About Us


Troop 230, Penfield, NY - Celebrating 60 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...  "a game with a purpose"!

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 30 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.
