National Youth Leadership Training

Sunday, July 9 at 12:00 Noon through Friday, July 14 at 8:00 pm Camp Mack Morris, 455 Camp Mack Morris Road, Camden, TN


National Youth Leadership Training 2023 is an exciting, action-packed program designed for councils to provide youth members with leadership skills and experience they can use in their home unit and other situations demanding leadership of themselves and others. The course centers around the concepts of what a leader must BE, what they must KNOW, and what they must DO.

The NYLT course is open to all Scouts BSA and Venturing youth who:

  • Will be at least 13 years of age by July 5th but not yet 18 years of age by July 14th.

  • Have attained at least the First Class rank.

  • Live by the Scout Oath and Law.

  • Have successfully completed 2 years of attendance at a Scout summer camp.

  • Cost - $275

  • NYLT- $25 reservation fee will be applied toward the total registration fee. If we don’t have 30 applicants by April 15th, we will not be able to host a course, and the $25 fee will be refunded.

The objectives of the NYLT course are:

  • To give participants the confidence and knowledge to run the Scouting program.

  • To give participants a basic knowledge of leadership, team building & conflict resolution and help them relate these skills to their unit responsibilities.

  • To allow participants to share ideas and experiences with Scouts from other units.

  • To create an atmosphere of Scouting at its best, living by the Scout Oath and Law.

  • To enhance the relationship between the participant and his/her Unit Leader.

  • To have FUN

What will the Scout learn?

The Scout will learn the fundamentals of good leadership. These include the skills of motivating people and getting the job done. They are presented in a form that encourages the Scout to practice these skills as they are learned. The Scout will learn the importance of forming a group into a unit that is working together because they want to. The tools of communication, identifying and using resources, representing the group, and dealing with problems will all be presented. Your Scout will be able to practice these skills while learning the results they can bring. The skills related to planning, effective teaching, and sharing leadership also will be presented. These tools are the ones that will get the job done. Scouts are challenged through various Patrol activities to provide practical, hands-on experience in using these skills. The Scout leaves with a “Leadership Tool Kit” to aid him/her in applying his/her newly acquired skills back in the unit.

NYLT- $25 reservation fee will be applied toward the total registration fee. If we don’t have 30 applicants by April 15th, we will not be able to host a course, and the $25 fee will be refunded.
