National Youth Leadership Training - NYLT @ Big Horn

Welcome to Week 2 of National Youth Leadership Training (NYLT @ Big Horn) at beautiful Tahosa High Adventure Base.

This registration is intended to be used by the Scout and their parents. It will only allow for one Scout per registration. Parents, there are items in this registration that both you and your Scout must acknowledge. Please take a moment and read this page and all items in the registration as it has changed from last year.

If you are a participant's home unit leader (Scoutmaster or Crew Advisor) please refer the registration on to the Scout's parent - there are items that the Scout and parents must read and acknowledge; paperwork that they need to download, sign and return. Thank you!

Note: In the past, we have experienced unScoutlike activity where a Scout has been registered for more than one week at a time. If this occurs, the deposit paid for any additional weeks will be forfeited.
