Scout Skills

There are many resources to learn scout skills, but our Senior Patrol Leader Ruhaan Doshy and Assistant Senior Patrol Leader Shohum Raina created a "Scouting Skills Guide" to help our scouts learn/brush up on their scouting skills. All information in this presentation is taken directly from the scoutbook. Just click on the QR codes, and it will take you to a Google Doc or Youtube video.

On March 23, 2023, Troop 12 had their Court of Awards, where all scouts who either ranked up or earned a merit badge receives the respective badges of their award.

Troop 12 News Catch Up

 Hello Troop 12,

Recent Events - As many of you know, this month is a very active month. We have had our first troop outing in months, a day camp at Thompson Park, and we have many eagle scout projects coming our way. On September 27, 2020, life scout Kenneth Chao successfully completed his eagle scout project. Many Troop 12 members, scouts and adults all came together to contribute to this project. Plants were placed on the perimeter of a wonderful gazebo, and benches were built for the elderly to sit in and enjoy.

Upcoming Events - After this, we have Adityaa Suratkal, Troy Began, and Pranav Muralikrishnan's Eagle Scout projects. Make sure to stay tuned for updates, we need all the help we can get! We are also having an upcoming Court of Awards, something a lot of people have been waiting for a while.

Look below for the final product.

Stay safe,

Neel Raina

Never Forget - 9/11

Never Forget

Hello Troop 12. Today is a day of remembrance. Today we stand, praise, and remember the people of America who lost their lives in a tragic incident 19 years ago today. Today is a day of unity. We are grateful for those first responders who didn’t think twice to go out there to risk their lives for the people in danger. We should all be thankful for the first responders who put their lives on the lines for our safety. On September 11, 2001, everyone came together in unity. Everyone worked with each other to evacuate as many people as they could. This changed America forever, but this also gave us a wake up call and a lesson.
