backpacking

The high adventure group exists within the troop in order to provide a more challenging program to the older scouts than those offered to the troop as a whole. The group is scout run, they decide on the trips and do the planning to make the trips happen.

Membership Requirements:
The high adventure group is open to all scouts in the troop that are in 7th grade and have achieved the rank of 1st class or are in 8th grade and above.

The high adventure group is run by the scouts. They meet once a month to plan upcoming events. Trips are proposed by the scouts and one of them will take ownership, find out the details of doing such a trip and propose it to the full group.

Obviously, for this group to be successful, the scouts have to get involved. It is expected that all scouts in the high adventure group will particpate in the planning of the events.
