National Youth Leadership Training (NYLT) is a six-day course that delivers training 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.

Scouts must be age 13+, hold First Class rank or higher, and have their Scoutmaster's permission. Full details on that council page.
There are two options for NYLT. Standard sessions take place in a summer camp-like setting. Attendees are organized into patrols and troops when camp starts. Pack-and-paddle sessions (only age 14+) take place in the back country of S-F, with the week split between canoeing and backpacking while attendees learn from the same standard syllabus.
The troop credits one half the NYLT registration fee upon successful completion of the course!
NYLT Staff is an opportunity for graduates of the program to give back and to practice what they learned.
National Advanced Youth Leadership Experience (NAYLE) provides an exciting program that enhances leadership skills and expands upon the team-building and ethical decision-making skills learned in National Youth Leadership Training. NAYLE emphasizes leadership, teamwork, and selfless service, using the core elements of NYLT to help youth strengthen these skills. The NAYLE course is now available at all four national high-adventure bases. The material presented is basically the same at all four venues but is specific to the unique environment of each site.
