Kodiak Challenge at MSR, June 22 - 29, 2013
The Kodiak Challenge is unique in that it is offered in a trek format. Kodiak is the opportunity to put the leadership skills learned in ILSC or NYLT to use in a fun way that is internalized by the participants. In other words, it is a challenging trek with simple and fun leadership skills included. Kodiak is not taught indoors or in a classroom; it is done completely outdoors using nature’s examples of leadership. Click here for more information or to register.
