Advanced Leadership training for youth is one of the greatest experiences in Scouting. Learn and use life long leadership skills as a Scout.

NYLT is a leadership development course developed by Boy Scouts of America to enable Scouting youth to lead their Scouting organization. NYLT uses the aims and methods of Scouting to teach leadership skills.

A week is spent in a camping environment that exemplifies the “best" that Scouting can be and is the vision that Baden-Powell intended. Youth will experience a “Youth led Troop” as the program is run by youth.

Seneca Waterways Council operates one of the largest and most successful programs in the Northeast Region at the Walmsley Sawyer Training Center, located at Camp Cutler. Seneca Waterways Council employs the national NYLT program to deliver three NYLT courses each summer, allowing the participants a good selection of dates. Each course is limited to 48 participants to maintain the quality of the program. Youth attempting to register for a filled course will be put on a waiting list and asked if they can select a different course.
