The Texas Trails Council is a non-profit, community-based, youth-serving organization providing service to 17.5 counties in West central Texas. The council provides programs in each community for boys and girls in Kindergarten through age 20, and co-ed youth through various Scouting Programs.

Districts that serve our Council units. 

  • Buffalo Mountain District - Callahan, Eastland, Fisher, Haskell, Jones, Nolan,  Shackelford, Stephens, Stonewall, and Taylor Counties, with Winters ISD.
  • Pecan Valley District - Lampasas, San Saba, Brown, Mills, Coleman, Erath, and Comanche County. 

The Council supports Cub Scout Packs, Scout Troops, and Venture Crews which are operated by chartered organizations.

Texas Trails Council trains adult volunteers, provides insurance protection, operates Camp Billy Gibbons & Camp Tonkawa, provides council-wide programs & activities, and raises funds necessary to maintain the organization.

United Way of Abilene provides part of the operating budget. The balance is raised from donations, Friends of Scouting, popcorn sales, endowment income, special events and user-based fees.
