High Adventure Programs
The thrill of our High Adventure Bases runs far and wide across America. Nobody in the world is better at sharing those experiences than the Scouts. Nobody.
Nobody offers more exhilarating or a wider variety of high adventure for young people than the Boy Scouts of America. Through high adventure experiences, the BSA leaves lasting memories with youth and fosters development in character and leadership.
Why High Adventure?
• Keeps older youth and Eagle Scouts interested in Scouting.
• Gives Scouts and Venturers a challenge.
• Exciting experiences that will be remembered for a lifetime.
• Great experiences for adult leaders too!
