Introduction

Kodiak Camp is a name we have given to a High adventure activity based missionary preparation camp for Aaronic Priesthood boys 15 years and older. The course began in 2007 and has had over 2,100 participants attend. It is located in Star Valley Wyoming and includes, white water rafting, rappelling, the polar plunge, sword fighting, sports shooting and other fun activities each tied in with a spiritual lesson. The camp is led by experienced certified leaders with returned missionaries working with the boys and mentoring them. Boys will get up early like they would on a mission and study the gospel as companions. This course is designed as a three night, 4 day course for Priest aged boys in a stake or ward.
