High Adventure

Camping and outdoor programs have been at the heart of Scouting for more than 104 years. The Boy Scouts of America, Alamo Area Council is committed to providing excellent outdoor programs for youth of all ages at our unique council properties - Bear Creek Scout ReservationExternal Link, McGimsey Scout ParkExternal Link, and the Mays Family Scout RanchExternal Link.

In addition to the Alamo Area Council's local camping facilities and outdoor programs, the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) provide an invitation to challenge yourself at BSA's High Adventure Bases. No-one offers a more exhilarating or wider variety of high adventure for young people than the Boy Scouts of America. Through high adventure experiences, BSA leaves lasting memories with youth, and fosters development in character and leadership.

From the aquatic adventures of Florida Sea Base to the canoeing or winter camping challenge of Northern Tier; from the backpacking expeditions at Philmont Scout Ranch to the adventure sports programs at The Summit Bechtel Reserve; these experiences will shape you and teach you about yourself. Will you answer the call? 

High Adventure Forms can be found within our Camping FormsExternal Link section, and Camp Scholarships may also be available to help get you there.
