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. 

Take a hike! The mountains of New Mexico offer the adventure that you have always dreamed about. Backpacking, rock climbing, western lore, living history, and the views from peaks over 10,000 feet tall will make memories that last a lifetime.

Make a splash! Head to the Florida Keys and dive into an amazing Florida Sea Base adventure and wade into more excitement than you ever thought possible. Snorkeling, SCUBA, boating, and beach camping are among the many possibilities.

Don't miss the boat! One of the most beautiful and remote parts of North America offers a unique opportunity for Scouts. Canoeing, hiking, fishing, and winter camping in and around the beautiful lakes of northern Minnesota and southern Canada await you at the Northern Tier.  

High Adventure is a chance to try something you may never experience again. So take adventure to the limit. You'll never forget it. 

​Scouts may receive Troop 31 funding to offset the cost of the adventure if they meet these requirements of the Committee:

  • They must be 14 years of age.
  • They must have the rank of Star or greater.
  • They must have 100% participation in four years of Tree Sales.
  • They must have completed three years at Massawepie BSA Camp
