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.

Campout & Troop Meeting Change

Posted on Jan 20 2021 - 5:38pm

Hey Troop,

As of today, I only have 3 scouts signed up for this weekend’s campout.   I got a call today, that one of those scouts may have to cancel.   I learned this week that part of the problem was multiple school related activities were dividing the attentions of many of our older scouts.   With all these factors, we have decided to trade this weekend’s campout to the next weekend  We will have a regular troop meeting this Sunday at 6pm.  Our campout will now be on the weekend of Jan 29-31st.   The good news is…… We will be able to camp closer to home at Camp Burnett in Southlake instead of going to Bridgeport.   We may also have better weather!
