Registration Opening Soon

In order to attend the course each participant must certify that they have have now (or will have by June 1st ) met the following qualifications to attend NYLT:

• Attained First Class Rank if in Boy Scouts

• Completed Unit Leader Training

• At least 13 years of age (With the Course Directors approval)

   Youth 12 years of age and younger will not be able to attend

• Home Unit Leader approval




NCAC will be conducting a Winter break NYLT course in an effort to better

support the Council's needs to provide advanced youth leadership training.

 This NYLT course will cover all the requirements presented in the BSA

National NYLT syllabus over the course of two weekends.  NCAC has conducted

NYLT in the two-weekend format in the past; however, this course is

scheduled around school breaks.  Because of the month long break between

sessions, participants will be required to coordinate a "patrol project"

with members of their patrol between sessions and present their completed

project on weekend two.

The camp has heated facilities for instruction.  Bunkhouses (unheated) will

be used for the majority of sleeping; however, weather depending, the youth

will spend one night in their own tent.  Enrollees will receive a packing

list and further instructions.  Regardless of the weather, outdoor

application of skills activities will occur outdoors.


Another difference from the weeklong course is the weekend program does not

allow as much opportunity for patrol cooking, therefore allowing the

compressed schedule to focus on the leadership instructions.




16 - 18 January 2016


13 - 15 February 2016

(both weekends must be attended)

(The cost for the Course will be $250)





What is NYLT?

NYLT (Impeesa) is the National Capital Area Council’s presentation of the National Youth Leadership Training. The objective of our NYLT program is to equip our young people with leadership skills to help them succeed in their scouting program and in LIFE. NYLT brings together scouts from all over the Council to learn and practice the leadership techniques in a risk free, scout friendly environment. The Scouts learn and practice leadership skills and styles together.


The course is presented primarily using a Boy Scout model as the vehicle which allows all attendees to SEE how leadership skills fit into the scouting program. These Leadership skills are applicable to all scouting programs.


Why Have NYLT?

While it remains the responsibility of the unit leaders to train the youth leaders, this course is designed to supplement the adult leaders’ role in the training process. NYLT skills build on the fundamental leadership skills presented in the unit basic leadership training in their home unit. This training conference has six specific objectives:·

  • To give participants the confidence and knowledge to run their unit.
  • To give participants the most contemporary, successful, and useful leadership tools available and allow them to "experiment” with them to help them better relate these skills to their unit responsibilities.
  • To give participants the opportunity to share ideas and experiences with Scouts from other scouting programs.
  • To create an atmosphere where Scouts will experience Scouting at its best.
  • To enhance the relationship between the participant and their adult leaders.· To have fun!


Remember, "Scouting is a game with a purpose.” — Baden-Powell
