Scout Leadership Training

Scout leadership training comes in two flavors: 

  • General Training
    • Youth Protection Training (YPT) is required to register Scouts who are Summer Camp/Winter Camp counselors! Your YPT certificate is good for 2 years from the date of course completion. It may be taken online or face-to-face. 
      • Online YPT is found HERE
    • National Youth Leadership Training (NYLT)
      • This advanced training course is taught at Camp James Ray in Circle Ten Council several times per year:
        - During the spring (hopefully during your school's spring break, but NOT guaranteed) 
        - Several sessions during the summer 
        - During the week between Christmas and New Years (at the same time as Winter Camp)
