NYLT is filled with activities, presentations, challenges, discussions, and camping in a team environment. Participants learn and practice skills that are valuable at home, church, school, work and the Scouting unit or Young Woman classroom.
The course centers on these themes: Living the Values, Bringing the Vision to Life, Models for Success, Tools of the Trade and Leading to Make a Difference. Specifically these sessions make up the course:
About a year ago the Pleasant Grove Northfield Stake arranged to used Tifie Boy Scout Camp for a leadership development youth conference. Maria and I were on the steering committee to adapt the course. The result was a new tool for camp that brings both girls and boys together in an outdoor setting to learn leadership.
In producing this series, we in no way intended this course to be just for camp. That’s why we have published it here; we want all LDS youth leaders to have access to the tools your Scouting dollars helped to produce.
We look forward to your comments as you use these sessions in your BYC, at Mutual and at youth conferences
