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.

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.
