High Adventure

Many older Scouts, Varsity Scouts, Explorers, and Venturers consider high adventure the highlight of their outdoor Scouting experiences. With guidance from their adult leaders, they can plan and safely carry out high-adventure treks using Leave No Trace techniques. Older youth seek out these programs; it's what keeps them high on Scouting. High adventure challenges and inspires them—and their leaders—and broadens their appeal for Scouting. This is why Scoutmasters and Advisors must make high-adventure opportunities a priority, promoting participation by unit members who are qualified for these elite outdoor activities.

Nashua Valley Council has received an allotment for 5 crews to attend Philmont in 2015. This will permit a total of 60 Scouts and Scouters from Nashua Valley Council to partake in one of Scouting’s most exciting high adventure opportunities. 

The contingent will depart the Boston area on Tuesday, July 14, 2015, arrive at Philmont on Thursday, July 16, 2015 and return home on Tuesday, July 28, 2015.

Florida Sea Base

Make a splash! Head to the Florida Keys and dive into an amazing Florida Sea Base adventure and wade into more excitement than you ever though possible. Snorkeling, SCUBA, boating, and beach camping are among the many possibilities.

 

Northern Tier

Don't miss the boat! One of the most beautiful, and remote parts of North America offers a unique opportunity for Scouts. Canoeing, hiking, fishing, and winter camping in and around the beautiful lakes of northern Minnesota and southern Canada await you at the Northern Tier.

 

Philmont Scout Ranch

Take a hike! The mountains of New Mexico offer the adventure that you have always dreamed about. Backpacking, rock climbing, western lore, living history, and the views from peaks over 10,000 feet tall will make memories that last a lifetime. High Adventure is a chance to try something you may never experience again. So take adventure to the limit. You'll never forget it.

 

High Adventure Directory

The BSA high-adventure program directory is a service to all units desiring to locate a high-adventure program opportunity at any local council. The directory lists all council-operated high-adventure trekking programs that span at least five nights and six days. A few programs of lesser duration are included as specialty adventure programs.
