Welcome to Troop 157!

Boy Scout Troop 157 in Round Rock, TX carries a long tradition of providing a quality scouting program for area youths. As part of the Chisholm Trail District, Troop 157 is active in the promotion and participation of many area scouting events including summer/winter camps, Webelos Woods, High Adventure, Cavalcade, Jamborees and many more.

Our troop stresses the importance of the camping experience with planned monthly camp outs during the fall, winter and spring. Every camp out includes a program that's geared towards the growth and personal development of our scouts. Not only do they learn skills which will help them throughout their lives, they have a whole lot of fun too!

Lastly, we are a youth led troop, so our scouts begin to develop leadership skills early on. Many earn the rank of Eagle; most go on to complete their college education; all of them develop friendships and positive memories that last a lifetime.

We meet at 7:00 PM most Mondays at:

First United Methodist Church
Family Life Center (near the west-most parking lot)
1004 N. Mays
Round Rock, TX 78680

David Moran's Eagle Project

Posted by bmoran on Nov 21 2021 - 10:13am

Hello Troop 157! My name is David Moran. I am a Life Scout and the Troop's SPL. I am having my Eagle Project this December. I am planning on building 60 feet of gabion baskets, which prevent erosion and redirect water. I am planning on building the gabions at my house on a separate build day, then transporting them, and filling them with delivered rock. I will be doing my Eagle Project at the Gault Archaeological Site in Florence. The Build Day is scheduled to be on December 11th, and the day where we fill the gabions with rocks will be on December 18th, just after school gets out. There will also be a camping option for Friday Night. Below are a GoFundMe and a Google Form if you would like to help me out.

Options for making activity payments to the troop

Posted by bmoran on Nov 21 2021 - 10:12am

There are several ways to pay for summer camp:

Preferred Options:

1. Zelle Transfer: You can create a Zelle account at www.zellepay.com and link it to your bank accounts. Like Venmo, Zelle allows direct transfer payment to/from your Checking or Savings (but without the incurred fees of Venmo). Most banks support Zelle, but you should check with your bank first.

Canoe Campout Info

Posted by bmoran on Oct 31 2021 - 9:25pm

The November canoeing campout is coming up and I know people are starting to ask questions so we wanted to get some info out sooner than later. There are a few differences from our "normal" campouts. It will be more like our typical backpacking campouts, but we'll have canoes to carry our gear, not our backs. Here is the sign-up form and the plan:

Eagle Project, Nov 6, 8-11 am

Posted by bmoran on Oct 31 2021 - 12:44am

Howdy troop! My name is Jack Saeger, and I’ve been with the troop for 6 years. I’m doing my Eagle project next Saturday (same weekend as the campout), from 8-11 am in the median on the corner of great oaks drive and park drive. I am planting 9 trees, replacing the ones that were killed in February’s ice storm. I ask that if you’re a scout that can help out please wear your class-b t-shirt or somewhat of a high-visibility shirt since we’ll be in the median between traffic.
