Scoutmaster's Message

Scoutmaster Monty Humble

Thank you for considering joining our Troop. Troop 70 and its leaders believe strongly in preparing young men to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of Scout Oath and Scout Law. Our Troop is a medium-to-large size troop with 70~90 active Scouts aged between 11 and 18. The diverse group of Scouts came from Southwest Austin including Lake Travis, Westlake, and Oakhill areas. Though many of our scouts were Cub Scouts before they joined the Troop, no prior experience required to become a Boy Scout.


We focus on training our Scouts to be self-sufficient, well prepared, and resourceful while enjoying many great outdoor activities. We provide a clear leadership path for each young Scout to progress to a higher rank. One of the unique aspects of Troop 70 is that we hold firmly to being boy-led which means boys were giving ample opportunities to practice their leadership skills by planning, executing, and reviewing each activity. Through this process, many of our senior and Eagle Scouts became great leaders in their schools and communities.

We strongly encourage you to visit our weekly meetings and one of our campouts to experience all Troop 70 has to offer.

We hope this pamphlet will be useful for you. The transition from Webelos or first-time Scouts can be confusing. We are here to help. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us. We will do our best to make your scouting experience rewarding and memorable!
