Troop 230, Penfield, NY - Celebrating 63 years of Scouting!

The Boy Scouts of America will prepare every eligible youth in America to become a responsible, participating citizen and leader who is guided by the Scout Oath and Law.

Please contact us to learn more and join us in Scouting...

Boy Scout Troop 230 was chartered by The First Baptist Church of Penfield in 1959.  It has a long history of serving the youth of Penfield.  We are boy-led Troop advised and assisted by adult volunteers.  We develop the leaders of tomorrow.

We meet Wednesday nights from 7:00 - 8:30 during the school year.  Actvities include:

  • Camping at our own 37 acre property near Canadice
  • Weekend camping at Council owned properties: Babcock-Hovey, Cutler, and Massawepie
  • Weekend camping trips to other points of interest in the surrounding area
  • Week long summer camp at a scout camp
  • Service projects in the community

The Boy Scouts of America is one of the nation's largest and most prominent values-based youth development organizations. The BSA provides a program for young people that builds character, trains them in the responsibilities of participating citizenship, and develops personal fitness.

For nearly a century, the BSA has helped build the future leaders of this country by combining educational activities and lifelong values with fun. The Boy Scouts of America believes — and, through nearly a century of experience, knows — that helping youth is a key to building a more conscientious, responsible, and productive society.
