FAQ

Are there any openings?

Yes! We are forming sections and groups right now (Winter 2017).  We anticipate starting our year in March 2017, though it will depend on finding enough adult leaders. If you’re interested in joining us, please fill out our Contact Form or email us at info@12thchinook.org

How do I register?

Contact us, or attend our Open House on Wednesday, February 8, 2017 from 6:30-8pm at the Midland Library — 805 SE 122nd, Portland, Oregon.

What are the registration fees?

We offer a sliding scale based on what a family can afford. A typical annual fee for one youth scout is $85 if a family/scout is in a position to pay that. Minimum fee for adult Rovers is $30 for a BPSA background check, which must be completed before a Rover may lead a section.

Scholarships are available, no questions asked. No one will be turned away for inability to pay. 

When, where, and how often will the 12th meet?

Depending on availability of adult leadership, scout meetings are usually held on the first and third Sundays of each month; locations vary depending on activity. We will always try to meet outdoors in the East Portland or East Multnomah County vicinity.

When did we start?

We anticipate starting March 2017, though many of our members have been scouting with BPSA for a couple of years.
