Explore the rich history of Troop 797 Scouting and join us as we venture forward into the future.

Our troop is based just outside of Houston, TX, within Sam Houston Area Council (SHAC).

We are a faith-based organization within the Southwest Ismaili Scouts chartered organization.


About Our Troop

In each Troop family, Scouts embark on a Scouting journey that is well over 100-years-old. Scouts learn about new topics in camping outdoors, citizenship and duty, planning and leadership, and hobbies and interests. Scouts are taught in a holistic, all-encompassing manner to develop the skills and friends they will need in their lives to tackle and enjoy the responsibilities of being an adult, citizen, and leader in our world.

Troop 797 is an established, active Troop with a charter history of over 35 years, based around Houston, TX. Our Troop is supported by the strength of our Scouters, their leadership, Parents, and most importantly, of the Scouts, who embrace the Scouting experience and it’s life lessons. We have remained active in the community, and our Scouts have conducted impactful Eagle Service Projects benefitting the local community.

Troop 797 meets on Sundays at 10am, and is committed to maintaining a consistent schedule with high active participation from all our Scouts, Leaders, and Parents.
