High Adventure Troop Program Feature

High Adventure Troop Program Feature

High adventure can mean a lot of different things to Scouts. It might mean backpacking on rugged mountain trails, canoeing in the Boundary Waters of the United States and Canada, sailing a large vessel off the coast of Florida, visiting a major city and seeing the sights, or trekking to a remote outpost at your council summer camp.
