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.

Last Sunday was the first day of my project, and it went exceptionally well, and I appreciate the people who came out to help and make it a success. We removed the invasive plants and planted well over 200 plants.

How can I plan if I can't find the form?

After spending 10 minutes to find the trip planning form and duty roster on the website I have moved them under Files » Camping, Hiking & High Adventure >> Planning so they are (hopefully) easier to find. The Duty Roster Form has also been updated.
