Located on approximately 2,000 acres in Northern Harford County. It has three primary camps, Saffran, Spencer, and Oest, formerly known as Areas I, II, and III. Currently, Saffran and Spencer host Boy Scout Summer Camps, and Oest is home to Cub Scout Summer Camp. All three are used year-round, as well. Our camps have trails to hike, canoes to paddle, three Olympic-size swimming pools in which you can swim, rifles to shoot, and plenty of games, sports, field events, and endless hours of fun and fellowship for all. Our camp programs and facilities are diverse; they enable us to meet the special needs of any unit.
NYLT 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 BAC’s course as the patrol goes on a Quest for the Meaning of Leadership.
NYLT is a two weekend 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.
This course will be an exciting training opportunity and provide an opportunity to become a staff member of a future course.
