Important information on the impact of COVID-19 on National Youth Leadership Training

Scouting is committed to keeping kids safe. Unfortunately this means we will not be conducting NYLT this summer.

On the night of June 24, 2020, we received information from our state and local health governments that make it impossible for us to offer NYLT or summer camp for the 2020 season.

As we have communicated from the beginning of the COVID-19 Pandemic, if we were not allowed to offer NYLT in 2020 we will be providing a 100% refund for payments made to the Denver Area Council for camp. The camping registrar will be contacting staff over the next week regarding your refund.

Needless to say, I’m disappointed to not be offering NYLT, but health and safety of all is a top priority.

I want thank the 2020 NYLT youth and adult staff for working incredibly hard over the past year developing and re-developing the NYLT sessions to accommodate all the changes we have faced. You have given countless hours to support the program we love and you have done everything in your power to develop a strong Scouting experience. No one could have predeicted the challenges we have faced. You overcame them all with grit, determination, cheerfulness, and SCOUTING SPIRIT. I’m proud of each and every person on this year’s team.

Please consider joing the team again in 2021. Use the link below to put your name back in the pool. We will give top priority to anyone on the 2020 staff to come back and make another run at the Big Horn Leadership Team.
