Founded in 1982, Boy Scout Troop 500 is sponsored by St Mark the Evangelist Catholic Church. The troop is part of Coyote District of the Alamo Area Council.

Troop 500 has had a number of Scouts achieve Eagle rank.

Troop 500 is a boy-led troop. We normally meet (Troop Meeting) three Tuesdays every month at the old Knights’ Hall at St. Mark’s at 7 p.m. Normally there is no Troop Meeting on the second Tuesday of the month.  Our Troop Committee Meetings are held in the Healing Room at St. Mark’s Social Hall on the fourth Wednesday of each month at 7 p.m.
