National Youth Leadership Training


The National Youth Leadership Training program is an intensive week-long summer experience for upper-ranking Scouts. Each participant works as part of his new Patrol and Troop through a week of indoor and outdoor challenges, with the mentoring of the highly skilled youth staff. Participants are equipped with the basic skills necessary to become leaders in their Troops, communities, and future professions.

During the seven days, program will range from geocaching to knots instruction, sports games, realistic first aid practice, overnight backpacking trips, interpatrol competitions and campfires. Each part of the program is carefully prepared and used as a hands-on tool to teach fundamental leadership concepts. An orientation at the beginning of the week and a graduation ceremony at the end round out the experience.

Since its establishment in 1980, the NYLT program has built a strong legacy of service and leadership. An NYLT is now held in almost every scout Council across the nation; the course for youth in the North Florida Council is held each summer at Camp Shands in Hawthorne, FL.

Welcome to our Learning Adventures website in We are moving our previous website to this blog website. During this transition time, you will be able to access our previous website here.

about our website

Our web sites have been our learning laboratory for many years. Our first web adventures site was published on 1996.

The main objective of our web sites is to provide a portal for all courses, seminars, and learning resources for our students, family, and friends. The portal includes current learning topics, news and access to our current courses. Because our learning adventures go beyond our on-campus and online classrooms, the portal also have links to our e-families, scouting, drawings, and other professional and personal activities that enhance a learning experience. Learning is a continuous adventure.

We try to keep this one very simple based on basic design and easy navigation schemes. Most of the suggestions from our web development students and friends have been used. The latest changes were implemented to help our students and to simplify their learning experience.

This website is always under construction and feedback is always welcome as part of our learning adventures.

Welcome aboard, set the sails and enjoy this learning journey!!!
