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.
