National Advanced Youth Leadership Experience (NAYLE)
National Advanced Youth Leadership Experience is an exciting program that enhances leadership skills and expands upon the team-building and ethical decision-making skills learned in NYLT. NAYLE emphasizes leadership, teamwork, and selfless service, and uses the core elements of NYLT to help youth internalize and strengthen these skills. The National Advanced Youth Leadership Experience course is now available at all national high-adventure bases. The material presented is basically the same at all four venues but is site-specific.
Philmont offers participants an unforgettable backcountry experience where they use their NAYLE leadership skills to resolve exciting and challenging issues. Participants are introduced to and have an opportunity to build upon the legacy of Waite Phillips, the benefactors of Philmont Scout Ranch.

Sea Base NAYLE
Offered in the spring in the beautiful Florida Keys, this course will enable participants to sail on a boat and practice their NYLT skills via water-based activities. Participants will learn the history of the Florida Sea Base and hear all about how Sam Wampler, Camping director for the South Florida Council, had a vision that took the Sea Base from a small venue that organized a few sailing trips in the ’70s to what it is today.
