Plenty of Opportunities to Choose From
Whether you are looking to participate with your home unit or you are looking to join Scouts from across the Western Massachusetts Council making up a Council contingent, there is a national high adventure base program for you. With four great options, you will be sure to find something for you. Swimming, sailing and SCUBA programs are offered at the Florida Sea Base, canoeing and winter camping at Northern Tier, Wild West back country experiences at Philmont Scout Ranch, and the BSA's newest property and the ultimate in high adventure, the Summit Bechtel Reserve.
