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. 

Troop 230 is looking for one or more parents capable of pulling the troop trailer on trips

Posted on May 9 2016 - 8:43pm

We need to know which parents are capable and willing of pulling the troop trailer for various troop trips.  The driver is not required to stay on the trip.  The driver taking the trailer to the event does not have to be the same driver who brings the trailer home.  Please contact Mrs. Bani or Mr. Breish if you would like to be on our potential trailer puller person ist.

In preparation of Summer Camp we will be starting our Swimming Sessions at Ursinus College continuing on Wednesdays this week (May 11, 2016) for 8 more weeks. The starting time is 7:00 to 8:30 for most weeks. Please have scouts arrive ready to swim so that we can make the most of our time. We have to do our swimming test for Summer Camp and work on Swimming and Lifesaving Merit Badges as well as Physical Fitness for the Sea Base Crew.  Please register as soon as possible for each week that you plan to attend.

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

Posted on Apr 21 2016 - 10:03pm

 

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!

ShopwithScript Fundraising!

Posted on Mar 4 2016 - 7:38pm

 Hi Everyone, reminder that the next Scrip order will be placed on Monday, March 7.  I will place the order after the Monday night meeting.

For those of you who may be new to the Troop, ShopWithScrip is a simple fundraising program that Troop 230 uses, and here’s how it works:

  • You buy retail gift cards through the Troop scrip program at face value.
  • You can choose from nearly 400 national retail stores.
  • The Troop buys the gift cards at 1-13% less than face value (varies by retailer).
  • The difference between face value and what the Troop pays goes directly to Troop 230 as fundraising dollars.
