BSA Troop 222 (The Fun Troop!)

Troop 222 is a Boy Scout troop dedicated to building character and leadership skills.

We promote an outdoor program which includes both regular camping and high adventure opportunities. Our Troop also believes in having as much FUN as possible while achieving our scouting goals.

Though we strive for every boy to become an Eagle Scout, the personality of our troop is definitely Easy Going. We have a mostly traditional program where camping, hiking, canoeing and the like are combined with skiing, white water rafting and our inter-troop football games.

We meet every Monday night 7:00 PM, at Advent Lutheran Church located at 1601 Green Lane in Westtown PA, and have weekend camp-outs and activities once a month. We are a medium size, Scout-Run troop which allows for plenty of Leadership opportunities. There are always Parent opportunities available within our troop, such as Committee membership, merit badge counselors, Activities and Advancement coordinators, Quartermaster and others.

Our members provide many hours of community service, are active in the Order of the Arrow and our home camp is Camp Horseshoe which is part of the Horseshoe Scout Reservation. Join us for camping, hiking, biking, skiing, canoeing and overall fun!

If you are interested in outdoor fun and would like to join our troop, come to one of our meetings or e-mail our Scoutmaster.

All WEBELOS and new scouts are welcome.

Rainy Hike

So what does Troop 222 do when it rains out a canoe trip to Mullica Rive campground? We go on a hike with some of our newer Scouts to Ridley Creek State Park!

Troop 222 Goes to West Point

What a great weekend with a great group of scouts at the United States Military Academy at West Point. It was even better visiting one of our scout’s brothers who is a senior at the Academy.
