Welcome to the BSA Troop 230 Website

BSA Troop 230’s program revolves around the great outdoors.  We are a backpacking troop and will start hitting the trail in March and go until November.  Most of our backpacking has been on the Appalachian Trail in Southeastern Pennsylvania.  We average 5-7 hikes per year with at least 3 of them being overnight trips or longer.  Recently we have completed a 14 mile hike on the Pinchot Trail in Lackawanna County in the Pocono’s.  Some other trails that we have hiked are Ricketts Glen, French Creek, Hickory Run State Park, and Monacacy Hill, a very local trail that is approximately 5 miles of various terrain and small challenges along the way as to not discourage the boys.  This is a great way to introduce the boys to hiking. 

Free First Aid

Posted on Feb 19 2018 - 8:01pm

When the First Aid Meet was switched to a day trip it became a free event. 

The cost from when it was a weekend event was accidentally left on the website when it was switched to a day trip. That has been fixed. Apologies for the mistake.

Registration for bowling on 2/19 closes on Monday 2/5. We need to know how many lanes to reserve. Limerick Bowl allows only so many bowlers per lane. If you are not registered on the website for this event there will be no space for you to participate.
