Chartered in 1916, Troop 12 is an active, organized troop located in Jacksonville, FL as a part of the Sabol (previously Riverbend) District of the North Florida Council.

All of our adult leaders trained for their positions through the BSA, and many of them have completed additional training. Our troop has leaders trained in BSA-certified lifeguards, BSA NRA Rangemasters, and CPR/AED training.

We also boast leaders trained in Leave No Trace, Climb On Safely, Weather Hazards, Safety Afloat, Safe Swim Defense, and Paddle Craft Safety as well as many Merit Badge counselors.

Our philosophy is balance: for those who want to get their Eagle, we provide many opportunities such as monthly campouts, service projects, and merit badge classes. We also are happy to have those Scouts who just want to be a Scout and have a great camping experience.

Quotes from Baden-Powell

"All about me are boys. They are the makers of history, the builders of tomorrow. If I can have some part in guiding them up the trails of Scouting, on to the high road of noble character and constructive citizenship, I may prove to be the most important man in their lives, the most important man in my community.

A hundred years from now it will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in, or the kind of car I drove. But the world may be different because I was important in the life of a boy."  Forest E. Witcraft (1894 - 1967)
