High Adventure openings for Florida Sea Base, Philmont, and The Summit in 2015 and 2016

December 21, 2014

The Mid-America Council is dedicated to ensuring every youth has an opportunity to attend a BSA High Adventure Base.  Some are provided through a contingent experience, which means the trip is organized through a committee of volunteers in the Mid-America Council, and may contain Scouts and adults from all over the council.  See the opportunities below!

Council contingent fees are all inclusive.  The fee includes the program fee, all travel costs, meals, and special mementos for the Mid-America Council contingent. 

Individual or group registrations accepted.  Philmont, Florida Sea Base, and Northern Tier require all youth must be 14-years of age, or 13-years of age and have completed the 8th grade. Summit requires all youth must be 13-years of age by September 1 of the year attending.  No exceptions.

Questions?  Please contact the Council High Adventure Chair, Hunter Horste.
