National Advanced Youth Leadership Experience
What is NAYLE?
National Advanced Youth Leadership Experience (NAYLE) is an exciting program of the Philmont Training Center where young men and women enhance their leadership skills at the Philmont Rayado Ridge camp.
Youth will expand upon the team building and ethical decision making skills learned in National Youth Leadership Training (NYLT). NAYLE uses elements of the Philmont Ranger Training as well as advanced Search and Rescue skills to teach leadership, teamwork and the lessons of selfless service. NAYLE offers participants an unforgettable backcountry wilderness experience that develops leadership and teamwork skills, using the core elements of NYLT to make these skills intuitive.
