High Adventure

Scouts have been voyaging into the great wide wilderness to seek adventure for more than 100 years and the national camping programs offered by the Boy Scouts of America deliver just that - high adventure in some of the most beautiful terrain on earth.

National Jamboree



Imagine 50,000 Scouts, Venturers, volunteers, and staff from all over the country, all gathered together for one big celebration of high adventure Scouting at the NATIONAL JAMBOREE. Held once every four years, at the Summit Bechtel Family National Scout Reserve in the mountains of West Virginia, high adventure never looked so enticing with whitewater rafting, zip-lining, rappelling, mountain biking, hiking, camping out with friends, meeting new friends, and learning new skills. For 10 days, there are exhibits, stadium shows with entertainment, opportunities to work on merit badges — there's something for everybody.

 

Florida Sea Base

The FLORIDA NATIONAL HIGH ADVENTURE SEA BASE, located in Islamorada and on Summerland Key in the Florida Keys, is a unique Scouting program that offers an aquatics-based learning experience. Whether your interests lie in sailing, scuba diving, rustic camping on an undeveloped barrier island, fishing or a combination of all of these, this is the place for your troop or crew.

 

Northern Tier


Since 1923, Scouts have been voyaging into the great north wilderness to seek adventure. Eagles soaring overhead, walleye swimming in the depths of pristine lakes, meeting a moose on the portage trail - Northern Tier High Adventure Program is the ONLY outfitter in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area and Canada charged by the Boy Scouts of America to deliver the Scouting program to Scouts and Leaders adventuring into North America’s Canoe Country. Some of the best weather, snow conditions, facilities, and terrain for cold weather camping in North America are offered through the OKPIK Adventure program in Ely, Minn. OKPIK provides a highly-trained staff to help you learn cold weather camping skills such as dog sledding, cross country skiing, snowshoeing, clothing and sleeping systems, snow shelter building, animal tracking, cold weather cooking, and ice fishing.

Philmont


Born in 1938 as Philturn Rockymountain Scoutcamp, today’s Philmont Scout Ranch is a bustling center for high adventure and training. Philmont Scout Ranch is the Boy Scouts of America’s oldest national high-adventure base. Its 34 staffed camps and 55 trail camps provide an unforgettable adventure in the high country along hundreds of miles of rugged, rocky trails. The area surrounding the ranch is rich with history, from the Native Americans who made this arid land their home to the land barons of the 19th century. The town of Cimarron boasts a number of historical buildings, including the St. James Hotel—site of at least 26 killings during Cimarron’s wilder days. Visit PHILMONT SCOUT RANCH.
