The Premier Youth Training of the Boy Scouts of America

The Premier Youth Training of the Boy Scouts of America

National Youth Leadership Training is an exciting, action-packed program designed for councils to provide youth members with leadership skills and experience they can use in their home troops and in other situations demanding leadership of self and others.

The NYLT course centers around the concepts of what a leader must BE, what he must KNOW, and what he must DO. The key elements are then taught with a clear focus on HOW TO. The skills come alive during the week as the patrol goes on a Quest for the Meaning of Leadership.

NYLT is a six-day course. Content is delivered in a troop and patrol outdoor setting with an emphasis on immediate application of learning in a fun environment. Interconnecting concepts and work processes are introduced early, built upon, and aided by the use of memory aids, which allows participants to understand and employ the leadership skills much faster.

The Greater Alabama Council has two courses coming up in 2016.

Spring Session, 5th-11th, June 2016 at Camp Jackson

Summer Session, July 17-23, 2016 at Camp Westmoreland


Bunker Down And Prepare to Run!

Bunker Down And Prepare to Run!

We are very excited to have the opportunity to again offer this unique and fun event for our Boy Scouts.  Zombie Survival is not just Zombies roaming the camp and Scouts running around, it is orienteering, decision making, and basic Scout skills embedded into an intense Zombie themed program. "Scouting is a game with a purpose." Zombie Survival is a game your Troop and Crew will not want to miss.

Small Disclaimer: There will not be any real Zombies at Camp Sequoyah , this is only "Make Believe" at least until a Scout sees a Zombie.

This event has been highly attended in years past. We would strongly encourage your Unit to mark this weekend on your 2016 calendar and plan to attend. You can look for more information soon!

February 19th-21st – Camp Sequoyah

Merit Badge Counselors Needed

Posted on Jan 25 2015 - 7:31am

Our Troop needs parents who are willing to serve as Merit Badge Counselors. You do not have to be an expert in the merit badge subject. You might have knowledge of a subject because of your job, education, background, or hobby. Please look over the list of merit badges, read over the requirements (www.meritbadge.com) for the ones that you think would be a good fit for you. It is very beneficial for Troop 354 to have merit badge counselors for our boys to utilize. They are more apt to want to work on a merit badge if they can work on it with an adult that they are familiar with.

Please email Ralph if you have any questions or need an application.
