The Scouts BSA NYLT course presents key leadership qualities and skills in a unique youth experience, applying modern leadership and team development theories in a contemporary scouting environment.

Participants camp, work, play and learn – living a month in the life of a model troop condensed into an intense week long or two weekend course. They experience the stages of team development, practice from a “toolbox” of leadership skills and learn that leadership requires vision, goals, and planning.

Participants learn how to be a leading influence in their own unit; discovering resources, methods, games and new skills to make unit meetings, treks and other activities more exciting and worthwhile. They also develop skills that help them emerge as leaders outside their units – at school and in the community.

Who may attend?

Qualified candidates will meet the following criteria…

  • First Class Scouts who are at least 13 years of age or Venture Crew members.
  • Currently serve in a youth leadership position, or possess the skills and ambition to undertake a role in leadership.
  • Be approved by the unit leader.
  • Have completed Troop/Crew Leadership Training in their unit.
  • Are comfortable with long-term camping.
  • Are endorsed by their unit leaders as exhibiting maturity, a positive attitude, focus and aspirations to serve through leadership.
  • Commitment to attend the full course, all sessions.
  • GGAC Camping and County Health guidelines are mandatory

Note: To enable broad council participation and the best youth experience, the number of participants from each unit may be limited. Additional reservations and out-of-council registrations are subject to availability.  

Note also: To conform with the Scouting BSA requirements of boys leading boy troops and girls leading girl troops, we have created two separate registration links based on gender for each session. The exact number of each gender that we can accept is set by the available number of youth staff of each gender.
