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

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

Posted by bmoran on May 16 2022 - 11:38am

My project is making trail improvements at the Twin Springs Preserve in Georgetown, Texas. 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. My project will count as conservation hours, and I would really appreciate you guys coming out. Please click the sign up link to let me know you are coming! Thanks! Please consider donating to help me protect the park and improve access to the public. More information to follow.

Summer Camp Health, YPT forms and more

Posted by bmoran on May 13 2022 - 1:00pm

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.

Camporee Recap

Posted by bmoran on Apr 5 2022 - 11:42pm

BY NATE GRIM, TROOP HISTORIAN | The camporee was an interesting event. There were at least 7 troops there, the weather was nice, and the food was amazing. I am sure everyone agreed some times to do were shotgun, rifle, archery, bomb diffusing (not really), fingerprinting, climbing, rappelling, canoeing, and laser maze.

David Moran's Eagle Project

Posted by bmoran on Nov 21 2021 - 10:13am

Hello Troop 157! My name is David Moran. I am a Life Scout and the Troop's SPL. I am having my Eagle Project this December. I am planning on building 60 feet of gabion baskets, which prevent erosion and redirect water. I am planning on building the gabions at my house on a separate build day, then transporting them, and filling them with delivered rock. I will be doing my Eagle Project at the Gault Archaeological Site in Florence. The Build Day is scheduled to be on December 11th, and the day where we fill the gabions with rocks will be on December 18th, just after school gets out. There will also be a camping option for Friday Night. Below are a GoFundMe and a Google Form if you would like to help me out.

Options for making activity payments to the troop

Posted by bmoran on Nov 21 2021 - 10:12am

There are several ways to pay for summer camp:

Preferred Options:

1. Zelle Transfer: You can create a Zelle account at www.zellepay.com and link it to your bank accounts. Like Venmo, Zelle allows direct transfer payment to/from your Checking or Savings (but without the incurred fees of Venmo). Most banks support Zelle, but you should check with your bank first.
