout Circle for children 2-4, Otter Section for children 5-7, a Timberwolf section for children 8-10 and a Pathfinder section for kids 11-17. Chipmunks are our youngest scouts, meeting a few times of a year for a nature-based play date and/or tagging along when their older siblings are at a meeting.
We get together for a few times over the summer for outdoor fun & some camping, then our program runs from September through June. The 28th meets twice a month, once for a meeting, again for an outing, hike or camp out. Scouting is a game best played outdoors so we meet outdoors as much as possible.

Hope we see you on the trail or around the campfire soon!
