National Youth Leadership Training is an exciting, action-packed program designed to provide all youth members of the Boy Scouts of America with the leadership skills and experience they can use in their Troop or Crew.

NYLT is a six-day, co-educational course. Content is delivered in a group and patrol outdoor setting with an emphasis on immediate application of learning in a fun environment. Interconnecting concepts and work process are introduced early, built upon, and aided by the use of memory aids, which allows participants to understand and employ their leadership skills much faster.

The purpose of the NYLT course is not to assume the Scoutmaster’s or Crew Advisor’s role of training Youth Leaders, but to support it.

Fee is $250 per Scout. Final registration deadline is May 30th at 11:59 pm! (The Troop is offering $125 scholarships for any of our scouts who want to attend.)

  • Camper Release Form - if for any reason a scout must leave during the week, this form authorized who can pick him up from camp.
  • Questions?  Uniform or equipment needs?  See us at a meeting so we have time to help.

Sunday we will depart from the church at 9:00AM and return Saturday before noon.

Scouts should arrive in FULL UNIFORM - there will be a uniform inspection before we depart

Scouts with medication should turn it in at that time.  It must be in the original container and match what is on the medical form.
