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.

Updated Longhorn Council Youth Protection Policy: The Longhorn Council and the BSA place the greatest importance on creating the most secure environment possible for our youth members. The BSA mandates that all volunteers complete our Youth Protection Training (YPT), developed by prominent child-safety experts, prior to any interaction with children in a BSA program. The training, which is regularly updated to include the latest strategies for recognizing, responding to, and preventing abuse, covers multiple types of abuse including emotional abuse, physical abuse, and sexual abuse among others. YPT is required for each adult on the unit charter, all newly registered adults, and over-18 participants in Scouting programs.
