Utah Boy Scouts California Camps
The course is directed by a staff of youth leaders and instructors who work closely with their adult advisers. Scouts and their patrols get an opportunity to practice and experience leadership skills first-hand.
Scouts who have completed the National Youth Leader Training course return to their troops with a toolbox of leadership skills that enables them to better understand their role as someone who can and should shape the direction of his troop.
"Each Scout returns home knowing not only how the troop functions, but why, " said John Walker, a Scoutmaster at the Houston pilot course. "He is better equipped to communicate with boys and adults, to plan, to help the troop function as a high-performance unit."
