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.

UPDATE - May Family Campout - Emma Long Metropolitan Park

Posted on May 11 2016 - 8:13am

NEW LOCATION:  Emma Long Metropolitan Park

Why the new location? The troop has grown significantly in the past year and Canyon Lake would not provide the group camping and easy water access that we need. And with Troop 511 being Scout led, several Scouts in leadership positions were given a list of pros and cons of each location and were asked to make the final decision.

Please check your email or the troop website for the update.
