High Adventure Programs

Get out of the house and into the excitement offered at one of the BSA's High Adventure Bases! You've got three choices: a unique aquatic quest at the Florida Sea Base; a canoeing or winter camping challenge at the Northern Tier; or a wild west backpacking expedition at the Philmont Scout Ranch. Local High Adventure opportunites can also be found nearby at Deer Lake Scout Reservation in Killingworth or at Camp Sequassen in New Hartford.
