           “Keeping the Outing in Scouting”    

Troop 33 has a long history. First started in 1925, the Troop was closed and restarted several times before

a dedicated group of Scouters rechartered the Troop in 1999. Chartered under the American Legion Charles

Nelson Lobb Post 502 in Pen Argyl. Troop 33 meets at Scout Hall inside WEONA Park every Tuesday,

7:00pm. We would like to thank Post 502 and Pen Argyl Park for their ongoing support.


Troop 33 is what is known as a “Boy Run Troop”. The Scouts plan and carryout their agenda. Our dedicated

leadership oversees the safety and logistics of their events. The troop motto “Keeping the Outing in Scouting”

is reinforced by camping year around. Giving the Scouts 12 months of fun and learning opportunities.


Presently Troop 33 has (25) registered youths and (9) trained Assistant Scoutmasters. Troop officers are

as follows; Mara Kessler (Committee Chair), Chris Witmer (Scoutmaster), Patty Policelli (Treasurer),

Sandy Gentile (Advancement Chair), Linda Witmer (Secretary), Eileen Leicht (Chaplain).


The youth positions are as follows; Austin Witmer is Senior Patrol Leader (S.P.L.), Anthony Gentile is his

Assistant Senior Patrol Leader (A.S.P.L.), Nick Policelli (Scribe), Austin Witmer (Historian), Cody Mikol (Quartermaster), Patrick Leicht (Chaplains Aid). Many other positions exist within the three patrols we are

presently working under.


Troop 33 is always looking to help prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their

lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law. Scouting is a game with a purpose.

Fun is the game. Values are the Purpose. Learning is the Process. Come enjoy the Game and help us “Keep

the Outing in Scouting”.
