National Youth Leadership Training

Multiple Locations

National Youth Leadership Training (NYLT) is an exciting, action-packed program designed to provide youth members of the Boy Scouts of America with leadership skills and experience they can use in their units and in other situations demanding leadership of self and others. This six-day course is patterned after a month in the life of a unit. Content is delivered in a group and team outdoor setting with an emphasis on immediate application of learning in a fun environment. NYLT will be offered at three different times during the year. A spring and fall course will each be held over two weekends at Camp Kikthawenund and a week long summer course is held at Camp Krietenstein.
