Welcome to Troop 1598



Who are we?

Troop 1598! - Bad to the Bone! - Hoo-rah!




Troop 1598 is a medium-sized Boy Scout troop located in the Houston/Clear Lake Area. We are sponsored by the Piper's Meadow Community Improvement Association and are a part of the San Jacinto District in the Sam Houston Area Council.


Troop 1598 is not your typical Scout troop. From our red berets to our Troop battle flag and Patrol flags, we have a unique look and the spirit and confidence to match. Our mission is to prepare future leaders of our community and nation with skills and solid character, demonstrated through strong leadership, discipline, maturity, and values and forged through tough, exciting experiences.

Come see what Troop 1598 is all about. We have weekly meetings every Monday from 7:00-8:30 p.m. at the Pipers Meadow Community Center located at 15920 Pipers View Drive (map). (South of El Dorado, close to I-45.)

Feel free to visit us any time!
