Five Trails Web Site Update

The Five Trails District Web Site Administrator apologizes for the "strange" appearance of the web site. The vendor that hosts our web site made a major change in the hosting platform software with (essentially) no notice, which has resulted in the need to upgrade the software we use for our web site. 


It is my intention to accomplish that upgrade as quickly as possible, but in the meanwhile, some of the web pages are being overwritten with error messages which may interfere with some content, especially at the top. Until errors are corrected, Upcoming Events and the Scout Cloud, both of which usually appear below Resources on the left side of our web pages, are temporarily disabled. IF you wish to know about upcoming events, please check the Five Trails Calendar using the menu item to the right of the Home menu item at the top left of the web site, below the picture show. 


Thank you for your patience while these errors are corrected as quickly as possible.

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 has added a new training session: 

 

  • Circle Ten Council’s Bobby Lyle  Billy Gamble Scouting Center, 5600 US 75, in Fairview, TX, at 7:00 pm on Tuesday, June 3. To register for this course, login to Circle Ten Council's CampMaster 


Five Trails District
has five training sessions 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.
  • Another F2F YPT session will be held at 7:00 pm on May 15 at First United Methodist Church, Room 306, 420 S. Heartz Road, Coppell 75019. 
  • Yet another F2F YPT session will be held at 7:00 pm on May 29th at Irving North Christian Church, 2901 N. MacArthur Blvd., Irving 75062.
  • Finally, Troop 840 will host a training session for Five Trails District units on Saturday, June 14, at 9:30 am, at Valley Ranch Baptist Church (VRBC), at 1501 E. Beltline Road, Coppell. If you wish to sign up for the workshop at VRBC, please click this link

 

Watch the Five Trails District website to see if/when/where more F2F YPT sessions are scheduled.
