Grey Wolf is Northern Star Council's home of National Youth Leadership Training (NYLT).  We present the NYLT syllabus in either a model troop or model crew environment. A Grey Wolf unit is led by a youth staff trained to provide counseling and mentoring. Adult leadership is present and visible, but the unit is run by a well-trained youth staff, who have all previously completed a Grey Wolf experience. There’s plenty of time to learn and practice advanced Scouting skills (taught by the youth staff), as well as learning leadership skills, all while living and discussing the values of Scouting. Scouts who complete this course typically return to their home units with a renewed enthusiasm for Scouting, and fond memories of spending a week in a unit where the Scout Oath and Law are lived intensely and fully.

Below you will find a link for parents/Scoutmasters/Advisors as well as one for Scouts. By selecting the appropriate link you will begin a very short overview that will help set your expectations for the experience that you will soon have with Grey Wolf. If you will be attending Grey Wolf in 2014 or are the parent(s)/unit leaderof a Scout who will be attending, it is important that you read the overviews and the FAQ. If you haven't previously completed the overview, please take the opportunity to do so. You will likely find useful information.
