Sign up for Nov campout!

Posted on Nov 6 2020 - 4:42pm
Registration is now open for our first campout of the year- on Nov 14-15.  We are limiting this to a one night campout as we ease into camping with restrictions.  We will be camping at the Painovich family property west of Dripping Springs. This will be a one-night campout and social distancing/masks will be enforced including Scouts camping individually in tents and eating individual meals. We have missed our troop campouts and hope to see many of you join us for this one. Register by login on to the troop website and clicking on the calendar item for the campout and select "Register" .

454 Troop Videos

The Troop 454 family consists of a boys' and a girls' troop, offering scouting for the entire family. We draw scouts from different school districts throughout the greater Austin area, which means that 454 is also a great place for scouts to build new friendships and find community. With our emphasis on monthly camp outs, high adventure, and local and out of state summer camp options, 454 offers something for everyone!

In the next couple of weeks, I will be working with scouts to earn the STEM NOVA award "Start Your Engines".

Designing and building objects which move is a lot of fun! Since spring break Odin, Torin and I have worked on two projects. Click the links below to see two videos about our projects:
Mouse Trap Car
Race Car Robot

Are you interested in designing and building a moving model-vehicle, and in the process earn a STEM NOVA award? Reply now (hansw96@gmail.com) and let me know you're interested!

Our scouting calendar has been and will be affected by much of what is happening in the world with COVID-19. Our goal is to keep our troop scouting, although that may look a bit different as we make accommodations. Updates will come by e-mail and we'll be working to keep the website up to date with the latest happenings at the Remote Scouting & COVID-19 page in the left-side menu of the 454.org website
