The annual Round Rock, Texas walk and community meeting is planned for Saturday, January 19.

The program includes music, a dance performance, speakers, devotions/prayers, and fellowship. We will update the information once we know of the firm plans.

GIRL TROOP AND BOY TROOP ENROLLMENT IN JANUARY AND FEBRUARY 2019!
Scouting BSA Girl Troop 531 and Boy Troop 53 will be forming in Round Rock in January and February. Scouting is open to youth in 6th grade or age 11 through high school or age 18. 2019 is the first year that Scouting BSA, formally Boy Scouts of America, opens access to girls in this iconic program for the older age group. Girls have been in Cub Scouting as den members for about a year.
See the post on this home page for more information. The troops’ representatives will be at Ridgeview and CD Fulkes campuses in January and February. Troop 53 (boys) need only one boy to form its troop. Its Scoutmaster is an Eagle Scout, originally from Chicago. Troop 531 is brand new, and there are two of the ten girls required to form the troop. As these are new troops, the families are able to set the tone for each troop going forward.
With the introduction of girl troops, this provides co-planning for camping activities where all youth in the 11-18 year old age group can advance when camping, attending merit badge workshops high adventure programs, etc.
