High Adventure at The Summit

The Summit

Situated in the wilds of West Virginia, The Summit is a training, Scouting, and adventure center for the millions of youth and adults involved in the Boy Scouts of America. And anyone who loves the outdoors. And home to the National Scout Jamboree. And the Paul R. Christen National High Adventure Base which complements the three existing bases: Philmont Scout Ranch, Northern Tier, and Florida Sea Base.

As a variant on the normal summer camp experience. Scouts can opt to be taken to the Summit for several days during the week that their Troop attends camp to experience the excitement that a BSA high adventure base can offer.

Three days of programs including:

Repelling thru the tree canopy
1400 foot zip line
Cope course
Climbing wall
Mountain Biking
Whitewater rafting (New River)
Stand up waterboarding
Open evening activities

Campers will check-in at Durant on Sunday afternoon. Medical forms will be collected and swim checks will be conducted at this time. Sunday will include dinner, vesper service, and campfire. You will leave for The Summit after breakfast on Monday – traveling to West Virginia and arriving mid-afternoon. Programming begins on Tuesday morning and runs thru Thursday evening. Check-out and return to DURANT Friday after breakfast. You will check out from Durant either Friday evening or Saturday morning.
