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.

Rank Advancement / Board of Reviews

Posted on Aug 31 2015 - 11:23pm

All scouts who wish to advance in rank in time to receive acknowledgement at the September 29 (NEW DATE) Court of Honor must let Mr. Litus and/or Mr. Swanicke know of your interest so a Scoutmaster Conference and Board of Review can be conducted.  Opportunities for Scoutmaster Conferences and Boards of Review will be available during our meetings in September.  We encourage scouts to ask to get into the schedule at or prior to the first meeting in September, in person or by email to Messrs. Litus and Swanicke.  Jodi Litus <jlitus@verizon.net>;  Russ Swanicke <swanicke@hotmail.com>

Yardley-Makefield Library Service Project - Today

Posted on Aug 10 2015 - 3:59pm

The Yardley-Makefield Library Friends are preparing for their big August book sale.Once again we're hoping the Scouts can lend a hand with the sale set-up.
Some help will be needed on Monday, August 10th from 1-4 pm.  We'll be setting up tables and bookshelves and, maybe, begin moving in a few boxes of books.  But Tuesday, August 11th is the more important date.  On that day we will move in all the boxes of books from the back room and the outside shed.  We will start at 10 am, break for lunch at 12 (free pizza and drinks), and resume work until finished.  We hope we can count on you and the boys again.  Gratefully,  Jerry StanleyFriends of the Yardley-Makefield Library
