Wind Caves always a favorite and the troop went back to Gettysburg for the first time in a few years!
In a coupe of weeks, we have two crews leaving for New Mexico to tackle the high adventure of Philmont!
New Scouts & Families:
This year we welcomed 10 new scouts to our Troop along with their families.
Again, welcome to all the newest scouts and their families and thank you for those that are already helping out by volunteering their time! Many hands make light work.
As a reminder per the new Scouts BSA rule starting September 1st, to go on a campout as an adult you will need to be a registered member of Scouts BSA. More information to come, and in the meantime if you have any additional questions please reach out to myself or Mr. Aiken.
Troop 30 will be joining the community to celebrate Memorial Day by marching in the Parade.
It’s going to start at the old Avon Grove high school at 9:00 AM by turning left onto State Road, then right on Prospect Avenue, then turning right on West Evergreen where it ends at the Veterans Memorial where the ceremonies will take place.
Our sponsoring church, West Grove Presbyterian, hosts a party to help commemorate the holiday at the church.
Memorial Day is a day where we honor those heroes who have made the ultimate sacrifice in service to this country. We hope to see you all there.
On April 21st Troop 30 drove out to Gettysburg for our early spring camping trip. We all had a lot of fun!
Saturday morning we hiked in the Gettysburg National Military Park. There were lots of monuments and cannons to see. There is so much history in Gettysburg you could spend days walking around.
In the afternoon we went to the Gettysburg Visitors Center where we toured the building and learned so many new facts. We were also treated to a movie narrated by Morgan Freeman called A New Birth of Freedom.
Unfortunately we got rained out on Saturday so we had to quickly pack up and leave for home.
All in all the scouts had another great adventure as Troop 30!
Hello everyone, this is Lloyd here, your former webmaster.
As of the 9th of November, I have officially aged out of Troop 30. Thus, it is time to transfer ownership of the website and all future posts to someone new. In this case, it will be easy – my brother, Joseph. Hopefully the site prospers in the years to come under his leadership.
Thank you for the support across the many years I have managed this site. Here’s to many years to come for troop30bsa.org!
Despite the times we live in that doesn’t put an end to camping. During the week of the 18th-19th scouts across the council set up campfires and slept under the stars right in their own backyards. Here are some of the highlights our troop showed off!
Hey everyone, I hope that you guys are staying safe during this time.
I’d like to remind that we still in fact are going forward with scouting, however we just won’t be able to meet up for now.
Zoom calls every week will be held to have meetings and keep people caught up with things that they can do. There are also many merit badge opportunities from many of our counselors that would be beneficial for moving up the ranks, including ones required for Eagle!
Be sure to check your email regarding eligible merit badges, Zoom meeting times, and any other beneficial information.
