Join us for the August NYLT Summer Course
August 14-19, 2017
Ockanickon Scout Reservation
In order to participate a youth member must meet the following requirements by the beginning of this course:
1. Be at least 13 years of age and completed the seventh grade
2. Be a First Class Scout or higher or completed Crew Leadership training
3. Have approval of your Scoutmaster or Advisor.
The NYLT course centers around the concepts of what a leader must BE, what he must KNOW, and what he must DO. The key elements are then taught with a clear focus on HOW TO. The skills come alive during the week as the patrol goes on a Quest for the Meaning of Leadership. Content is delivered in a troop and patrol outdoor setting with an emphasis on immediate application of learning in a fun environment. Interconnecting concepts and work processes are introduced early, built upon, and aided by the use of memory aids, which allows participants to understand and employ the leadership skills much faster.
