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 have been serving Southwest Austin's girls since 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.
New Unit Campout - March 30, 2019
Troop 19 will be attending the Capitol Area Council's New Unit Campout event at Lost Pines Scout Reservation on March 30, 2019. this special event will feature opportunities for Scouts to try their hands at archery, .22 rifle shooting, rock climbinb on Dok's Tower, stand-up paddleboarding, kayaking, and more. It's a super chance for new Scouts to see what LPSR has to offer!
Weekly Troop meetings will be held at St. Catherine’s of Siena beginning in February 2019. We will meet on Sundays at 1pm 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.
