High Adventure Base Information

Sea Base:

Since its inception, Scouting has been all about exploring and appreciating the wilderness. The Florida National High Adventure Sea Base offers a year-round
opportunity to explore a completely different type of wilderness—the underwater wilderness. The Florida Sea Base provides many vehicles to gain access to this
underwater wilderness—large sailing vessels, power boats, kayaks, and scuba equipment.
Imagine thousands of square miles of underwater coral formations, peaks, valleys, and literally hundreds of different types of colorful fish. Your mask will become
a kaleidoscope of colors as you glide effortlessly among pillars of coral and multihued fish. The warm, clear waters of the Florida Keys, the Bahamas, or St.
Thomas give you the sensation of weightlessness in this underwater wilderness.

Northern Tier

Northern Tier is the BSA’s oldest national High Adventure program, outfitting scouting groups for canoe trips since the summer of 1923. The Charles L Sommers Base has been home to the program since 1941.

North America’s Canoe Country, a vast series of navigable lakes and rivers spanning thousands of square miles, is one of the last great wildernesses on the continent. This boreal forest of waterfalls and bogs, bears and wolves, granite crags and waist-deep mud remains nearly as much of a wilderness as it was for the first fur traders who explored the area in the 1600s. Two centuries after the fur trade’s peak in the early 1800s, our participants still follow in the footsteps of the French-Canadian voyageurs, paddling the same waters and straining over the same portage trails.

Northern Tier is the Boy Scouts of America’s gateway to adventure in the Great Northwoods. In the Summer, scouts from Northern Tier’s three wilderness canoe bases explore millions of acres of pristine lakes, meandering rivers, dense forests and wetlands in Northern Minnesota, Northwest Ontario and Northeast Manitoba. In the winter, Northern Tier is home to the OKPIK Cold-Weather Camping program, the BSA’s premier winter high adventure program. Fall programming is also available.

Whatever your plans, Northern Tier staff will outfit your crew with state-of-the-art camping equipment as well as a highly trained staff member called an “Interpreter.”

Philmont Scout Ranch:

Summit Bechtel Reserve:

Situated in the wilds of West Virginia, the Summit Bechtel Reserve is a training, Scouting, and adventure center for the millions of youth and adults involved in the Boy Scouts of America. Summit programs take Scouts and Venturers to the limits of what they think they can do, and pushes them further.

It’s home to the National Scout Jamboree, the James C Justice National Scout Camp, the John D. Tickle National Training and Leadership Center, and the Paul R. Christen National High Adventure Base.

The Summit Bechtel Reserve was made possible through the generosity of donors who see the Summit’s adventures, programs, and technological opportunities as vital to addressing the evolving needs of youth.
