High Adventure Programs at the Summit Bechtel Reserve
High adventure at The Summit adds a new dimension to the Scouting experience. High adventure is not just about adrenaline and the wow factor, it’s about digging deep within yourself, finding out what makes you tick and discovering how to push beyond what you think you can do.
The Paul R. Christen High Adventure Base offers eleven programs within three program categories:
The Summit Experience program provides an introduction to all components of the SBR Adventure Zone;
Focused Programs allow Scouts and Venturers to focus primarily in one particular area of the SBR’s adventures and concentrate on developing their skills in that focus area while still having some time for elective choices, and;
Advanced Programs provide the opportunity to reach advanced skill levels in a single high adventure skill set.
