National Youth Leadership Training

NYLT is an exciting, action-packed program designed to provide all 13 to 20 year-old youth members of the Boy Scouts of America with leadership skills and experiences they can use in their home units and in other situations demanding leadership of self and others.

A trained and dedicated staff of youth leaders and instructors work closely with qualified adult mentors to conduct this course. Participants and their training patrols are immersed in an environment where they practice and experience state-of-the-art leadership skills for highly effective teams—firsthand!

This intense six day training course is held in an outdoor setting at Camp Horace Johnson on beautiful Island Lake, 25 miles north of Duluth, Minnesota.

Participants who have completed the NYLT course return to their home unit equipped with a toolbox of current-day leadership skills that enable them to better understand their role as a youth leader who can, and should, be shaping the direction of their unit. Each trained participant knows not only HOW their unit should function, but also WHY. Participants are better equipped to communicate with other Scouts or Venturers and with their adult leaders.  Under their leadership, their unit will function better and achieve goals that are only possible of a high-performing troop or crew.
