Welcome to the BSA Troop 230 Website

BSA Troop 230’s program revolves around the great outdoors.  We are a backpacking troop and will start hitting the trail in March and go until November.  Most of our backpacking has been on the Appalachian Trail in Southeastern Pennsylvania.  We average 5-7 hikes per year with at least 3 of them being overnight trips or longer.  Recently we have completed a 14 mile hike on the Pinchot Trail in Lackawanna County in the Pocono’s.  Some other trails that we have hiked are Ricketts Glen, French Creek, Hickory Run State Park, and Monacacy Hill, a very local trail that is approximately 5 miles of various terrain and small challenges along the way as to not discourage the boys.  This is a great way to introduce the boys to hiking. 

Congratulations on Troop 230’s Newest Eagle Scout – Harrison M

Earlier tonight, Mrs. Studt had the pleasure to see Harrison Mondello become Troop 230’s newest Eagle Scout.  Harrison had his Eagle Scout Board of Review this evening and was awarded the Rank of EAGLE Scout.  Harrison marks Troop 230’s 31st Eagle Scout. Harrison presented himself in true Scouting principles and represented his troop, family and most importantly himself in the highest regards.  We are so proud of your hard work and dedication to reach this milestone in your life.  Congratulations on achieving scouting’s high rank.  Good luck in all that you set out to do and remember… ONCE AN EAGLE, ALWAYS AN EAGLE. Congratulations to Harrison and his family on this GREAT accomplishment!
