Big Horn NYLT patchBig Horn Staff

National Youth Leadership Training (NYLT) is an exciting, action-packed program designed to provide all 13 to 20 year old youth members of the Boy Scouts of America with leadership skills and experience they can use in their home units and in other situations demanding leadership of self and others. Leadership, fun, challenge, adventure - NYLT offers all of those and much more.

Every NYLT course operates according to Scouting ideals – those of Boy Scouting and Venturing. Each participant and staff member is welcomed, appreciated, and valued. Each year we select the "best of the best" from the Denver Area Council to be Big Horn Staff. Are you up for the challenge?
