National Youth Leadership Training

Welcome to Session 2 of  National Youth Leadership Training.

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.

Boys registered in Scouts BSA will still be required to earn the First Class rank before attending NYLT.

What is the Involvement of the Unit Leader? NYLT is intended to strengthen the relationship between the youth leader and unit leader. The unit leader is highly encouraged to have a pre-course and post-course conference with the participant to discuss their vision and goals for future success of their home unit.

Code of Ethics Every course operates according to the principles of the Scout Oath and Law. Each participant and staff member is welcomed, appreciated and valued. There is no room for hazing or for any activities that do not add to a positive learning experience for everyone.

NYLT is a very popular program and as such we are asking that you check your calendar accordingly when scheduling a registration.

  • Cancellations for any reason will result in forfeiture of your deposit.
  • Payment in full needs to be received by the council office, 30 days before departure. If payment in full is not received your registration will be cancelled and will result in forfeiture of all deposits.

Cancellation Policy

The safety, health and well-being of our Scouting youth, volunteers, and staff is always a top priority for the Denver Area Council (DAC). The current situation with the global outbreak of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) requires attention, planning, and the implementation of specific prevention and mitigation strategies.

 Currently, the DAC has not received any specific information regarding the 2021 summer camping season being in jeopardy. However, the situation is very fluid and dynamic and changing almost daily. We are actively working with our partners with the National BSA and other governmental regulatory agencies to manage plans for summer camp.

 To help alleviate some questions and concerns from our leaders we have updated our summer camp refund policy as follows. 

 DAC Summer Camp Refund Policy:  The initial $50.00 per Scout deposit for camp is non-refundable but may be applied to and/or transferred to other troop members if a unit’s total registration does not decrease. Cancellations must be received by May 6, 2021, for the 2021 camping season. A cancellation made prior to deadline will receive a refund, less the $100.00 non-refundable deposit per Scout. After May 6, 2021, NO fees will be refunded unless documentation is provided by a medical doctor, or there has been a death in the family. Only Scoutmaster’s and camp contacts may request refunds.

NOTE: The DAC will refund 100% of paid fees if the camp will not open due to local, state, or federal policy regarding the cancellation of summer camping operations. Individual camper fees may also be refunded if there becomes a conflict with a documented change in the school year. Only Scoutmaster’s and camp contacts may request refunds, with the appropriate documentation. Cancellations prior to an official governmental closure will be managed as per the original refund policy.

 The DAC will provide additional information and updates as they become available. Questions may be directed to dave.whitner@scouting.org.
