National Youth Leadership Training - NYLT @ Big Horn

Welcome to Week 5 of National Youth Leadership Training (NYLT @ Big Horn) at beautiful Tahosa High Adventure Alpine Base. The Scoutmaster for this session is Steve Yexley, the Senior Patrol Leader is Brian Simpson.

The cost for one week at NYLT @ Big Horn is $349.00.

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!
