BSA Troop # 290

About Us

Troop 290 is a “scout run” troop that provides a grand adventure full of exciting experiences as well as life lessons to build character, foster citizenship, and develop fitness.  Our scouts get to have fun while developing self-reliance, self-confidence, initiative, resourcefulness, moral character, and courage. 

Troop 290B – Boys  has been in Colts Neck, New Jersey since 1968.  Since the start, Troop 290 has had the honor of presenting the Eagle Scout Award (the highest rank in Scouting) to many of its members.  Additionally, the troop is a prominent participant in the Order of the Arrow (Scouting’s National Honor Society).

Troop 290A – Girls was chartered in February 2019 and already has a successful history of exciting camping adventures, numerous merit badges earned as well as multiple rank advancements among its members
