National Youth Leadership Training | Order of the Arrow Coup Trail Course #3

med_nylt-logo.gif
Overview

National Youth Leadership Training is an exciting, action-packed program designed to provide youth members with leadership skills and experiences they can use in their home troops and in other situations demanding leadership of self and others.

The NYLT course centers around the concepts of what a leader must BE, what he must KNOW, and what he must DO. The key elements are then taught with a clear focus on HOW TO. The skills come alive during the week as the patrol goes on a Quest for the Meaning of Leadership.

NYLT is a six-day course. Content is delivered in a troop and patrol outdoor setting with an emphasis on immediate application of learning in a fun environment. Interconnecting concepts and work processes are introduced early, built upon, and aided by the use of memory aids, which allows participants to understand and employ the leadership skills much faster.

NYLT integrates the best of modern leadership theory with the traditional strengths of the Scouting experience. Through activities, presentations, challenges, discussions, and audio-visual support, NYLT participants will be engaged in a unified approach to leadership that will give them the skill and confidence to lead well. Through a wide range of activities, games, and adventures, participants will work and play together as they put into action the best Scouting has to offer.

100 Years of Excellence

It was in 1918 when the first Boy Scout Council was created in the Salt Lake Valley.
100 years later and the Great Salt Lake Council continues the Scouting tradition for over 60,000 young people.
Join us on September 14 & 15 at our Centennial Jamboral | Century of Honor.


Overview

Every 4 years, the Boy Scouts of America hold a National Jamboree where Scouts from all across the country come together to enjoy a Scouting experience like never before. At the Summit Bechtel Reserve, Scouts participate in high adventure activities, training, trade-o-rees, & build friendships to last a lifetime.

However, not every Scout gets a chance to attend a National Jamboree. So in the year following the event, we hold a Council Jamboral (a Jamboree for all). This year happens to also fall on the centennial of the Great Salt Lake Council so we are pulling out all the stops to make an incredible experience for who attend.

Order of the Arrow | Summer Fellowship

Order of the Arrow Webpage Banner.png

Check in: Plan on checking in at the Induction site between 12:00 p.m. and 2:00 p.m. of the date of the Ordeal.

Pick Up: You will be finished about 2:00 p.m. the next afternoon but we encourage the candidates to stay and register for the Fellowship event.

When a Scout is just elected, he is not an official member until he completes an "Ordeal" which is an overnight campout where he will sleep out under the stars and perform unselfish service the next day with meager food and without talking to others. This tradition is based on the Delaware Indians, where they would send the young braves out by themselves to serve nature and live off the land, until they could return back to the tribe and be recognized as one who has grown closer to nature and is ready to become a member of the brotherhood within the tribe leaders. Please register below for the ordeal of your choice in the Registration area of this website. All BSA safety guidelines are followed during the Ordeal, and there is no hazing or forbidden activities taking place during the Induction Weekend.

Agenda: The Ordeal will consist of a special campfire on Friday night. You will be given a place to sleep and placed on silence for the 24 hour period. The next day you will be involved in service in and around the Induction site. It will be service that needs to be done at the camp or for the civic organization where we are holding the Ordeal. You will be on silence during this period of time. Meals will be provided and you are not allowed to bring any food. If you need special foods or have special medical needs during the Induction Weekend, please note that on your medical form and email the Lodge Adviser right away so your personal needs can be evaluated prior to showing up for the Ordeal. At the conclusion of the Ordeal you will attend a final campfire where your sash will be presented and you will be formally inducted as an Ordeal member of the Order of the Arrow. There will be no hazing or similar activities at the Induction Weekend. It is a time for you to reflect on your commitment to Scouting and to make some personal commitments.
Registration: Online Registration is open until about 2 days before each Induction Weekend. At the door registrations are discouraged, but can be allowed at the discretion of the Lodge Adviser (an additional fee will be charged for at the door registrations).

Please be prepared by bringing a copy of your BSA medical form with you and the following:

Sleeping Bag and Ground cloth or Tarp that can be pulled over top of you in case of bad weather.
Scout Uniform
Work clothes and work gloves
Personal medications and personal hygiene Items that may be needed.
Canteen or water bottle
Small flashlight
Extra clothes or coats that may be needed due to the climate and weather conditions.

National Youth Leadership Training | Model Course #1

med_nylt-logo.gif

Edit Registration

National Youth Leadership Training is an exciting, action-packed program designed to provide youth members with leadership skills and experiences they can use in their home troops and in other situations demanding leadership of self and others.

The NYLT course centers around the concepts of what a leader must BE, what he must KNOW, and what he must DO. The key elements are then taught with a clear focus on HOW TO. The skills come alive during the week as the patrol goes on a Quest for the Meaning of Leadership.

NYLT is a six-day course. Content is delivered in a troop and patrol outdoor setting with an emphasis on immediate application of learning in a fun environment. Interconnecting concepts and work processes are introduced early, built upon, and aided by the use of memory aids, which allows participants to understand and employ the leadership skills much faster.

NYLT integrates the best of modern leadership theory with the traditional strengths of the Scouting experience. Through activities, presentations, challenges, discussions, and audio-visual support, NYLT participants will be engaged in a unified approach to leadership that will give them the skill and confidence to lead well. Through a wide range of activities, games, and adventures, participants will work and play together as they put into action the best Scouting has to offer.
