Kodiak High Adventure - Leadership Training Course

Kodiak is designed to be an adventure that pushes the boundaries of every participant¬óone that will encourage you to try new things that may be out of your comfort zone. It is an experience¬óbut one that has its underpinnings in the application of the leadership skills they learned in the Introduction to Leadership Skills for Troops or Crews, NYLT, and/or NAYLE. It is an adventure with a purpose. The Kodiak course teaches useable, relevant leadership skills that every teen can use, with nature as the trek outdoor classroom. Groups of 5-8 youth are taught five leadership commissions throughout the week by Kodiak instructors, by using a hands-on learning approach. Participants must be at least 13 and completed the eighth grade (or 14) but not yet 21. Venturers, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts and Youth Group members are welcome.
