“A ship in the harbor is safe, but that is not what ships are for”.

AHOY! ALL HANDS ON DECK! Get ready to “SET SAIL” for another SUPERFANTASTIC year of KAY!

As clubs across the state start charting their course for the journey into the 2017-2018 school year, it is critical that the sailors and deck hands be prepared for what might lie ahead – an occasional rough sea, strong head winds, an unexpected leak or a broken compass.

“We cannot control the wind, but we can adjust the sail”.

With the summer of 2017 approaching, students are encouraged to make plans and take advantage of the opportunity to cruise to Rock Springs and “Set Sail” at KAY Leadership Camp (KLC). Our 5 day voyage is designed to explore Leadership, or as we like to say “LEAD-YER-SHIP”. Other ships that will be in the harbor are “Friendship, Ownership, Citizenship, Sportsmanship, Mentorship, Membership, & Scholarship” not to mention the brightly colored sails of “Character, Health, Service, Recreation, Appreciation and Leadership”.

At KLC, skills to assist you navigate, motivate and direct not only your club but your own ship as well will be taught in helpful, creative and unique ways. Embarking on this exciting adventure will be KAY student leaders from across the state as well as staff members from ports across the country.

“To reach a port we must sail, sometimes with the wind, and sometimes against it.
But we must not drift or lie at anchor”.

Participation in KAY and attendance at KLC provide student members with lifetime skills and the confidence and motivation to sail ahead and create a wake of leadership and service.

“Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than those you did do. So throw off your bowlines. Sail away from safe harbor. Catch the wind in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” (Mark Twain)
