NAYLE

National Advanced Youth Leadership Experience

What is NAYLE?
The new National Advanced Youth Leadership Experience (NAYLE) is an exciting new program where young men enhance their leadership skills in the Philmont Backcountry. Scouts will expand upon the team building and ethical decision making skills learned in National Youth Leadership Training (NYLT). NAYLE uses elements of the Philmont Ranger Training as well as advanced Search and Rescue skills to teach leadership, teamwork and the lessons of selfless service. NAYLE will offer Scouts an unforgettable backcountry wilderness experience where they live leadership and teamwork, using the core elements of NYLT to make their leadership skills intuitive.
 
What can you expect?
The Philmont leadership is committed to making NAYLE a very special experience. Scouts will live in a patrol setting at Rocky Mountain Scout Camp where they use their leadership skills to resolve exciting and challenging backcountry situations. The week will conclude with a closing challenge for each Scout to build upon the legacy of Waite Phillips, the benefactor of the Philmont Scout Ranch.

What are the Benefits?
NAYLE will equip youth leaders to be better troop leaders, NYLT staff members and/or superior camp staff. It will help guide their journey to become true "servant leaders', able to develop all members of whichever team they lead. It provides life skills for now and the future.

How has the mission changed?
NYLT now provides the content needed for councils to develop high performing youth training teams. As such, the "train the trainer" elements are now provided to the entire NYLT staff by their council rather than to the select few who attended the old NJLIC program. While these "train the trainer" elements have been removed from NAYLE, all the excitement remains, with even greater, life long leadership skills included.

Who can come?
Scouts must be 14 and not yet 18, hold a troop leadership position and have completed either NYLT or JLTC. Councils may send a council contingent or troops may send their Patrol Leader Council. Concurrent adult training will be available most weeks at Philmont for contingent leaders.
