Take Your Skills to the Next Level!
National Youth Leadership Training (NYLT) is an exciting, action-packed program designed for councils to provide youth members with leadership skills and experience they can use in their home units and in other situations demanding leadership of self and others.
The Big Horn NYLT Course is an intense youth oriented leadership training experience sponsored by the Denver Area Council and held annually at Tahosa Camp near Ward, Colorado. Each week, the training is conducted by highly qualified youth staff under the supervision of adult advisers using the National Youth Leadership Training Course Syllabus, as published by the National Council, Boy Scouts of America. The course models a month in the life of a unit - four meetings (one each day for the first four days) and multiple unit meetings all leading up to a culminating outdoor experience (an overnight outpost camp).
The Denver Area Council, Boy Scouts of America is pleased to offer five sessions of this invaluable training opportunity to our youth leaders. Choose the date that is most convenient for you:
