About Us

Troop 488 is a boy-led unit with an emphasis on the Patrol Method and a focus on the teachings and traditions from the founder of Scouting, Lord Baden-Powell!

For over 40 years, we have proudly served Southwest Austin as part of the Thunderbird District in the Capitol Area Council. We are chartered by St Catherine of Siena Catholic Church and meet weekly on Monday nights.

We are always happy to host scouts, scouters, or guests at any of our troop meetings and events so reach out if you’d like to stop by and visit - we’d love to hear from you!

Troop 448's Vision of Success:
