What's There: The Summit is the 4th and newest of the BSA national high adventure bases, and the closest to us -- only a 6 hour drive from home! 

The Summit Experience is the only itinerary that lets Scouts try BMX, skateboarding, mountain biking, zip lines, canopy tours, hunter's education, climbing, shooting sports, camping, and hiking all in one program. A rafting trip on the New River is also part of the itinerary. We'll be among some of the early visitors of the newest U.S. national park, New River Gorge.
