The largest-ever NYLT course for the Far East Council was held in Taiwan from June 23 to 28!  41 student participants and 13 youth staff attended from every country represented in the Far East Council:  Taiwan, Philippines,Thailand, Korea, Japan, and Okinawa.  7 female Venturing Crew members also were among the students—another record!  The week was unforgettable under the leadership of Scoutmaster Bryson and a highly energized and highly experienced youth staff that led the students in songs, learning modules, and more fun than they imagined possible!  The week created some unforgettable memories, friendships, and leadership growth.
