Troop 124 -- Beaverton, Oregon


Troop 124 celebrates it's 42nd birthday this year!  Historically one of the larger troops in the Portland Metro area, it currently serves approximately 60 Scouts and is blessed with an abundance of adult volunteers.  St. Matthew Lutheran Church is the chartering organization.

We meet weekly at 7:00 PM Monday evenings in St. Matthew's Lower Fellowship Hall.  Parent meetings are held the first Monday of each month during the troop meetings.

We go camping every month -- rain, mud, snow or shine.

Quoting Scoutmaster Ken Mattson, "It's called scOUTING for a reason!"

Troop Vision

As leaders of Troop 124 we envision a high performing, boy-led troop. We are together as one unit completing the goal at hand while having fun. We see Scouts who actively participate in proper uniform and function efficiently in their patrols. We will conjure personal growth and rank advancement at performing levels. We see efficient communication throughout the troop and see its leaders effectively using their training while abiding by theScout Oath and Law.
