High Adventures Opportunities

Troop and Crew Adventures:

Boy Scout Troop and Venturing Crew may want to sign up for the excitement offered at one of the BSA's High Adventure Bases! You've got four choices: a unique aquatic quest at the Florida Sea Base; a canoeing or winter camping challenge at the Northern Tier; a wild west backpacking expedition at the Philmont Scout Ranch; or an adventure sports paradise at the Summit. High Adventure is a chance to try something you may never experience again.

The Philmont Training Center (PTC) is the only national volunteer training center for the Boy Scouts of America. Since 1950, PTC has provided a unique environment for training volunteer and professional leaders, and a fun family program for every member of the family. Each year, more than 6,000 Scouters and family members attend PTC.  Each conference features the latest tools and techniques, audiovisuals, discussions, idea sharing, and activities led by a faculty of experienced Scouters. All registered Scouters are invited to attend training center courses; council approval is no longer required.
