Last Day To Register

The last date for registration has passed.


First, for those of you who have already signed up for NYLT, or if you are considering signing your scout or venturer up for NYLT, be advised that the Parent/Participant orientation session is scheduled for Sunday, June 10, at 2:00 to be held at the Whittaker Family YMCA located at 2681 Old Rosebud Road in the Hamburg Area. This orientation is strongly recommended for all parents and participants.

Note that this is a correction of the date. Some information with a June 3 date was circulated earlier, but that has changed to June 10.

We also strongly urge parents to bring hard copies of medical forms parts A, B & C to the orientation session if you have not already turned them into the scout office. We have a firm policy of collecting hard copies of these forms before the beginning of the course on July 22 because we need to know about dietary issues, allergies and medications in advance for planning purposes. 

What is NYLT?

National Youth Leadership Training is a six-day outdoor experience for Boy Scout Troop and Venture Crew leaders. It is the next step in the BSA training continuum after Introduction to Leadership Skills for Troops/Crews. The course teaches Scouts more about leadership through training sessions, group activities and games, and personal challenge. At NYLT, Scouts apply leadership skills in real-world situations to help their patrols achieve success.

What is its purpose?

Scouting recognizes that Scoutmasters and Advisers have the responsibility of training their youth leaders using ILST and ILSC.  The purpose of the NYLT program is not to assume that role, but to support it.  The objectives of the course are:

  • To give the participants the confidence and knowledge to run the troop program.
  • To give participants a basic knowledge of Be-Know-Do leadership model and help relate these skills to their troop roles and responsibilities.
  • To allow Scouts to share ideas and experiences with Scouts from other troops.
  • To create an atmosphere where Scouts will experience Scouting at its best.
  • To enhance the relationship between the participant and his Scoutmaster.
  • To have fun.
