National Youth Leadership Training
NYLT is a must to develop a well-run boy led troop.
The National Youth Leadership Training is a six-day outdoor experience to develop youth leaders for troops and crews. NYLT this year will be at Camp Freedom in Oberdachstetten, Germany 3-8 August. The course is set up to represent a month in the life of a typical Scout troop. Participants will sleep in tents, prepare their own meals by patrols, and will be expected to live by the Scout Oath and Law.
The course will stress two areas of benefits to Youth leaders: (1) outdoor living skills and how they can be passed on to the other members of the troop and patrol, and (2) the skills of leadership that will make the youth leader more effective in his job.
What is its purpose?
To give Scouts and Venturers the confidence and knowledge to lead the troop program
To give youth a basic knowledge of the eleven skills of leadership and help them relate these skills to their troop responsibilities.
To give youth the opportunity to share ideas and experiences with Scouts and Venturers from other troops/crews
To create an atmosphere in which youth will experience the patrol method at its best
To enhance the relationship between the Scout/Venturer and Scoutmaster/Crew Leader To have fun
Who may attend?
Scouts and Ventures participating in the NYLT course live in patrols formed of youth from throughout the council, with youth they have not met before the course. It is highly recommended, therefore, that each course participant be of sufficient maturity and experience as reflected in these requirements:

Are any other forms or special equipment required?

Two activity uniform (Class B – T-shirt) will be provided. Additional t- shirts will be available at $15 each. Each participant must submit an Annual Health and Medical record when they check-in.
