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.

Five Miles Woods Community Service

Posted on Apr 24 2015 - 12:06pm

The Friends of Five Mile Woods have regular workdays for volunteers on the second Saturday of each month, March through October.  Scout and other community groups are encouraged to volunteer time in the Woods. Workdays start at 9 am and finish at noon.  Typical projects involve pruning vegetation off of the trails, trail lining, building and repair projects, and hosting public events.  We frequently take time out to enjoy and learn about the Woods and all of it’s fauna and flora. Work at Five Miles Woods counts as a community service time, and Five Miles Woods can be used as a sponsor for the Citizenship in the Community Merit Badge.  Any questions, be sure to ask any Scoutmaster.
