About Us

Scouts BSA Troop #230, Yardley, PA

Meetings: Every Tuesday 7:30 PM – 9:00 PM

Location & Sponsor: St. Ignatius Church, Yardley, PA.

Our Scouts- A proud “boy-led” troop, scouts attend Pennsbury, Neshaminy, Council Rock, private, religious, and home based schools. Over fifty scouts work as a team enjoying trips, special events, and community service projects.

Our boys have diverse interests. Some are football players, swimmers, rowers, robotics competitors, marching band members... Regardless of personal interests they come together in scouting.  Kudos to our sled team who placed in the 2019 Klondike Derby and to our 144 scouts who have earned the rank of Eagle over the last 51 years.

Our Parents: Patrol Leaders are supported by 25 moms and dads who make up our Scoutmaster Council and Business Committee.

The Great Outdoors: An active yearlong camping/hiking program brings us outside to develop skills and friendships. This summer we are excited to attend a summer camp in New York State with the whole troop, a special “adventure” camp for scouts 13 and older, and for the most adventurous, a hike up Mount Washington.

Amazing Activities: Besides summer camp, recent highlights include traveling to Washington, DC, spending a weekend at the NJ Coast Guard Base, camping/hiking Gettysburg, hiking the Appalachian Trail, canoeing down the Delaware, touring US Steel, and attending our annual ski trip. The list goes on…. Over the last year we have worked towards our disability awareness, first aid, hiking, biking, and aviation merit badges. We are looking forward to sailing for a week in the Florida Keys in 2020!

Troop 230 is part of the Tamanend district in the Washington Crossing Council.  Our troop is sponsored by St. Ignatius Church of Yardley, Pennsylvania.

The Troop is a welcoming and supportive environment. Come visit us!
