Training Opportunities

Council-sponsored Texas Camp Code Facilitated Adult YPT is planned for each Wednesday in April in preparation for the upcoming camping season. By invitation Only.

Oak Leaf is a junior leader experience designed to supplement Troop level training and prepare Scouts for NYLT (National Youth Leadership Training). It is for Boy Scout youth, First Class Rank or above who will be serving in a leadership capacity within their Troop. Minimum age is 12 years old at time of course.


Northern Trail District has many excellent opportunities to expand our membership and help us attain the Journey to Excellence district performance award. We found that over half the churches in Richardson do not charter a unit, and we want to bring Scouting to them. To help us create new units, BSA National has prepared a 12 Step process from identifying a prospective charting organization to presenting the charter.

If you are passionate about the program contact our Membership Chair Rogge Heflin:, 469-328-7967
