“Outdoor adventure is the promise made to boys when they join Scouting.” In the outdoors, Scouts have the opportunity to learn skills that make them more self reliant. Exploration, meeting challenges and experiencing difficulty develops character. The Kochemink Voyage is specifically intended to sharpen and deepen those basic skills that Samoset Scouts have already acquired in their home units. Learning by doing is a hallmark of outdoor education. This course is designed to instill competence and confidence in youth Scouts by arming them with the in-depth knowledge and practical application of the core outdoor skills used in the BSA program. In this 6 day action packed voyage, Scouts will spend 4 solid days of intense hands-on learning in four core skill areas: Field Cooking, Land Navigation, Pioneering and Realistic First Aid. While not a leadership course, a successful graduate will be inspired to take his outdoor adventures to new heights. Armed with the confidence of having no fear in taking on new challenges, the outdoor adventure question will change from “how?” to “how far?” Becoming a great leader requires personal skills – and The Kochemink Voyage is a great place to hone them in. The great outdoors will be the only classroom – and “fun” will be the order of the day. Cache is located on Boy Scout property and permission has been granted by Mike McCarthy, Scout Executive for Samoset Council BSA.
