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.

Troop Committee Chair: Emily Hansen

Boy Scout Summer Camp at Lost Pines (June 14-20)

Posted on Mar 5 2020 - 4:28pm

Summer Camp

Lost Pines Scout Reservation, Bastrop, Tx.
Dates: June 14-20

Summer Camp is at Lost Pines this year, in nearby Bastrop, TX.  It's a great opportunity to work on merit badges (including many Eagle-required badges), and is a great way for newer Scouts to immerse themselves in BSA Scouts and really become part of Troop 511.  There's also plenty of time to hang out and have fun!

Spec Ops 2020 Planning Meeting -- All Parents Invited! (Top Secret! NO Scouts!)

Posted on Mar 4 2020 - 3:37pm

What do "Middle Earth," "Mission to Mars" and "Marvel Universe" have in common? If you've been around Troop 511 since 2014, then you would know that these are the last three themes for the epic and amazing Troop 511 Spec Ops campoutsFor those that aren't aware, every two years our Troop parents put on a "Special Operations" campout in December. It's a Troop 511 tradition! This is the one campout that the boys do not plan in any way and is a complete surprise for them -- everything from the location, to the theme, to the food, to the fun activities are unknown until they arrive on Friday night. It's our treat to them and we go all out! 2020 is a "Spec Ops" year! The campout this year is projected for the weekend of December 4-6.

Merit Badge Opportunity on May 2 - Save the Date!

Posted on Feb 19 2020 - 10:11am

Did you miss the UT Merit Badge University last weekend because you were at the Space Center Campout? Do you want the chance to earn more Merit Badges? The Spring 2020 Alamo Council (San Antonio) Merit Badge University is coming up May 2! Scouts will be able to earn up to four merit badges. The program includes a number of Eagle-required badges, plus some merit badges that are not readily available elsewhere (Birding! Oceanography!). It seems to be very big and successful -- over 60 classrooms get used at St. Mary's, and they say they pull in Scouts from all of south and central Texas, and from as far away as Laredo and Oklahoma.
