Course Announcements

The 2020 NYLT Senior staff have meet and came up with the decision that they would not be able to have the course full prepared with the extension of the Stay at Home Order for Illinois until May 30th.  As a result, the decision has been made to postpone the course to August 2-7, 2020 at Ingersoll Scout Reservation.  Also, that the pre-course meetings scheduled for June 14 or June 19 will be rescheduled to be in late July and we will announce those new dates and locations as we get them finalized.  

National Youth Leadership Training (NYLT) is the W. D. Boyce Council’s premier youth leadership training experience.

Scouts AND Venturers (including females) can participate in the National Youth Leadership Training experience, the W. D. Boyce Council’s most advanced youth leadership training program.

If you can SEE it, you can BE it!
