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. Feel free to look around our site and by all means shoot us an email to learn more about the exciting world of Scouting at Troop 511.

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.

Troop 511 and Pack 511 will honor our Scouting sponsors by serving as greeters and ushers at Scout Sunday services Feb. 10. Scouts and Scouters should wear full Class A uniforms, except no hats or caps in church. Troop 511 will provide a color guard to enter flags and lead Pledge of Allegiance and Scout Oath prior to beginning of service. During the service four Scouts will receive BSA Religious Emblems recently earned. After the service, Troop 511 will host a reception for church members, with snacks, coffee and punch. Scouts should let church members go first in the refreshments line. Exemplary behavior by Scouts at this event will demonstrate our appreciation to our hosts for providing Troop 511's Scouting home.
