What We Do:
Blackland Prairie is known for our over-the-top events like Cub-A-Palooza, Webelos in the Woods, District Dinner, Camporee, and Twilight Camp; Merit Badge Clinics, youth training classes, youth advancement and growing Order of the Arrow Chapter, Makade Aki. The district relies on older scouts, Arrowmen and adult volunteers to provide our fun, unique programs. Our goal is to provide age appropriate, creative events in which our scouts can be a part of a larger community than their own unit. For upcoming activities, click here.
