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

Pedernales Falls Campout Recap

Posted by bmoran on Mar 7 2020 - 11:55pm

The Troop went to Pedernales falls state park last weekend. The drive there wasn't too far, and only took about one and a half hours. When we got there, there wasn't enough parking, so some people had to park in the excess parking area. On Saturday morning, we went on a 2-mile hike and saw the falls itself! It was very beautiful. We had about an hour of free time until we did the merit badge sessions. We picked either geocaching or orienteering. most scouts participated in geocaching. For dinner, we had an international food competition. The Nuclear Ninjas won the competition, making fish n' chips with British tea, and some English cookies. We had a great time at campfire. The Arctic Wolves won the skit competition. All the skits were very enjoyable! The troop retired about 50 U.S flags.

Inks Lake Camp out Recap

Posted by Hunter Biegert on Feb 10 2020 - 8:06pm

The troop camped at Inks Lake and had a GREAT time. On Saturday, we drove to the Longhorn Caverns, which was about six miles away, and spend the day spelunking (see pictures). When we got back, we roleplayed Star Wars scenes with lightsabers that some scouts brought. The Nuclear Ninjas made hamburgers for dinner and made the burgers pinker than they were originally were. All of the patrols did a great job on their skits at the campfire. That night, one scout reported that there was a big, gaping hole in a troop tent. The hole was about 5 inches wide in diameter. On Sunday morning, the scouts had plenty of free time and some played card games. Overall, the scouts had a great time having fun exploring the caves!
