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 experience they can use in their home units and in other situations that demand leadership of self and others. Training of our youth leadership is important in helping the youth and their units to grow. Over the years the Boy Scouts of America has refined and developed this week-long training experience. Youth from your unit are invited and highly encouraged to participate.
NYLT is open to all Scouts BSA members 13 and older as well as all Venturing Scouts and Sea Scouts. Please remember that this includes both male and female.
We are continuously checking with New York state for any updates on what will be expected of us this summer. As we try and stay ahead of what we could expect we have adjusted what our Merit Badge offering will be. We will open merit badges up for registration on April 24th.
This year, our focus is “weird science”. By participating in day camp, the scouts will learn about the scientific process and how science is used in everyday life. They will have the opportunity to explore beyond the mundane, and perform wacky and fascinating experiments, while at the same time having fun, exploring our natural world, and fostering lasting friendships.
