Welcome to Boy Scout Troop 230!


Troop 230 welcomes you to our website.  Please explore the different information about our troop and its activities.  Troop 230 is part of the Tamanend district in the Washington Crossing Council.  Our troop is sponsored by St. Ignatius Church of Yardley, Pennsylvania.

Please join us on Tuesdays 7:30 P.M. at St. Ignatius Church in Yardley, PA. 

The troop strives to live by the scout oath, law and motto through its 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.

Family Canoe Trip

Posted on Apr 25 2016 - 1:45pm

Please note we are short of adult leaders who have the necessary certifications (e.g. BSA safe swim defense, Safety Afloat, etc.) to run the Family Canoe Trip on Memorial Day weekend.  Three or more certified key leaders have family events that conflict with that weekend.  Any adults who are considering going on that trip and are willing to take a leadership role please contact our scoutmaster Jodi Litus.  If we cannot establish the proper leadership for that weekend, we may need to push it back to a weekend in June.  We will try to keep you updated as decisions are made.  Thanks for your patience and assistance.

First Aid-O-Ree Report

  What a perfect weekend for camping and a first aid competition.  A team of eight scouts led by Blaze L. and Zack K. easily completed challenging stations such as CPR, carries, water rescue, and traumatic injuries.  Working as a well put together unit they earned perfect or near perfect scores throughout the day.

Boot Camp April 23 - 24

Posted on Apr 18 2016 - 11:47am

This camp is especially geared toward new scouts in the troop to teach them the basics of camping and scouting, and to assist them in beginning the process of advancement.  The goal is to be certain by the end of this trip the young scouts have reached the rank of "Scout," and have made good progress toward completing many of the requirements of Tenderfoot.
