Welcome to Boy Scout Troop 511!

Welcome to Boy Scout Troop 511's web site. Boy Scout Troop 511 in Austin TX is sponsored by St. Matthew's Episcopal Church, and was founded in 1972. It is one of the larger troops in Central Texas and during its existence, it has produced more than 170 Eagle Scouts.

If you're interested in our troop, we encourage you to come visit us at one of our meetings. We meet every Tuesday at 7:00 p.m. in Huffman Hall on the St. Matthew's Episcopal Church campus. We love to have guests any time. Some meetings are more interesting for visitors to come to, so feel free to contact us if you're wondering which meeting would be best for you to come and check out out Troop 511.

Scoutmaster: Paul Clarke
Troop Committee Chair: Emily Hansen

Merit Badge Pamphlets Now Electronic!

Posted on Jul 22 2020 - 5:41pm
Though certainly not required, Merit Badge Pamphlets can be a really great resource for a Scout working on a Merit Badge. Each is a full-length booklet that covers almost everything a Scout needs to work on a given Merit Badge. BSA revises them regularly, and keeps them up to date and aligned with the current Merit Badge requirements. You can now get authorized electronic copies of  Merit Badge Pamphlets via Amazon, so all that great material is on hand immediately! Important Note: A Kindle device is needed to read the pamphlet. There's a free app. So if you want a pamphlet, you can buy, download and start learning!
