Welcome to Troop 12

Boy Scout Troop 12 in Appleton, Wisconsin, was originally chartered in 1930, and remained in existence until 2002.

In the spring of 2010, a group of Scouts and adults came together with a common goal: 

To revive Appleton's Troop 12... on the 80th anniversary of the Troop's founding, and the 100th anniversary of Boy Scouting!

Our Troop has been busy this summer voting on outings, electing Troop leaders, setting up the website, and deciding on new patrol names. For more information on Troop 12, please email our Scoutmaster at  

And for some inspiration, read The First Scouts article on the left side of this page.

We thank you for your interest, and look forward to building a terrific program with the boys... for the boys!!

Providing A Compass For Life

For over 100 years, Scouting programs have instilled in youth the values found in the Scout Oath and Scout Law. Today, these values are just as relevant in helping youth grow to their full potential as they were in 1910. Scouting helps youth develop academic skills, self-confidence, ethics, leadership skills, and citizenship skills that influence their adult lives.

The Boy Scouts of America provides youth with programs and activities that allow them to

  • Try new things.
  • Provide service to others.
  • Build self-confidence.
  • Reinforce ethical standards.

While various activities and youth groups teach basic skills and promote teamwork, Scouting goes beyond that and encourages youth to achieve a deeper appreciation for service to others in their community.

Scouting provides youth with a sense that they are important as individuals. It is communicated to them that those in the Scouting family care about what happens to them, regardless of whether a game is won or lost.

Finally, and perhaps most importantly, Scouting promotes activities that lead to personal responsibility and high self-esteem. As a result, when hard decisions have to be made, peer pressure can be resisted and the right choices can be made.

Troop Trailer

Troop 12 now owns it's own trailer.

  • Donations to finish paying for the trailer gladly accepted

The families of Appleton's Troop 12 THANK YOU!!!

Philmont Grace

For food, for raiment
For life, for opportunity
For friendship and fellowship
We thank thee, O Lord

3 million - Youth members currently registered

2.3 million - Merit badges earned each year

2 million - Scouts who have earned the Eagle Scout award

1.1 million - Registered adult leaders

1 - You, the most important Scout today. Learn skills, have fun, work on advancement, and be the best Scout you can.

That's the best birthday gift you can give the BSA and Troop 12 of Appleton, WI!
