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 has produced more than 125 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 in Huffman Hall on the St. Matthews campus.  We love to have guests any time.  Some meetings are more interesting for visitors to come to, so feel free to send us email if you're wondering which night would be best for you to come and check out out Troop 511.

Registration Open: Sept Beach Campout

Posted on Aug 19 2017 - 9:15am
Hi Folks,

The beach campout planned for Mustang Island state park is only 4 weeks away and is posted on Troop 511 webpage (September 15th – 17th).  Mustang Island State Park is about 4 - 4.5 hours from St. Matthews.  I am asking all adults and scouts who are planning on attending to register as early as they can so we will know if we have transportation issues.  

Tues. Aug. 15, 2017 Barton Springs Swim/Snorkeling Practice/HOT DOG! --arrive early ~6:30pm

Posted on Aug 11 2017 - 4:02pm

Brace yourself! Jump right in; it's easier than wading in a little at a time. Tuesday, Aug. 15, Troop 511 Scouts, Scouters and families will meet at Barton Springs to swim, practice snorkeling in advance of our April 2018 snorkeling trip down the San Marcos River, and enjoy hot dogs courtesy of Mrs. Emily Hansen. Arrive early around 6:30 if you can. Bring mask, snorkel and fins if you've got them, or goggles if you don't, and check out the fish, turtles, crawdads and aquatic vegetation in cool, clear Barton Springs. Parking is easier in the backside lot off Robert E. Lee. If you bring a combination lock, you can stash your dry clothes in a locker in the dressing room. Miss Emily will serve hot dogs outside the pool area right after our swim. Be COOL at the POOL! Don't be square... BE THERE!!!
