Oak Leaf has come to Blackland Prairie!  Our first ever Oak Leaf will be on April 25-26 at Camp Wisdom.  If your scout is first class or above he is welcome to sign upHERE for this course.  Oak Leaf is a first step to learning the EDGE method of teaching and will be very helpful when attending NYLE (National Youth Leadership Experience) this summer.  NYLT is much like the adult Wood Badge.

This two day course will be a fun game with a purpose and your scout will be able to bring back to this troop what he has learned. 

Cost is $25.00 and REGISTRATION is important.  If you have any questions please contact Theresa Kaualoku at 469-471-2446 or email at jtdolan4@aol.com.
