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.

Boy Scouts of America Troop 6, founded in 1923, is a Scout led Troop that is sponsored by the Doylestown United Methodist Church of Doylestown, PA. A core principle of our Troop is to keep Scouting relevant and real for our Scouts and all those involved in the Program. Since its inception, Troop 6 has produced over 115 Eagle Scouts, 26 since 2010. We currently have 46 scouts as well as a robust set of Uniformed Leaders and an experienced Troop Committee. We have a strong passion for helping newer scouts successfully transition into our Troop from Webelos, and we work closely with them to ensure they steadily progress in rank. We also spend significant time and have a proven Life-to-Eagle approach that helps our older Scouts successfully complete their journey from Life Scout to Eagle Scout. We camp 8-9 weekends a year, spend one week at summer camp, participate in several day trips, and perform many community service projects. We also have a strong High Adventure Program in Troop 6 for our older scouts. We have sent many Scout crews and adults to Philmont Scout Reservation in New Mexico and Sea Base in the Florida Keys. We also organize our own High Adventure trips such as this year’s backpacking adventure in The Shenandoah National Park. We will be returning to Sea Base in 2015 and Philmont once again in 2016.
The Troop meets regularly on Monday evenings at 7:30PM at the church
January is a busy month where we get to show our stuff at Klondike, so please ensure you practice your Knots, review your first aid info and study the other topics we will be practicing on our Laughing Waters trip!!!
