NYLT is a training program, designed to improve the Troop and Crew program. Troops and Crews may nominate as many leaders as they wish. Troops/Crews need to name the youth leader(s) who will attend at the time a nomination is made.
An equipment list will be sent to each participant. He/she should bring the same clothing and equipment that they would take to summer camp, together with a completed medical form from a current physical exam. Each Scout will represent their home Troop/Crew and will wear its insignia. Full uniforms are needed.
The cost for the conference is $200.00 per Scout, which includes all food and training materials. A $75.00 deposit per Scout is required with the registration form to hold the reservation. Nominations need to be submitted online by March 15, 2019. The fee is to be paid by March 29, 2019. If fees are not paid in full by March 29, 2019 the fee is $250.00. Troops and Crews are encouraged to pay at least part of the fee from their budgets.
There are no refunds after March 29, 2019. There will be no reservations accepted after this date. All Funds and Nomination forms MUST be submitted to the Council Registrar by email, mail or hand delivery in order to count meeting the deadline. Do NOT submit this information to the NYLT Coordinator or hand deliver to your district executive. ALL nomination forms and funds must be submitted directly to the Council office.
A pre-course meeting will be held on Saturday, March 16, 2019 for Scouts, parents, and the Scout's Scoutmaster/Crew Advisor. We will review course expectations, equipment needed, the Scoutmaster's/Crew Advidor's role, and answer any questions. Final payments may be made at the meeting.
