The Kodiak Challenge is advanced leadership training for young men and women in a high adventure setting, stressing servant leadership and the practical application of ILST, NYLT and NAYLE skills. This is a hands-on skills course conducted under the open sky, not a classroom. You’ll be pushed out of your comfort zone, tested mentally and physically as your leadership skills grow.
Kodiak Challenge is an adventure with a purpose. Kodiak Challenge treks will be determined by the participants. Kodiak Challenge is not about the trek; it is about leadership skills. Treks do not have to be hikes. They can be anything that provides some challenge to participants. The 2024 trek will utilize Camp Comer as a base of operations. Possible activities might include white water rafting, canoeing, shooting, hiking, fishing, caving, horseback riding, ziplining, and just about anything the participants can come up with.
The trek is a minimum 5-day experience with 1 or 2 days of pre-meetings to determine and plan for the trek. The trek is followed one week later by an in-person or virtual ‘After The Trek’ meeting for 1-2 hours.
Youth (Age 14 – 20): $300
