High Adventure Programs and Photo Albums

There are special learning experiences available in scouting outside the realm of the troops council area. There are four national high adventure programs available to scouts. Because these adventures are of a high physical demand during a seven to 14 day outing in the wilderness, there are some minimum age requirements. Generally, the scout has to be no younger than thirteen or fourteen, depending on the specific program. The three national programs are:

Florida Sea Base   Islamorada, Florida  http://www.bsaseabase.org/   ----   Troop 61 attended Sea Base from July 26th to August 3rd, 2010

Northern Tier Canoe Base   Ely, Minnesota  http://www.ntier.org/


Philmont Ranch   Cimarron, New Mexico  http://www.philmont.com/


The Summit   New River Gorge, West Virginia http://www.summitblog.org/programs/ 

In addition to these three national level programs, there are 55 council high adventures and 17 more specific advanced programs. Here is a link for more information on these "High Adventures" http://usscouts.org/netresources/ha.asp
