June 27-July 2, 2020 - Camp Illinek

WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF NYLT?

The aims of NYLT are to give each participant a basic knowledge of various leadership skills while helping them relate these skills to their own troop/crew responsibilities; to give them the confidence and knowledge necessary to run their troop/crew program; to provide an opportunity to share ideas and experiences with Scouts from other troops/crews; and of course, to have FUN.

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.
