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

Lost Pines Online Summer Camp registration

Posted by bmoran on May 24 2020 - 11:56pm

The Troop has signed up for the Lost Pines Online Summer Camp.

https://www.bsacac.org/activities/summer-camp/

Lost Pines is managing these merit badge classes much as it would a regular camp - meaning - the Troop registers the Scouts and signs them up for the merit badges they would like to take. Classes will run Monday-Thursday, with a closing campfire Thursday night. The cost is: $20 per merit badge ($40 for Eagle Quest and First Aid).

Howdy. The troop committee met Thursday and reviewed the information we have from Camp Woodruff in Georgia and the Capital Area Council and decided that the troop will not be attending Camp Woodruff this summer. We have notified the camp and should receive a full refund in the next month or so.

UPDATE:
At this point, we are working under the assumption that summer camp will not be cancelled this year. To that end, we need to get our Scouts registered for merit badges. The registration date has been pushed to give troops additional time to gather this info … our new registration date is April 21st …
