Venturing Pack & Paddle:
National Youth Leadership Training is a weeklong training course that provides youth leaders with an opportunity to enhance their leadership skills while living by the Scout Oath and Law in an exciting outdoor environment. Scouts who earn the NYLT shield are prepared to meet the challenges ahead and are better prepared to work with adult leaders.
(No land-based option is available for the Venturing program. Must be a registered Venturer to attend.)
Pack & Paddle is an outpost adventure program that follows the NYLT syllabus. This exciting program is held on Nims Lake and S bar F Scout Ranch backcountry during all NYLT courses. During Pack & Paddle, Scouts will practice low-impact camping, learn how to use a compass, develop leadership skills, hike, and canoe.
Pack & Paddle Requirements:
- Meet all NYLT requirements above.
- Be 14 years of age by the camp date.
- Be able to pass the BSA swim test. (Swim 100 yards using strong strokes.)
Scouts must be able to pack all equipment in their packs including food, crew gear, shelter, and personal items. Take into consideration that this is a strenuous course when selecting equipment.
