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.

Troop 230 Three Summer Activities Announced!

This summer we are offering three exciting outdoor programs. For boys 13 and older by July 7th, we will be venturing out on a week-long “Trek,” hiking 10 miles per day and picking special activities such as paintball, mountain boarding, fishing, tomahawk throwing, rappelling or climbing, canoeing, kayaking, or horseback riding (www.tenmileriver.org/trek).  The Trek being held from July 7 – July 13, will immediately proceed our regular summer camp week for scouts of all ages at Camp Keowa (www.tenileriver.org/ke) from July 14 to July 20. Scouts attending both weeks can stay overnight at Camp Keowa prior to the start of regular camp. Finally, for those scouts and parents looking for truly “high adventure” we are planning to hike Mount Washington (https://www.mountwashington.org) in New Hampshire: August 7 - 10. Those planning to participate in either the Trek or the Mount Washington trip must participate in a series of training hikes being hosted by Mr. Jones. Hikers can’t miss more than two of the planned hikes to be eligible for the trip(s). (There are no eligibility requirements for regular summer camp at Camp Keowa.) Further details on all of the trips and training hikes will be announced soon. A parent meeting about the Trek week will be hosted by Mr. Sites at 7:00 PM on Tuesday, January 22.
