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 Playwicki district in the Washington Crossing Council, formerly called the Bucks County Council in 2014.  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.

Troop Meeting with EMT at St. Ignatius

At next weeks meeting on the 24th, we will be seeing several EMTs who will teach us about first aid and show us other fun things like CPR dummies and maybe even a look inside an ambulance. The meeting has been planned by Capt. E. Gross of the Penndel Middletown Emergency Squad. However, there has been a change in plans and the meeting will now be taking place at St. Ignatius at the usual time from 7:30 to 9. Sorry for the miscommunication and thank you for your cooperation. I hope to see you there.

Wilderness Survival Camping Trip

Posted on Nov 17 2015 - 9:59pm

This weekend, 14 scouts from Troop 230 ventured out into the deep woods of the Ockanickon Scout Reservation for a wilderness survival weekend. These scouts build shelters from only sticks, branches and a copious amount of leaves. One group of scouts built a mansion type shelter suitable for 8 to 10 individuals, picture above, while other scouts built more conservative shelters. In either case, these scouts learned the importance of team work and techniques for surviving in a wilderness environment in near freezing temperatures. These scouts also learned techniques for cooking on open fires without any cookware or utensils.

We are also proud of our scouts for supporting the Ockanickon Acorn Project. The goal of this project is to help nature to restore the woods of the scout reservation which was severely damaged by Hurricane Sandy.
