Boy Scout Roundtable

The monthly Boy Scout Roundtable occurs October thru May on the first Monday of every month (except in September (Labor Day holiday) and possibly in January).  

In August, the Boy Scout Roundtable occurs jointly with the Cub Scout Roundtable before school starts in Coppell and Irving; check the Five Trails District Calendar for the August date.  

In January, the Boy Scout Roundtable usually occurs on first Mondays UNLESS that Monday is January 1; check the Five Trails District Calendar for the January date.  

The monthly roundtable is held at:  

Plymouth Park United Methodist Church (PPUMC)
1615 West Airport Freeway
Irving, TX 75062
 

in Fellowship Hall at the rear of the church.  

 

Becoming a Den Chief


The Coppell portion* of Five Trails District is currently piloting a new way for Boy Scouts to easily serve as Den Chiefs.  In lieu of each Scout from five Coppell Troops reaching out to any of the nine Coppell Packs, we have a single Den Chief Coordinator Commissioner, who will help you get plugged in. 

 

Click HERE to download the Den Chief Program Guide for 2014-2015 (for Coppell).

 

To make this all work requires partnering across several folks:

  • District Den Chief Coordinator – a Unit Commissioner chartered with coordinating between the Pack Leaders and the Den Chiefs (through the Troop Leaders).
  • Pack Leaders – Cub Scout volunteers (e.g., Cubmaster and Den Leaders) who are looking for additional assistance with their Dens and are willing to help a Boy Scout grow as a leader.
  • Troop Leaders – Boy Scout volunteers (e.g., Asst. Scoutmasters) who will ensure that the Boy Scout seeks the proper Den Chief training, will provide feedback and mentoring during their Den Chief experience, and liaison with the Troop Advancement team for recognition after the term of service is complete.  The following Troop leaders are the Den Chief contacts for the Scouts:
    • Troop 807 – Mr. Towell
    • Troop 840 – Mrs. Isaacs
    • Troop 841 – Mr. Ellinger
    • Troop 842 – Mr. Franks
    • Troop 845 – Mr. Caswell

If you are a Boy Scout seeking to serve as a Den Chief, you can sign up to be placed in a Den (or notify us that you are already active) -- click HERE.

* Note: The Irving part of Five Trails is still a "work-in-progress" for this District program. Stay tuned to this page for more details as they become available.
