National Youth Leadership Training is an intensive week long Leadership Training Course for Boy Scouts, Venturers, and Explores who are 13 years of age and older and are of 1st Class rank and above, have completed Introduction to Leadership Skills for Troop/Crews and has been pre-approved by their Unit Leader. National Youth Leadership Training is a life changing experience for many. While participants will be equipped to provide enthusiastic, and competent leadership for their Troop, or Crew in the context of the Patrol Method, they will also gain leadership skills and experiences which will prove valuable throughout the rest of their lives. National Youth Leadership Training is set up to represent the life of a Scout Troop in a one month time period. The first three days of the course represent the first three weeks in  a Troop’s calendar, where the Troop plans for a big event.  Patrols later use their skills and knowledge at a camp outpost  towards the end of the week. National Youth Leadership Training is used to improve leadership skills and knowledge that Scouts can take home to improve their Troops.  This is a Leadership Training Course, NOT a Skills Instruction Course! Held at the Bay Lakes Council's beautiful Camp Hiawatha, situated deep in the Hiawatha National Forest of Michigan's Upper Peninsula, participants will enjoy an intensive leadership experience where the natural beauty of the Camp, and the NYLT syllabus will make the Scout Handbook come to life. Cost for the course is $280 if registered and paid in full before April 15th. After April 15th, a $20 late fee will be assessed. A $140 deposit paid at the time of registration is required to hold your spot. All payments are transferable but non-refundable. Your Unit Leader's approval must also be secured to attend the course. Warning: This course typically fills up rapidly, and registration is first come, first served, with later registrations maintained on a waiting list, so don't delay! NYLT Participant Packet - REQUIRED DOCUMENTS!
