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.

Sign-up for the February Backpacking Campout Now

If you plan to attend the February, please sign-up now. 

The Parks and Wildlife Department now requires an Event Attendee List be turned 10 days before the event. It can be updated when we arrive but it would really help me if it was filled out ahead of time. The headcount will also help ensure that we have enough drivers to get out there.
