NYLT to be Held at Camp Ockanickon in Pennsylvania

Patriot Path Council is still accepting registrations for the National Youth Leadership Training program (NYLT) in November. A limited number of openings are available.

The dates are Nov. 6-8 and Nov. 13-15, and the program will be held at Camp Ockanickon in Pipersville, Pennsylvania (just over the border from Frenchtown).

New Jersey’s COVID-19 restrictions do not permit youth camping, which creates a serious problem in the delivery of the NYLT program. NYLT leadership, after considering various options, concluded that this was the best alternative to maintain the continuity and value of the program, and minimize inconvenience to the families of the participants.

Participants must attend both weekends to be credited with completing the course.

What is NYLT? NYLT is a rigorous youth leadership training program that provides skills for life and is designed to benefit and enhance the leadership teams of troops and crews. It is fun, challenging and informative.

The NYLT course centers on the concepts of what a leader must BE, what a leader must KNOW, and what a leader must DO. The key elements are taught with a clear focus on HOW TO. The skills come alive during the week as the participants go on a Quest for the Meaning of Leadership.

Who may attend NYLT? Registered Scouts BSA 13 years of age or completed the seventh grade until 18 years of age who have obtained First Class and who have completed Introduction to Leadership Skills for Troops at their home unit.  OR: Registered Venturers and Sea Scouts 14 years of age and completed the eighth grade who have completed Introduction to Leadership Skills for Crews or Ships at their home unit. Highly recommended to have one year of camping experience.

The cost is $310 for regular registration, and $340 for late registration (after October 15, 2020).
