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.

Please save your aluminum cans and begin bringing them to our Monday meetings.  We hope to make a trip to the recycling center in several weeks. Also note in the hot weather, rinsed cans are best!  Remember this helps defray the cost of the Troops expenses. Thank you

Court of Honor Report by Anthony D.

Posted on Apr 14 2014 - 11:06pm

The court of honor went very well. Everybody got their awards and had a nice good filling dinner.  Pasta, vegetables, meatballs, macaroni, bread, and Mrs. Studt’s Chile was out for the dinner portion and even more.  For dessert  - cookies, cake, and cupcakes were available and delicious.  Mr. Truckley earned the BSA Heroism award for saving his mom's life.  The night before Ryan’s court of honor, they went out to dinner and she started choking on her food. However, Mr. Truckley performed the Heimlich maneuver and saved her life. They ended up at the E.R (emergency room) as a big happy family.  The court of honor went well and even the candle ceremony went great.
