NYLT for youth leaders

The Pushmataha Council is offering a National Youth Leadership Training (NYLT) course in their council this year at Camp Seminole in Starkville, and Scouts BSA and Venturers from our council are welcome to attend. If you are not familiar with NYLT here is the bottom line...it is the premier youth leadership training course of the BSA...youth participating in this course will come back to your Unit better prepared and ready to lead!

Instead of a weeklong summer camp format, this course takes place over two weekends: August 27-29 and October 8-10, 2021 which opens the opportunity for more Scouts and Venturers to attend.

Who can attend the course?

  • Scouts BSA, Venturing, and Sea Scouts who are currently registered members of a Scouting unit.
  • Scouts BSA members (male and female) must be at least 13 years of age. They must have completed Introduction to Leadership Skills for Troops and have earned the First Class rank before attending NYLT.
  • 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.
