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

Eagle Project: Nate Sullivan

Posted by bmoran on Jan 29 2023 - 11:20pm

I plan on having the first day of my Eagle Scout project on Saturday, February 4th. My project is focused on building bat houses to provide safe homes for the bat population at Lake Georgetown (which is conservation, for those who need conservation hours), and on Saturday we will build the houses. The workday will start at 12:00 pm and will likely end around 4 or 5. Food will be provided.

Updates on Will Moran's Eagle Project On May 29th at Twin Springs Preserve.

Posted by bmoran on May 21 2022 - 9:26pm

First of all, thank you to everyone who donated to my project and signed up to work on the 29th. I still need A LOT of help!

We will be making trail improvements at the Twin Springs Preserve in Georgetown, Texas. It will count as conservation hours. We will be fixing the footboards and adding a railing to a bridge, spreading mulch, building a bench and improving other parts of the trail. These improvements and additions to the preserve will help people enjoy the preserve, which is home to not one, but two endangered species: the Golden Cheeked Warblers and Salado Springs Salamanders.

Summer Camp Health, YPT forms and more

Many of you know that preparing for summer camp may take you a while whether it is selecting your merit badges,swim test, preparing your medical forms, documentation or fine tuning your packing list. Several of you may remember that Camp Alexander requires a little bit more medical information, signed forms, and of course Medical C signed by a doctor. Let me explain that a Scout Camp in Colorado is a little different than other places in the United States. They are considered a childcare facility under state law and have additional guidelines and regulations that the camp must follow to maintain their license. Much of these requirements are handled behind the scenes, however there are a few that directly impact your preparation to attend camp. The following will be required by every scout and adult attending camp.
