2014-07 High Adventure at the Summit


Instead of 1 of each trek offered, we are now only offering a ‘The Marksman’ Crew (shooting sports) and ‘The Summit Experience’ Crew (get to try everything).

Each crew is 5 youth and 2 adults. Two of the youth Marksman Crew spots have been reserved. The other 12 spots remain available.

There will be a postcard mailer going out to our older Boy Scouts and Venturers in the next week or so.


Only 12 Spots Left!   July 13-19 2014

The Summit Bechtel Family National Scout Reserve, aka the Summit, is the permanent site of the national Scout jamboree and home to the Boy Scouts of America's newest national high-adventure base. The Summit occupies 10,600 acres in West Virginia's New River Gorge region—a world-renowned adventure sports destination known for its world-class climbing rock and monster whitewater. 

The inaugural Summit high-adventure base programs will open in June 2014. Activities will revolve around four program tracks. In addition, participants will experience activities centered on our core mission areas: adventure, sustainability, leadership, and service.

Each adventure lasts seven days, with crews arriving each day beginning June 8, 2014, through Aug. 16, 2014. Each program track includes time at the Paul R. Christen National High Adventure Base at the Summit as well as one to three nights at outpost camps at the Summit or in the New River Gorge area.

The Summit will provide all food, tents, cots, and program equipment. Crews will provide sleeping bags and other personal gear.
