At NYLT, Boy Scouts and Venture Scouts from across the Greater Alabama Council will be organized as an "ideal" troop to learn leadership skills and operate according to the Scout Oath and Law. You will be led by older scouts who have already been through the program with adult oversight.

There are two opportunities to attend NYLT this summer. May 27-June 2 and July 15 to July 22.

Philmont Preparation Notes

Attached are the Philmont documents we’ve used in the past. The first attachment, “Philmont Document Guide”, provides an explanation of the other documents. It helps to know how to navigate them as you look for gear or try to come up to speed on what is necessary for Philmont. Use these resources as you gather equipment for the Philmont trek.

Hey guys, and dads,

Yes it is time for the annual ski trip, but there is no snow. Maybe the trip can be rescheduled when there is snow. Will keep an eye on the situation.

Time for the annual ski trip. Be sure to sign up asap. We do need to have a bunch to lower the cost per scout and dad. Hurry ! ! !
