Troop 201 Austin TexasWe are Boy Scout Troop 201 in Austin, Texas. Our scouts live in Steiner Ranch, Riverplace, Grandview Hills, Westminster Glen, Long Canyon, Glenlake, Marshall Ford, 4-Points and the Mansfield Dam area but we are open to any BSA-registered youth that wants to be part of an active and exciting troop. Come join us!

Summer Camp Fundraising Dinner

Our thanks to everyone that purchased tickets, cooked, waited tables, and otherwise contributed to our Summer Camp fund raising dinner. The event was a great success and the participating scouts raised, in total, over $700 that will help defray the cost of traveling to Upstate New York for summer camp.

Camp starts on 20-July, so we look forward to it!

Sure, Scouts spend a lot of time on familiar things like camping and earning merit badges, but you might not know that they also put a lot of time and effort into helping their communities.  In 2013 alone, Boy Scouts of America spent 9.3 MILLION hours in service to their communities, just on Eagle Scout Service Projects alone! 

Likewise, the Scouts in Troop-201 undertake several community service projects each year, both Eagle projects and more routine community service events. Our Eagle Scout projects are usually designed to create something new, like Addison’s elaborate project to build a rainwater collection system for the Mobile Loaves and Fishes homeless housing project that is currently underway. But, for our routine service projects, we like to join in with other organizations, like Brown Santa or Coats For Kids to amplify the "good turns" we can accomplish on our own.

Each year, Troop 201 makes the trek to the Lost Pines Scout Ranch shooting range for some experience with shotgun and rifle. It was a busy campout and we didn't get many photos as a result. But, here's one of Dylan just minutes before he took his first shot with a shotgun...and hit the clay! Mason, in the foreground, is an old pro.

Later several boys explored the woods with the camp master's dog whie others worked on some of those hard-to-get rank requirements.

Here's the group of Troop 201 scouts that attended the recent Hornaday weekend. Hornaday is a great way to earn a bunch of merit badges!

Camp TexLake camp site

It was a typical (read hot, humid) September weekend but that didn't stop the scouts and leaders from Troop-201 from having a wonderful campout at Camp TexLake this weekend.  The foocus of this campout was on rank advancement, especially for the younger scouts that needed those hard-to-get requirements like hiking, fire-starting, cooking and first aid.

This campout was sponsored by the Aztecs Patrol and managed by Zack M., Colin B., Andrew H. and Will R. What a joy to see this patrol show wonderful leadership skills!
