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.

Important Year-End Announcements!

Posted on May 21 2024 - 3:43pm

Hi Triple Nickel Family!

Please read the following announcements for end of year:

  • Court of Honor is Sunday, June 2nd and this is our final meeting before summer break.
  • Please make final Summer Camp payment if you/your Scout has a balance due.  Checks can be made out to Trinity Presbyterian Church and mailed to Amy Bei at 2904 Knight Ct., Southlake 76092
  • Summer Camp medical forms and physicals:  Please turn in ASAP!  It takes time to organize these - DON'T WAIT! 
  • Northern Tier:  We have Scouts that would love to go but we need two amazing registered adults to lead them!  Please let Amy/Laura know ASAP if you are interested so we can plan this High Adventure, before spots are full.
  • Mr. Mike is working on auditing individual Scout & Adult accounts in Scoutbook to bring these up to date.  Once completed, we will send statements out and would greatly appreciate everyone bringing account balances up to date.  And please reach out with questions or concerns - we know times are tough and never want finances to keep our families from enjoying all that Scouting has to offer.
  • Notes from our 4/28/24 Committee Meeting are attached for reference.  Thank you to those parents who attended.
  • CONGRATS to Sumyak on his graduation from Carroll Senior HS!  He is working diligently on his Eagle Project plan, so please be on the lookout for announcements on how we can support him in achieving his Eagle Rank.
  • WELCOME to new Scout Samuel Melesse and his family.  We look forward to meeting y'all!

Always reach out with any questions or concerns to Ms. Laura at (817) 504-5961 or me at (707) 738-7991.  We can help y'all keep moving forward with advancements over summer break!

January 21st Meeting: OA Elections & IMPORTANT Parent Meeting

Posted on Jan 14 2024 - 9:31am

Hello again,

We MUST have over 50% attendance by scouts at next Sunday's troop meeting to conduct Order of the Arrow Elections, and we have several scouts eligible.  We need to show up to support these boys who have been faithfully attending and participating in scouting activities over the last 2 years to earn that eligibility.

Hi Triple Nickel Family,

We are cancelling tonight's meeting due to the weather out of an abundance of caution.  Ms. Katrina was going to teach the Environmental Science merit badge, and has sent the following information that scouts can work on at home to prepare for our January 28th meeting.  Please have your scout complete these portions of the badge worksheet by watching the linked videos and taking good notes!

In order to conduct elections, WE MUST HAVE AT LEAST HALF OUR TROOP MEMBERS PRESENT TO HOLD THE ELECTION (but those eligible are NOT required to be present to be elected to membership). Please plan to attend!
Eligible Scouts:

"For over 100 years, the Order of the Arrow (OA) has recognized Scouts and Scouters who best exemplify the Scout Oath and Law in their daily lives.  This recognition provides encouragement for others to live these ideals as well.  Arrowmen are known for maintaining camping traditions and spirit, promoting year-round and long term resident camping, and providing cheerful service to others.  OA service, activities, adventures, and training for youth and adults are models of quality leadership development and programming that enrich and help to extend Scouting to America's youth."

Hi Troop Family,

You may or may not know that our fearless leader, Ms. Laura, is having surgery on December 7th.  We have set up a Meal Train to provide food for her and the boys, Nate and Lane, so she can rest and recover with one less thing to worry about.  Let's show our support!  Later January dates may be added depending on how she's feeling.  Thank you in advance for showing up for her!  Link below to sign up:
