Welcome to the Waterloo District Website!!

This is the web site for scouts, parents and adult volunteers in the Waterloo District, Austin, Texas. The web site provides information on the Waterloo scouting program and on who to contact if you do not find the information you need. Para informacion en Espanol,

The Waterloo District is one of thirteen geographic subdivisions in the Capitol Area Council of the Boy Scouts of America which serves the youth in 15 counties in Central Texas. Our boundaries are approximately Austin ISD east of Interstate 35 and all of the Manor ISD and Del Valle ISD We also serve some AISD schools north of St. Johns Avenue and west of Interstate 35. 

  • The Waterloo District has scouting programs for boys ages 6 to 21 and for girls ages 14 to 21.
  • The program is primarily organized by grade in school, but for some purposes age rather than grade determines the type of unit the scout joins.
  • Scouts 14 and over may be members of a Boy Scout troop while also at the same time being part of a Venture crew, Varsity team or Explorer post.

If you want to join a scout unit, contact us and we will help you find a unit. For questions about Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, other types of scout units, contact our interim District Executive George Adams at george.adams2@scouting.org

New District Commissioner for Waterloo District

Posted on Jun 17 2016 - 5:35pm

Judith Carroll has done a fantastic job since she succeeded Art Mata as our District Commissioner. She let us know earlier this month that because of increased family responsibilities she needs to end her service.

We are fortunate that Jim Mallios agreed to become our new District Commissioner. Jim is the Vice-Chair for Membership and has been working to identify and build working relationships with the schools where Waterloo provides in-school scouting programs (ISSP). As the new District Commissioner he will continue towork on membership and to define how we deliver unit service to the ISSP units and to our traditional units.

Please join me in thanking Judith for all she has done for our scouts. Please join me in thanking Jim for accepting this important position, and for all he has done and will do for our scouts.
