The Pushmataha Council (our neighboring council to the South) has announced that they are having to cancel their previously planned National Youth Leadership Training (NYLT) course which had been planned for two weekends in August & October 2021.

Fear not!  The Yocona Area Council is offering NYLT in October 2022.  This is the premier leadership course for Scouts and is the youth equivalent of Wood Badge training for adults.

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.

More information will become available soon, and the dates are scheduled for October 8-10 (Saturday-Monday holiday) and October 22-23 (Saturday-Sunday), 2022.
