Welcome to Boy Scout Troop 230!

Troop 230 welcomes you to our website.  Please explore the different information about our troop and it's activities.  Troop 230 is part of the Playwicki district in the Bucks County Council.  Our troop is sponsored by St. Ignatius Church of Yardley, Pennsylvania. 

The troop strives to live by the scout oath, law and motto through it's numerous activities.  Each year our senior scout leadership plans the next calendar year of activities, including monthly camping trips, scout craft and merit badge focus and most importantly, various community service projects.

In the past our advancement to Eagle throughout our troop has been outstanding.  The challenge is given to each scout of Troop 230 to obtain this rank as a means to build their foundation into becoming a contributing adult in our ever increasing complicated society.

Registration is open for our Valley Forge Trip.  Our plan is to stay over the weekend at a scout owned campground, in a heated cabin.  We will hike the 9+ mile Valley Forge trail on Saturday, and work toward earning the Valley Forge Trail medal.  A major part of the work to earn the award is visiting and understanding the historic significance of the presentations throughout the park.

The troop is heading to Camp Yawgoog this summer in Rhode Island.  Dates are July 12 - 19.  The camp is about 4 hours away, on the border between CT and RI.  Camp Yawgoog has a strong reputation as a camp that will engage the boys in activities and competitions all week.  For a high energy experience, be sure to sign up and join the troop for camp this week!

PLEASE NOTE:  Summer camp at Yawgood goes 7 nights (vs. our normal 6 nights).  Camp starts on a Sunday, and ends the following Sunday.  Make sure to put aside this date on your calendar!

Registration is open ... we are using registration just to get an idea of the number of scouts and adults who know they will be going.  Full registration materials and forms will be distributed in early 2015.

More information can be found out about the camp at:  http://www.yawgoog.org/
