Winter Camporee 2018

In 1925, a daring sled dog relay took 20 dog sled teams over 1000 miles from Anchorage to Nome, Alaska during the dead of Winter to deliver life -saving medicine to the remote village of Nome. Every March, the event is commemorated with the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race. Here is the mission:


• WHO: Bull Run District Scouts

• WHAT: Each Troop provides at least one Patrol with Klondike derby style sled to overcome challenges on their mission to get “medical supplies” to remote campers who need help

• WHERE: Camp William B Snyder

• WHEN: January 19 - 21, 2018

• WHY: Demonstrate basic Scout skills for first aid, knot tying, fire building, physical fitness and have fun!

• The course will include notional hazards and crewmembers will sustain notional injuries during the mission

• As they race progresses, the going will get tougher and the teams will have to work together not only to survive – but complete the mission!

What is NYLT?

NYLT (Impeesa) is the National Capital Area Council’s presentation of the National Youth Leadership Training. The objective of our NYLT program is to equip our young people with leadership skills to help them succeed in their scouting program and in LIFE. NYLT brings together scouts from all over the Council to learn and practice the leadership techniques in a risk free, scout friendly environment. The Scouts learn and practice leadership skills and styles together.

The course is presented primarily using a Boy Scout model as the vehicle which allows all attendees to SEE how leadership skills fit into the scouting program. These Leadership skills are applicable to all scouting programs.

Why Have NYLT?

While it remains the responsibility of the unit leaders to train the youth leaders, this course is designed to supplement the adult leaders’ role in the training process. NYLT skills build on the fundamental leadership skills presented in the unit basic leadership training in their home unit. This training conference has six specific objectives:·

  • To give participants the confidence and knowledge to run their unit.
  • To give participants the most contemporary, successful, and useful leadership tools available and allow them to "experiment” with them to help them better relate these skills to their unit responsibilities.
  • To give participants the opportunity to share ideas and experiences with Scouts from other scouting programs.
  • To create an atmosphere where Scouts will experience Scouting at its best.
  • To enhance the relationship between the participant and their adult leaders.· To have fun!

 Remember, "Scouting is a game with a purpose.” — Baden-Powell
