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.

Lehigh River Gorge Bike Hike - Aug 14 - 16

Posted on Jul 28 2015 - 11:59am

Come ride with us Aug 14 - 16 as we bike through the beautiful Lehigh River Gorge.  You will ride 25 miles along a deep, steep-walled gorge carved by the Lehigh River, thick vegetation; rock outcroppings and waterfalls characterize Lehigh Gorge State Park. The park follows the river from White Haven at the northern end to the town of Jim Thorpe at the southern end of the park with a very slight downhill grade of an abandoned railroad bed.  We will camp at nearby Hickory Run State Park.  Sign-up on the calendar is open!  See attachments for more information.

This is a family friendly event, so parents and older siblings are welcome to join.  Any siblings of course need to be able to bike the 25 mile length, and have a parent to keep an eye on them in case they fall behind.  Any questions ask Joe Sites or Tom Lorandeau.

Tuesday Meeting Notice - Housekeeping Help Needed

Posted on Jul 27 2015 - 6:42pm

There will be no formal troop meeting this Tuesday as our senior scouts are on their annual Venture Patrol Trip to the Rocky Mountains National Park in Colorado.  We will, however, be sponsoring an event at St. Ignatius to do some housekeeping in the troop room and trailer, taking stock of equipment, and generally using the nice weather to clean up.  So we are looking for some volunteers to attend on Tuesday to help in this effort, starting at 7:30 pm.  If you come, please wear work clothes - no uniforms.  This event will be led by ASM Joe Sites.

Summer Camp Medical Forms are Due

Posted on Jul 6 2015 - 7:22pm

If you are an adult or scout going to summer camp, you need to fill out a physical (aka medical) form, have your doctor sign it, and hand it to Eric Liebowitz.  We suggest you keep the original and provide a copy.  The attached medical form can be filled out on a computer and then printed and signed by your scout's doctor.  If you wish to scan in the signature page and hand the medical form in electronically, you can email Eric Liebowitz the filled out form.  His email can be found in the Troop Roster, found in the left menu bar.  Otherwise please hand the form to Eric at regular Tuesday night meetings.

You will not be allowed to go to summer camp unless you have had a doctor check-up within a year from June 2015.
