Welcome to Troop 49!
Important message regarding COVID-19:
As we have begun to see positive cases of Covid-19 Coronavirus show up in Austin, and as the city and schools are ramping up their safety measures, it is time for us to be proactive as well. Based on a discussion with Troop leaders and being for the health and safety of our Troop, we are cancelling all further Troop 49 meetings and events for the rest of March. That means that Court of Honor will have to be postponed, hopefully to a date in April. High Adventure shakedowns on Saturdays in March are also called off. We want to make sure that we are being safe, and are prepared and proactive in our response. We will keep everyone updated regarding further meetings in April as we get closer and have a clearer picture of what's going on by then.
Troop 49 and our sister Troop 490 meet at 7:00 pm every Tuesday at Faith Lutheran Church, located at 6600 Woodrow Avenue.
We have around 20 scouts and almost as many adult leaders. Our troop is active, run by scouts, and delivers a year-round program which includes monthly campouts, service projects, merit badge opportunities, and lots of fun.
We encourange a highly trained adult support system that has the skills and know-how to accomodate scouts on their journey toward excellence. We strive to lead by example and allow the scouts to determine their own path of leadership and achievement.
If Troop 49 or Troop 49 º interests you, please contact the leadership.
2020 Candy Cane Fundraiser
In December, these Candy Canes will be seen gracing many a lawn in the Brentwood Neighborhood of Austin. These unique holiday decorations come from Scout Troop 49. Local scouts & family members labor over multiple meetings and weekends to make these beautiful decorations from common hardware store supplies. These candy canes are a great way to show your sense of community, holiday spirit, & support of Troop 49 with a single gesture.
Troop 49 Candy Canes are $65, $75 including installation, and will be delivered & installed beginning the Saturday after Thanksgiving.
