Troop 12 History
  • Troop 12 has a long history of tradition dating all the way back to September 1949, when it was founded in Eugene, OR at
    St. Mary Catholic Church.

  • In the late 1990’s, Troop 12 had to cease operations due to lack of adult volunteers.

  • Twenty-five years later, a committee was formed to bring back Troop 12, with the goal of providing a faith-focused Troop for Cub Scout Pack 12 Scouts to cross over into and seamlessly continue their BSA Scouting journey.

  • With the help of Oregon Trail Council and St. Alice Catholic Church-- Troop 12 launched during the middle of the 2020 Coronovirus pandemic.

  • Troop 12 was officially chartered on March 26, 2020 and held its formal Charter Ceremony on Oct. 11, 2020 at St. Alice Catholic Church.
