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.

Philmont Fundraiser - Eastwood Summer Classic Car Show - Saturday, July 26th

Posted on Jul 21 2014 - 4:50pm

The Philmont crew will be selling water and ice cream at the Eastwood Summer Classic Car Show.  The Summer Classic Car Show is an annual event that can attract up to 300 cars. Let's hope for beautiful weather - since the better the weather the better the turn out. Eastwood sells tools and supplies for auto restoration and the car show allows people to bring their restored cars and share with others. We will be selling water and ice cream from a booth area, as well as from a wagon that is traveling among the cars. This should be a fun event where the scouts will be able to see the cars, as well as help fundraise. Click Here to REGISTER NOW

On the weekend of August 15th to August 17th Topton Rod & Gun Club will be hosting their annual Glock competition.  As all of you know, they provide the range free of charge to us yearly for our Topton Camping Weekend.  For the past few years, as a way to help pay it back to Topton for allowing us to use their facility we would like to ask scouts to help out with the setting up of the match on Friday and then actually working with the range officers on Saturday & Sunday.  This is a great time for the boys to see the competition.  This year we have also been asked to provide a food concession area for breakfast and lunch on Saturday and Sunday!   WE will need as many as possible to help - if you are helping Ryan B in the early part of the day on Saturday, come on out later to finish out the day with us!  WE NEED PEOPLE TO WORK THE FOOD SALES AS WELL AS WORK THE RANGES!  PLEASE RESPOND ASAP SO WE KNOW WE ARE OKAY FOR HELP!  We are in need of about 10-15 scouts/leaders per day to help volunteer. Range workers are all day workers, food sales can be set up on a rotating schedule!   Please register and we will discuss times and how you will be helping as the time gets closer!   Parents and scouts are welcome to this event!   Contact Mrs. Bani with questions.
