Welcome to Troop 555, The Triple Nickel!

Troop 555 was established in September of 2012. It was the vision of a group of scouts who were looking for a more challenging scouting experience than they were getting. They wanted a truly boy-led troop with a focus on service, scout skills, backpacking and adventure. The adults in the troop see their roles as mentors, counselors and facilitators, helping the scouts to plan activities and advance in rank. As a troop, we encourage both scouts and adults to take advantage of the many training opportunities available in scouting. 

Troop 555 meets most Sundays from 6:00pm until 7:30pm at the Trinity Presbyterian Church, 1452 W. Southlake Blvd, Southlake, TX 76092 (directly across from Carroll Senior High School). We usually don't hold meetings on the weekends we have campouts. Please refer to the Upcoming Events list to the right if you are interested in specific meeting dates or troop activities.

Summer Camp Payments

Posted on Jan 26 2022 - 12:36pm

Ray McNutt has reserved space for the troop to attend summer camp at Camp Strake near Huntsville, TX for the week of June 26-July 2, 2022The facilities are new as they sold the original Camp Strake (near Conroe) in 2014 and built an entirely new facility in a less populated area.  It is a scenic location.  There are great activities for both the older and younger scouts.  The travel time/distance is still convenient and comfortable for a younger crowd.  A copy of the tentatively planned merit badge classes is attached.  You can find out more about Camp Strake at this link:  https://www.samhoustonbsa.org/summer-camp
