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.

Scrip the halls

Posted on Dec 12 2016 - 10:48pm

Monday December 5th is the deadline for the last scrip order of the year. You can get some Christmas shopping done and add to your son's scout account at the same time

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.

Visit the ShopWithScrip web site to learn more.  Visit the Troop web site for instructions on how to participate in our scrip program.

Ted Studt needs help with his Eagle project to improve the current conditions in the Away and Home Concession Stands.

We'll be taking out the current counter within the Away Concession Stand, putting cabinets in, then using them to build a support structure for the new counter. In addition, we'll be building a door for the shelving in the Home Concession Stand so that the contents of the shelving are protected from the elements.

You can come help out on the 27, 28, and 30 of December and the 2 of January from 9-12 and from 1-4. Please register for this on the website.

Please list what you can bring to help out. Helpful items to bring would be saws, hammers, screwdrivers, and safety glasses.

Contact Ted at twstudt@gmail.com for more information if needed.
