National Youth Leadership Training (NYLT)

Event Details

NOTE:  Only ScoutmastersCrew Advisors, and Sea Scout Skippers (NOT parents) can register Scouts for this course!

NYLT challenges each participants' mental, physical and emotional condition. Participants who come to the course are assigned at random to patrols to work together. As a patrol, they will cook, attend presentations, and function together with spirit and teamwork. This course is a demanding program that does not offer field sports, merit badges, or a regular trading post. NYLT gives participants the confidence, knowledge and leadership skills to run their units' program. NYLT will allow participants to share ideas and experiences with their Scouting peers. It will provide an opportunity to experience Scouting at its best, enhance the relationship between the participant and his or her adult leaders, and be lots of fun for every participant. 

When: Sunday, July 29, 2018, 12PM - Saturday, August 4, 2018, 9AM

Where: Camp Cedars

Cost: $275 per Scout ($225 if registered and paid for prior to March 15)
