NYLT – National Youth Leadership Training

The Simon Kenton Council is offering three sessions of the NYLT. Each course will instruct the participants in advanced leadership skills based on the National BSA Syllabus, and The Youth Leadership Training Continuum. NYLT is a six-day experience based on the activities of a typical unit during a month of program. The course is a combination of classroom and practical exercise, all taught by a youth-led staff, modeling the best in leadership skills, using the teaching E.D.G.E. The course is about vision based team building with a wide variety of fun and challenging activities.The experience provides an opportunity for the participant to meet and develop teams from Crews and Troops from all over the Council’s diverse membership. This experience should model those times in scouting, school and future activities where it is required to form working teams from complete strangers, and accomplish leadership training activities, having fun while making permanent friends.

To qualify for this exciting training, a Scout must be First Class, 13 years of age (14 years of age and older is STRONGLY recommended), and approved by his Scoutmaster. A Venture equivalent outdoor skills and be approved by their unit leader. All participants should have had at least one long-term camping experience and be comfortable living in the outdoors at a camp setting. We expect participants to abide by the Scout Oath and Law, governing all behavior. We expect participants to make decisions based on the principals of the Boy Scout programs, as well as those skills they will be taught as part of the NYLT PROGRAM.

Each course can accommodate up to 48 youth. To ensure the best experience, a maximum of eight participants from one Unit is suggested.
