Looking For More High Adventure?

The Boy Scouts of America has three national high adventure bases – each offering a unique program experience.

And the annual Suffolk County Council expeditions to each base offer to you (a single Scout, Venturer or small group) the opportunity to experience their individual challenges.

Take a look at the general descriptions below of the BSA High Adventure Bases. Each can link you to the individual base website for more detailed program info, and to information on how the Suffolk County council can get you there!

Some restrictions apply:

  • Boy Scout youth must be 14 years of age by the departure day of the expedition.
  • All Venturers are eligible to participate.
  • Applicants for adult leader positions must be registered members of the Boy Scouts of America.
  • ALL participants (youth and adult) must comply with the Boy Scouts of America’s maximum height/weight standards.

Have a special presentation made to your unit’s members and parents outlining the opportunities available!

Contact Frank Bailey (phone number above) to arrange for a visit from the council high adventure team!

Philmont Scout Ranch

Born in 1938 as Philturn Rockymountain Scoutcamp, today’s Philmont Scout Ranch is a bustling center for high adventure and training. Youth and adults take advantage of the ranch’s camping, training, and work programs. Most activity takes place during the summer, but Philmont also offers its Fall Adventure and Kanik winter program.

More than 860,000 Scouts, Venturers, and leaders have experienced the adventure of Philmont since the first camping season in 1939. Throughout its existence, conscientious attention to low-impact camping techniques have helped maintain the ranch’s wilderness flavor.

The area surrounding the ranch is rich with history, from the Native Americans who made this arid land their home to the land barons of the 19th century. The town of Cimarron boasts a number of historical buildings, including the St. James Hotel – site of at least 26 killings during Cimarron’s wilder days.
