Welcome to Troop 845

We are the Boy Scouts of America Troop 845 in Coppell, Texas, chartered by Coppell Bible Fellowship. We are a troop with a Christian focus, our troop number comes from Psalm 84:5 "Blessed is the man whose strength is in the Lord.."

Our Troop cheer is "We Are Troop Eight-Four-Five, We Are Blessed!"

We meet on Sunday evenings at 5:00 pm at the church and invite you to visit and learn more about us.

 

Donations for troop matching gift opportunity!

Posted by stjones on Sep 24 2020 - 9:55pm
 

Troop 845 has been presented with a wonderful opportunity.  Two separate donors have approached us offering their help to raise funds.  Together they have pledged to match dollar-for-dollar donations up to $1000, giving us the opportunity to raise $2000 for the Troop!

As you know, our troop has refrained from doing any fundraising and have only used the money collected during recharter for its operating budget. The troop leaders are thrifty with the funds and maximize their use to make them last the entire year; and we are on track for that, nevertheless, I believe it would be a disservice to the Scouts not to accept these generous challenges and help take our program to the next level.

We understand these could be difficult times for some of us, so please don't feel obligated to participate if you can't at this time. However, if you are able and have the means, please consider making a donation to take advantage of these generous opportunities.  Click HERE to make your donation. Type the amount and press enter to submit.  Just $25 per family can help us reach that goal.

BOOTCAMP Campout

Posted by fsaenz on Sep 21 2020 - 3:14pm
Our long awaited Bootcamp Campout will be in Argyle at Troop 771 Scout Barn property. We will leave CBF at 0900 Saturday morning. The main focus of this Campout will be focused on getting our Coyote and Shark patrol scouts introduced to how the troop function on campouts. We will work with our first year scouts on their Tote N Chip and FireM' Chit as well as other rank advancement opportunities. We will return to CBF around noon Sunday. This is a great campout for the younger scouts it gives them a quick overnight campout to learn what it like to be a troop 845 scout.

We will meet on at 9AM Saturday Morning near the Troop trailers and return Sunday around noon.

All those attending should eat breakfast before arrival at CBF.

We will be traveling in class A uniform. I recommend wearing your class B under your uniform, we will go to class B when we arrive at camp. Scouts will be allowed to keep their phone until arrival at camp. Phones will be given back when we return Sunday. If you need to contact us Mr Harris number is 214-325-1528

  • In accordance with BSA Circle 10 guidance regarding COVID 19 we need all those attending this weeks Kayak campout (scouts & adults) to complete the two attached forms. We will be using these forms for all future campouts as well. These will be turned in Friday to Mr Saenz when you arrive at CBF.
  • In addition, if your scout will need medication during the campout those medications along with a written description of when they are to be administered will be given to Mr Saenz as well.
  • Also, each Scout will need to have a tent of their own due to new health regulations. If you have a spare tent you can loan, please let Mr. Harris know ASAP. The Troop only has about 10 tents on the trailer so the need is high.  First class scouts and above that have been previously approved by the scoutmaster may use hammocks, however I and not sure about the availability of trees etc. to secure them.
