NYLT/White Stag (individual registration)

National Youth Leadership Training (NYLT) is an exciting, action-packed program designed to provide youth members of the Boy Scouts of America with leadership skills and experience they can use in their units and in other situations demanding leadership of self and others. The six-day course, held at Camp Red Wing, Muncie, is patterned after a month in the life of a unit. Content is delivered in a group and team outdoor setting with an emphasis on immediate application of learning in a fun environment. Learn more on the NYLT page.

Camp Scholarships

Financial assistance is available for Scouts who might need help to attend camp. Camp scholarships allow Scouts to earn part of their camp fees by completing an age-appropriate service project. Last year, approximately $20,000 in camp scholarships were offered. Contact the council camping office by phone at (317) 813-7067 or by email for more information.
