An NYLT course is ideal for training youth leaders. It can also be a valuable
experience for other older Scouts and Venturers. In order to attend an NYLT course, a youth must have the following qualifications by the beginning of the course:

  • Must be a registered member of a Scouting unit.
  • Must have a current BSA Health and Medical Record form parts A, B, and C.
  • Scouts must be 13 years of age and fall within the maximum age allowance for their program registration.
  • They must be a First Class Scout and have completed Introduction to Leadership Skills for Troops.
  • Venturers and Sea Scouts (male and female) must be at least 14, or 13 and have completed eighth grade, and fall within the maximum age allowance for their program. They must have completed Introduction to Leadership Skills for Crews or Ships.
  • It is recommended that they have had at least one year of camping experience. While NYLT is not an outdoor skills course, it is important that each participant have basic camping and outdoor cooking experience.
  • Have a unit leader recommendation.

The course fee is $150.  Registration is due July 23, 2021. Needs-based scholarships are available. Complete and submit the Request for Financial Assistance must be turned in no later than July 16th.
