State-Mandated Face-to-Face Youth Protection Training

State-Mandated Face-to-Face Youth Protection Training


If you plan to attend any BSA extended camp in Texas this year, you must have proof that you have attended the state-mandated Face-to-Face (F2F) Youth Protection Training (YPT). Note: Online BSA Youth Protection Training is NOT sufficient!


This applies to all extended BSA camps held in the state of Texas, including any Cub Scout Day Camp, Webelos Residence Camp, Boy Scout Resident Camp (both summer and winter), or Venturing Resident Camp. All adults who plan to be at all or part of these camps must  have this training. (Exception: Parents can get a visitors pass to join their Cub Scouts for lunch on Friday (only), in which case F2F YPT is not required.) 


Note: The requirement for F2F YPT does not apply to weekend camping or to one-day activities, where the BSA online Youth Protection Training (YPT) will be sufficient.


Remember that F2F YPT is good for two (2) years. This means that IF you took the training in the spring of 2012, your card will expire before this summer’s camping season and will need to be renewed.


Both Circle Ten Council and Five Trails District have training sessions scheduled.


Circle Ten Council's sessions include: 

  • Circle Ten Council has training sessions scheduled at Circle Ten Council’s Bobby Lyle Billy Gamble Scouting Center, 5600 US 75, in Fairview, TX, every Wednesday in April at 7:00 pm.
  • Training sessions will be held at Circle Ten Council’s John D. Murchison Scouting Center at 8605 Harry Hines Boulevard (at Regal Row), in Dallas, TX, on every Wednesday in April at 7 pm (except for April 2).

Note: You must pre-register on the Circle Ten Council website to attend any one of these sessions.


Five Trails District has three training sessions scheduled (with more to be scheduled):

  • There was a training session sometime during the Camporee at Camp Constantin in April.
  • Another training session will be held during the Cub Scout Roundtable on Monday, May 12, at 7:00 pm, at Plymouth Park United Methodist Church, 1615 W. Airport Freeway (a.k.a.  TX 183), in Irving, TX.
  • Finally, Troop 840 will host a training session on Saturday, June 14, at 9:30 am, at Valley Ranch Baptist Church (VRBC), at 1501 E. Beltline Road, Coppell, TX. If you wish to sign up for the workshop at VRBC, please click this link


Watch the Five Trails District website to see when more training sessions are scheduled.


If you have questions you can contact Clif Chamberlain, Five Trails YPT Coordinator, via cell phone at 469-223-2313.
