Cleanup at Edith Stevens Memorial Preserve North Edison Community Service 02/11/24

Hello Troop 12,

Earlier today, there was a community service opportunity at Edith Stevens Memorial Preserve North Edison. Thank you to Mr. Labot, Dhairya Joshi, and Tanmay Thorat for coming to help out! They picked and cleaned up trash for three hours to make our environment safer. We thank all our scouts and leaders for actively helping to bring our community together. Here are some pictures of the cleanup!

Stay tuned for more!

Troop 12 Updates

Happy New Years Troop 12!

Here are some updates from our last post! 

From our last Court of Honor on 12/21/23, many scouts have advanced in ranks and earned merit badges. Congratulations to all our scouts and we are very proud of all your accomplishments!

Summer Camp 2024

Summer is just around the corner and registration is available for all scouts to attend. This year's camp is "Camp Resica Falls" in Monroe County, Pennsylvania. The camp will take place the week of July 14th, 2024 - July 20th, 2024.

Remember to hand in your medical forms along with the payments required to go to summer camp. There is an Early Bird discount: $575 per Youth / $250 per Adult. You must submit this by 1-30/24.

For any more questions, please feel free to reach out to Mr. Thorat or Mr. Gowda.


We have been experiencing a lot of snow since the New Year, which means the weather has gotten a lot colder. Remember to bundle up when going outside and be careful of the ice.

Stay tuned for more updates!

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.
