What is NYLT?

NYLT is the prominent week-long (6 day) outdoor leadership experience for current and future troop/team/crew leaders, utilizing the patrol method. It presents leadership skills in multiple formats providing the opportunity for participants to live and practice these leadership skills. Youth staff conducts virtually all of the training. The course follows the BSA National Youth Leadership Training curriculum.

Participants will be engaged in hands-on training led entirely by youth staff that will cover criteria essential to being a leader within their unit, school, and life. Not only will that, but their time here reflect “one month in the life of a unit”, as characterized by official National BSA NYLT Course. All this and more is done within risk free, scout friendly environment of Tanah Keeta Scout Reservation.
