National Youth Leadership Training - Summer 2023

Event Details


The Seneca Waterways NYLT Program builds Team Work and Leadership Skills.

Advanced Leadership training for youth is one of the greatest experiences in Scouting. Learn and use lifelong leadership skills as a Scout.

NYLT is a Leadership and Team Development training course developed by Boy Scouts of America to enable Scouting youth to lead their Scouting Troop, Crew or Ship. NYLT uses the Aims and Methods of Scouting to teach Leadership skills.

6 days is spent in a camping environment that exemplifies the “best" that Scouting can be and is the vision that Baden-Powell intended. Youth will experience a “Youth led Troop” as the program is run by youth. In 2023, there is one week-long (Monday-Sunday) Course. NOTE: The Monday-Sunday schedule for 2023 is to provide a "buffer" day between National Jamboree and NYLT.

Seneca Waterways Council operates one of the largest and most successful programs in the Northeast Region at the Walmsley Sawyer Training Center, located at Camp Cutler. Seneca Waterways Council employs the national NYLT program to deliver NYLT courses each summer, scheduled to minimize conflicts with other summertime programs. Each course is limited to 48 participants to maintain the quality of the program. Youth attempting to register for a filled course will be put on a waiting list.

COVID-19 Information:  (Updated: August 10th, 2022):  We will follow all of the guidelines for COVID-19 as set forth by NY State Department of Health and enacted through the Seneca Waterways Council.
