Introducing the
Youth Adventure Kit for New Scouts

The YAKns includes only the absolute minimums items a (Boy/Girl) scout needs to get started.

Go here for the YAK Story (careful this is the long description)

The YAKns is a scaled down version of our flagship YAK, that includes  When we say everything, we mean EVERYTHING. In building this kit we consulted Outdoor wilderness camps, BSA, GSA, USA, USMC, high school outdoor education planners, BSA camp directors, outdoor experts, avid hikers, and campers, through hikers and day hikers, moms and dads.

The YAK is intended to be your students Outdoor Adventure Toolbox.  They will not need each item for each trip.  

    The point is the YAK is a toolbox, as they mature and prepare for different adventures, their YAK will be ready to support them.

    We believe so much in this kit that our own children use it when they are out adventuring.
