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

We, the Patrol Leaders Council of Troop 124 envision a well-organized, boy-led troop where Scouts respect each other. We aim to prioritize rank advancement, unity within patrols and troop, discipline, and FUN. We will continue to live by the Scout Oath, Law, Motto, Slogan, and Outdoor Code while also continuing to have an outing every month and having and supporting a superb Varsity team. We expect Scouts to follow and cooperate with these goals while wearing a correct Scout uniform when appropriate, and embody the Spirit of Scouting.
