Troop/Team Representative - BSA High Adventure Opportunities

For real excitement beyond your council, it's hard to beat the national high-adventure bases of the Boy Scouts of America.  Designed for older Boy Scouts, Varsity Scouts and Venturers, each base offers the training, equipment, and support you will need to set out on wilderness treks that challenge your skills, strength, and willpower.

Philmont Scout Ranch
Explore the rugged high country of northern New Mexico on a backpacking trek, as a member of a conservation work crew, or by taking part in an advanced wilderness adventure.  Covering more than 137,000 acres of mountains, forests, prairies, and streams, Philmont is an inspiring backpacker's paradise.  Staffed camps in the backcountry offer program opportunities including rock climbing, black-powder rifle shooting, living history, horse-back riding, archaeology, environmental awareness, and many others.

Florida National High Adventure Sea Base
Explore the clear waters of the Florida Keys and Bahamas by various kinds of watercraft, including sailboats.  Snorkel and scuba dive among schools of brilliantly colored tropical fish.  Investigate a primitive island, search for the wreckage of galleons, cast your bait for sailfish in the Gulf Stream waters, practice windsurfing, and study the marine life of North America's only living coral reef.

Northern Tier National High Adventure Programs
The Sioux and Chippewa once traveled this northern lake country.  French-Canadian trappers followed, their canoes loaded down with furs.  Headquartered in the beautiful Superior-Quetico boundary waters of Minnesota, Ontario, Manitoba, the Northern Tier offers wilderness canoeing expeditions and programs featuring fishing and winter camping.
