This summer, join in the fun of National Youth Leadership Training at Camp OhDaKoTa in Burlington! This year’s course will be from June 15th to 21st, and you can STILL make the early bird pricing before May 19th!

Built on the long legacy of past Junior Leader Training success, the National Youth Leadership Training course integrates the best of modern leadership theory with the traditional strengths of the Scouting experience.

Through a wide range of activities, games, and adventures, NYLT participants will work and play together as they put into action the best that Scouting and Venturing have to offer. The course is set up to represent an activity cycle in the life of a typical Scouting unit.

Participants will be guided through the planning stages—learning to conduct lively, relevant unit meetings—as they prepare for an actual camping trip at the end of the week. Their planning culminates with the NYLT Outpost Camp, where participants put their leadership skills to the test.

Using the team method, participants will undergo a “Quest for the Meaning of Leadership,” utilizing a “Toolbox of Skills” given to them throughout the week. Participants will learn—through both class-like presentations and hands-on activities—about various leadership topics, such as the Leading EDGE, Conflict Resolution, Valuing People, and Communicating Well.
