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

SUMMER CAMP 2021 IDEAS NEEDED!

Posted by bmoran on Oct 20 2020 - 8:20am

It's time to do some research on where we should go for Summer Camp 2021. The guidance from the Troop Committee is that we should keep closer to home than we've done lately. It's about reducing travel time. There are LOTS of great camps in Texas. From historic Worth Ranch on the Brazos River to BTSR in the Davis Mountains to Lost Pines in our own backyard of Bastrop. Do some searching online and see what looks interesting to you. Submit your ideas!

Troop Historian Report

September 2020

Historian Report-Miguel Perez

After six months of not being together, in September, several members of the Troop got together to mountain bike on the Brushy Creek trail while being socially distanced. Some scouts took the advanced trails and some scouts went on the beginner trails. The ride was tough for some of the scouts but everyone finished and had a good time. After the ride, some scouts gathered to help David Z. work on his Eagle project at a park in Avery Ranch. Scouts repaired picnic tables, sanded the tables and repainted them. Everyone wore their mask and did a good job. Once the tables are finished, David will install a little library and fill it with books so people can sit and read at the park. We ended the month with our first ever drive-in style Court of Honor. The meeting was also shared on Zoom. We were going to stay in our cars and get out when our name was called but most of the troop ended up sitting outside spaced apart. We all gathered in the church parking lot to see the new trailer and get our badges, awards and rank pins. Adults and scouts voted for OA. We wore masks, had bags of snacks and saw a slide show. Grant Dzurenko was recognized because he has almost earned every badge.
