High Adventure

We have programs aimed at Scouts of all experience levels and ranks.   Older scouts may participate in High Adventure activities, National or World Jamborees, and Venturing.  We have several High Adventure Trips each year.  The following is a summary of the High Adventure programs that we have attended, details/guides of each, and the history of our attendance at each.  We always are planning for upcoming High Adventure Treks.  If you are interested, check out our announcements for upcoming treks.


The Summit

The Summit Bechtel Family National Scout Reserve, New River Gorge, West Virginia.

The Summit (SBR) is the newest high-adventure base in Scouting, the permanent home of the national Scout jamboree, and the site of the 2019 World Scout Jamboree. Through outdoor action sports and experiential learning programs at world-class facilities, the Summit fosters achievement, adventure, and innovation in Scouting.

The Summit property is on 10,600 acres adjacent to the New River Gorge National River area. That means access to incredible outdoor terrain in the Appalachian Mountains that provides a home for some of the world’s best whitewater rafting, rock climbing, and mountain biking.
