About Us

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 over 170 Eagle Scouts. Scouting plays a vital role in transforming today's boys into tomorrow's men, by emphasizing timeless values such as integrity, courtesy, and obedience. Scouting also provides the opportunity through various Merit Badges for boys to learn about their world including Citizenship In The Community/Nation/World, to learn skills such as Lifesaving, Emergency Preparedness and First Aid, and to get a taste of a wide variety of professions/occupations and hobbies. Finally, Scouting also provides opportunities for Community Service. And, Scouting is FUN!
