Troop 19 has been created specifically to offer a Troop for girls ages 11 to 18 in Southwest Austin who want to enjoy the challenges and adventures of the new Scouts BSA program for girls. We will be ready to receive new Scouts starting in February 2019
For more info on the program and its goals, please visit www.scouting.org/scoutsbsa/
We have fun! We also strive to be the model Troop envisioned by Lord Baden-Powell (founder of the World Scout Movement) in 1908...except this time it's for girls! A model Troop emphasizes:
Troop 19's adult volunteers are experienced Scouters who have a vision of the model troop and the training to make it come to life. We promote Scout leadershp from all of our girls but especially those girls aged 13 and up.
Troop 19 Informational Session on January 6, 2018
Are you interested in Scouts BSA for girls? Starting in February 2019, girls ages 11 through 17 can join all new troops for girls. Go kayaking, camping, hiking, rock climbing and more while developing skills and friendships that will last a lifetime. Troop 19, chartered by St. Catherine of Siena, will be hosting an informational session on Sunday, January 6th from 4-5:30 in Siena Hall. Stop by to learn more and register!
Weekly Troop meetings will be held at St. Catherine’s of Siena beginning in February 2019. We will meet on Sundays at 4pm at St Catherine's.
Troop campouts will occur every month except June, July, and August. During these summer months, Scouts will have the opportunity to attend one or more week-long summer camps. Merit Badge camps will be available for all Scouts, while Scouts 14 and older will have the opportunity to challenge themselves at a high adventure camp.
Court of Honor ceremonies, in which we recognize Scout achievement, will be held 3-4 times per year.
If your daughter is interested in Scouting in SW Austin, we would love to hear from you.
