What is NYLT?
National Youth Leadership Training (NYLT) is the premier youth leadership training course of the Boy Scouts of America. NYLT is a unique, one week camping experience run by some of the most experienced and extensively trained youth leaders in Council 251; using a national BSA syllabus. The course integrates the best of modern leadership theory with the traditional strengths of the Scouting experience. Scouts leave NYLT with skills they will use not only in their own troops, but in all aspects of their lives. NYLT teaches the concepts of what a leader must BE, what he must KNOW and what he must DO. Organized as patrols in a troop, our participants skills come alive during the week as they discover new confidence and talents within themselves and learn what it means to Explain, Demonstrate, Guide and Enable (EDGE) other Scouts.
Who Can Attend?
NYLT is open to Boy Scouts and all male and female Venturers. To attend NYLT, a Boy Scout must be 13 years of age by the start of the course; have completed seventh grade, and be at least First Class rank. No exception can be made to the age and rank requirements. A Venturer must have the recommendation of their crew advisor. We recommend that all participants currently hold a leadership position in their units.
When is NYLT?
NYLT 2017 will take place at Camp Resolute from August 13-18. The staff invite you to join the family of troops who have taken advantage of this course and made NYLT a part of their troop leadership development program.
