Troop 11 is a highly active, larger inner-loop Boy Scout group chartered by the First Presbyterian Church located at 5300 Main in Houston’s Museum District. The troop holds the distinction of being the oldest Scouting organization in Houston.
The Troop is run by boys under the guidance of a remarkable group of adult leaders. The boys plan the annual calendar and set goals for advancement, participation and community service based on discussions with the Scoutmaster and Troop Committee. Given the age and rank demographics of the troop, the program focuses on advancement to First Class, training for merit badges, with monthly overnight camping trips usually including hiking, fishing or canoeing events. Each month, the troop also strives to have a part-day service project or training opportunity.
