New to Troop 12?

It's not easy coming to a new troop and meeting many new people, but it is easy to become accustomed to what we do at Troop 12.
This is a boy-led troop, so if you have a question, then the best answers you can get will come from a fellow scout. Basic things you need to know however, are in this section.

Here is our latest welcome information for incoming WEBELOS.  Once a member or the troop you will receive information about our Dynamic WEBELOS Bridging Program for new scouts.  Also, see our Wonderful WEBELOS Resources below:

Keep in mind that this is a boy-led troop. this means that although there are adult leaders present, the troop is run and coordinated by the scouts (for the most part). If you are coming from another troop, then this might be confusing. After coming to a few meetings though, you will be fine.  Should you indeed elect to transfer to a new troop a transfer form is needed.

Completely new to scouting? This is the place to be!

This is the traditional Scouting experience for young men in the fifth grade through high school. Service, community engagement, and leadership development become increasingly important parts of the program as youth lead their own activities and work their way toward earning Scouting’s highest rank, Eagle Scout. There are currently 855,000 Boy Scouts and 485,000 adult volunteers in the United States.
