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.

You can find out more information about Troop 555 on our About Us page, or you are welcome to contact our troop leadership:

News from the Parent Meeting

In December, I sent an email regarding an article in the news that BSA was considering bankruptcy in the wake of sexual abuse and harassment lawsuits.  On October 20th, a representative of the Longhorn Council's Ambassador Program, visited our troop to share the news that BSA would be filing for Chapter 11 reorganization in the coming months.  We do not know the specific date that action will be filed.
