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

Religious Knot Opportunity

Posted by bmoran on Sep 26 2021 - 8:11pm

BSA offers opportunities for Scouts to earn a religious square knot through the PRAY program. This is the only knot that can be worn by youth on the Scout uniform. The PRAY program offers youth an opportunity to explore their own faith tradition and dive more deeply into a relationship with God. A Scout is Reverent. The program is not a part of Scouts BSA but is recognized by Scouting. There are programs for Catholics, Buddhists, Methodists, etc.

Enchanted Rock Campout is Coming Up! Shakedown Aug 30

Posted by bmoran on Aug 28 2021 - 9:02pm

With the Monday immediately preceding the Enchanted Rock campout being Labor Day, we won’t have a troop meeting. That means the shakedown for the campout will be two weeks prior on Aug 30. Please fill out the sign-up form ASAP (https://forms.gle/G4usqYGKGvU17FdH6) and bring your $15 for food to the Aug 30 meetings. Patrols will be choosing grubmasters and planning menus at the meeting.

Fall Conservation Weekend (formerly Hornaday Weekend) Registration Coming Soon

Posted by bmoran on Jul 18 2021 - 10:09pm

Hello Troop 157!

I have volunteered to coordinate the Troop 157 contingent to the Capitol Area Council’s fall conservation awards weekend (formerly Hornaday weekend) which is October 15-17 at Lost Pines Scout Reservation (LPSR) in Bastrop. This does conflict with the Troop’s scheduled October campout on Goose Island Beach, so scouts will need to choose one activity for that weekend.
