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.

September 2014 - Webelos/Walter's Farm Camping Weekend Report

Posted on Nov 11 2014 - 9:55pm

This weekend was a good weekend with about ten webelos’ scouts. On Saturday, we had a patrol competition including an adult patrol. The patrols had to use their fire building skills, orienteering skills, construction skills to build the “high-tech” catapults, and our first aid skills. After all the catapults were built, the patrols fired them which JT’s patrol took 1st place; leaving the adult patrol as the runner up at 2nd. After our catapults, the patrols had to cook delicious and delicious looking cakes which Owen’s patrol won. Overall, Owen’s patrol took the invisible trophy for 1st while JT’s patrol trailing at 2nd. On Sunday, we had a rather quick pack up and were out early.

Holiday Gift Card Giving

Posted on Nov 11 2014 - 7:25pm

Hi Parents, 

With the holidays approaching, this would be a great time to take advantage of our Scrip program for your gift card giving needs.  Many of us end up giving or "trading" gift cards at this time of year - why not purchase them thru Scrip?  We will work with you to make the cards available when you need them, rather than just the first Monday of the month.
