The Kodiak Challenge
The Kodiak Challenge is designed to be an adventure that pushes the boundaries of every participant — one that will encourage you to try new things that may be out of your comfort zone. It is an experience — but 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, as is all of Scouting, an adventure with a purpose.
Participants must be at least 14 years old and have completed the eighth grade. They must be registered as either a Boy Scout or Venturer. In addition, they must have completed the Introduction to Leadership Skills course for their unit type. NYLT is highly recommended, and NAYLE experience is a plus, as a better understanding of the leadership skills before the trek enhances the experiential learning process during the trek itself. Participants must be able to pass a BSA swimmer test.
What to Expect
Participants should expect to be challenged both physically and mental through a variety of activities. Activities will include a water adventure, a day of COPE and climbing, tour of Antietam Battlefield, and other awesome activities that you will help decide.
