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.

Eagle Scout Project - Kitty Cottage Cat Rescue in East Norriton

Posted on Jun 28 2015 - 10:24pm

Hello everyone,
I am starting the hard work of my Eagle Scout project. I am building cat trees (those tall,multi-level structures that cats play on) for Kitty Cottage, a cat rescue in East Norriton.
I need help with my project on July 18th from 10-12 and 2-4.. It would be best if their were 3 scouts and 1 adult to help at each time slot. We will be doing the work at my house.
The helpers will be cutting wood, drilling holes in the wood, assembling parts of the trees, cutting and applying carpet to the trees and wrapping some of the wood in rope.
If anyone has an extra electric drill or ratchet that they could bring, it would be helpful. I have all the other tools and supplies.
Please sign up to support me on the Troop Calendar.

What are you doing with your old Scout equipment?

Have anything that you have outgrown or no longer use? Please consider donating or selling these items to other scouts who might have a need for it. Bring it to the Monday night meetings so others can take a look.
