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

Church Service Project opportunity

Posted by bmoran on Jan 31 2021 - 8:51pm

The church is building beds for children who are sleeping on the floor. There are several ways to volunteer. Please see below. This is not a Troop event but hours will count as service project hours. This also is not a drop off your child and leave event. The opportunity is for families to work together as an independent COIVID-19 unit. Delivery drivers are also needed and you can also make a financial donation. All of the details and registration information is on the church website. You must fill out a waiver and of course mask are required. Parents should read everything carefully.

This is the week we celebrate Thanksgiving. Although 2020 is not like other years we should find things to be thankful for even if we can't celebrate it traditionally.
