Great Medicine, the National Youth Leadership Training Conference, is a two-weekend training for youth leaders developed by the Boy Scouts of America and offered by the Northeastern Pennsylvania Council. The conference is an exciting, action-packed program designed to provide youth with 21st century leadership skills and experiences they can use in their home troops, crews and in other situations demanding leadership of self and others. Scoutmasters and Crew Advisers are encouraged to provide opportunities within their units for application and use of the leadership training learned at the conference so that the Scout applies the skills he or she learns during the conference. Great Medicine is conducted by a staff of top-level, Scouts and Leaders selected by the Council Training Committee.
