In this final installment of What’s New at K-M in 2016, I would like to share with you our Mountain Man Adventure.
Almost every Scouting unit has one or two boys that are veterans to Scout camp. Not only have they earned most of the merit badges they need – and truly want to take another badge class – they also maintain their love of the great outdoors and want to go to camp.
Our Mountain Man Adventure is designed to connect with exactly this type of Scout. Boys in this program will have an opportunity to experience some high adventure outings and put to work all the Scouting skills they have learned in the past. They will get to spend two days in our ATV program with an ATV certification class and then an overnight ATV trek with a campout in the Kendall ghost town.
Then it’s off for a two-day river trek down the Missouri River. To finish off the week, boys will spend a day on our newly finished high COPE course, thirty feet above the ground, challenging themselves and their minds. This adventure is only for truly skilled scouts.
I hope you have enjoyed learning about some of the new changes coming to K-M this next year and we hope to see you at camp!
