    NYLT StaffNational Youth Leadership Training Staff at Big Horn

    National Youth Leadership Training (aka NYLT - lovingly known in Colorado as "Big Horn") is an exciting, action-packed program designed to provide all 13 to 20 year old youth members of the Boy Scouts of America with leadership skills and experience they can use in their home units and in other situations demanding leadership of self and others. Leadership, fun, challenge, adventure - NYLT offers all of those and much more.

    Every NYLT at Big Horn course operates according to Scouting ideals – those of Scouts BSA and Venturing. Each participant and staff member is welcomed, appreciated, and valued. Each year we select the "best of the best" from the Denver Area Council to be NYLT Staff. Are you up for the challenge? For more information please contact or email Course Coordinator Jason Pettis, 720-515-5793. Additional information from Program Team Administrative Specialist JoLynne Conrad, 720-266-2143.
