  • Report to the State 2018

    Celebrate the anniversary of the Scouting movement at the 69th annual Boy Scout Parade and Report to the State of Texas. Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Varsity Scouts, Venturers, Sea Scouts, Explorers, and STEM Scouts from all over Texas march up Congress Avenue to the Capitol. Scout Delegates from each council in Texas are seated in the House of Representatives and report to a member of the state government about Scouting accomplishments in their council from the past year.

    Downtown Austin will become a sea of Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Varsity Scouts, Venture Scouts, Sea Scouts, and Explorer Scouts from all over Texas marching up Congress Avenue to the Capitol. This is really an amazing event that showcases the magnitude of the brotherhood that our boys have joined as well as the diversity.  The energy from all the Scouts together in one place is really electric!

    We will be lining up on the Ann Richards Congress Ave Bridge.  Please arrive around 8am.  Traffic and parking surrounding the event can be challenging so please plan accordingly.  Below is a parking guide for the day.  I would suggest carpooling if possible. 

    This is a rain or shine event! Please dress accordingly.  We will be outside for an extended period so plan for all weather possibilities. As always water and snacks are also recommended.


    7:30-8:30 am Line up for Parade

    9:00 am Parade ‘Steps Off’ 9:30 am Eagle Scout Rededication Ceremony

    11:15 am Report to State Begins in House Chambers

    12:00 pm Report to State Concludes (Approximate Time)

    There are commemorative patches for the parade that can be purchased preorder for $8. The patch sales help fund $30,000 in parade expenses which include fees to the City of Austin, State of Texas, Austin Police Department, Capital DPS Officers, Traffic Control Plan, Barricade Services, Sanitation and youth recognition items.  This is something very small that we can do to contribute but it really goes a long way toward making this event a possibility.  I encourage everyone to purchase one!  Please add the patch to your RSVP. Remember that this will not guarantee a patch! 


    We’ve added the option to send payment via PayPal, please note that if pay from your checking account, no fee will added.  If you pay by credit card, there is an additional fee and in order to offset the PayPal fees, payment via PayPal will be slightly higher than paying by cash or check.

    Patches are $8.00 via PayPal with a debit card and $9.00 via credit card via PayPal to cover the convenience fee that PayPal charges the pack. Please remember to include the fee if you are using a credit card.  Please make payment no later than December 11, 2018 to ensure your patch order.

    This is not a drop off event.  All scouts must have a parent or other pre-authorized adult leader responsible for them throughout the entire event.

    Class A's are required!  We are representing scouting and must look our finest. That includes parents. Show that pack pride and wear your pack shirt!

  • Camp under the stars at Houston Space Center
    Scout families, camp under the stars!
    Scouts are courteous, trustworthy and helpful, so what better group to help launch our new Family Camp-Out program? We’re inviting you to be part of an exciting pilot on Oct. 28. This is a chance to sleep under a giant Boeing 747 and the space shuttle replica Independence with the stars overhead.
    Reserve your spot today:

    You and your family will navigate your own space exploration journey while engaging in science, technology, mathematics and engineering related activities. Build model rockets, explore robotics and train for spaceflight in our all new Family Camp-Out.

    Activities cover an array of difficulty levels to engage visitors of all ages. Explore robotics in our Robotics Challenge Arena where you can build a robotic hand, program and operate a rover and more. Build your own rocket and then see how high you can launch it. Train like an astronaut and learn about spacewalks, the speed of light and crew assembly. Tour Starship Gallery, home to multiple flown spacecraft, astronaut training models, one-of-a-kind artifacts and more. 

    You and your entire family can choose from two unique overnight camping experiences.
    Prefer to sleep in the great outdoors under the stars? Pack your tent and set up camp in Independence Plaza, right underneath the shuttle carrier aircraft NASA 905 and our high-fidelity shuttle replica Independence.
    Indoor campers can get in on the fun as well. All you need is a sleeping bag and a pillow to complete your campsite inside our museum surrounded by some of the rarest spaceflight artifacts on Earth.
    Please note that all campers must be at least 5 years old.

    Sign up for this incredible experience and launch your family camping trip into orbit!
