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. 

Congratulations on Troop 230’s Newest Eagle Scout – Jared G

Earlier tonight, Mrs. Bani had the pleasure to see Jared G become Troop 230’s newest Eagle Scout.  Jared had his Eagle Scout Board of Review this evening and was awarded the Rank of EAGLE Scout.  Jared marks Troop 230’s 26th Eagle Scout. Jared 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 Jared and his family on this GREAT accomplishment!

Hello Everyone,

I am currently working on my Eagle Scout Project.  My project is collecting gently used, clean clothing for Open Door Ministries in Royersford.  I would appreciate it if you could bring any donations to the next four Monday night meetings. Scouts - I will have a sign up sheet on Monday  to help sort the clothing and bring to Open Door Ministries. Thank you all very much for your help in a successful clothing drive.

Spring has finally arrived and being outside is becoming the "place to be"!   Troop 230 has many activities and events continually happening throughout the spring that you, your scout and your entire family can participate in! IT IS CRUCIAL that you and your scout check the website as often as possible.  At this very moment there are three trips to register or regret for, there is our spring flower sale, and the DISCOUNTED EQUIPMENT PURCHASE OPTION is being offered.  Swimming continues - and should be registered for, and various other events! We cannot assume a scout is attending a trip.  We cannot assume he has the equipment he needs - BUT WE WANT TO HELP!!!!!    Advancement hinges on participation - the more your scout participates, the more he learns, exhibits scout spirit, and benefits from the strong qualities scouting provides to young men.  We want to help, but cannot if we don't hear from you!  So let's say you are having issues with the website - email us.   We can help.   Let's say you and your scout are concerned about attending an event - have your scout contact his patrol leader or the senior patrol leader and you can feel free to contact us - the leadership. So enjoy spring, enjoy the outdoors - but PLEASE take a quick moment to register, regret, recognize, participate and/or just plain old email us and say - HAPPY SPRING!

2015 Troop 230 Shirt Order

Posted on Apr 21 2015 - 10:49pm

At the parents meeting we talked about ordering shirts and sweatshirts for Summer Camp.  Please look at the form and order what you feel you will need.  There are few options for you to choose from. Just a reminder that your scout will be required to have at least 4 red and 3 grey shirts for Summer Camp.  They can use the ones they have if they have not outgrown them.  If they have outgrown them please have them bring them to a meeting to donate to the scout closet for someone else to use. Mrs. Korchok is in charge of the Scout Closet. We are also offering two types of wicking shirts which are really good for backpacking/hiking.  I have been asked if we would be selling “hoodies”.  And guess what we are selling hoodies this year. The order forms are due on May 11th.  If you do not need any shirts at all, please reply back to let me know that so that I am not bothering you for your order form. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask. If you want if the Scouts last name on the back of the sweatshirts price is an additional $5.00 and it you want embroidered it will be $8.00.  If you wish to have this please just note on the order form.  Again this is for sweatshirts only.
