High Adventure / Sports

The High Adventure/Sports field of emphasis provides every Varsity Scout team with interesting and challenging physical activities. Through the efforts of the Programs Manager and adult advisor, team members can become skilled in activities ranging from snow camping to soccer. Once the team completes its training, it can plan and take part in high-adventure opportunities and or sports activities.

The opportunities for high adventure that are available to Varsity Scouts are limited only by their imaginations. Among the many great possibilities are the following high-adventure activities:

  • Hiking
  • Canoeing
  • Rafting
  • Kayaking
  • Horse Riding and Packing
  • Cross Country Skiing
  • Snow Boarding
  • Rock Climbing
  • Caving
  • Bicycle Touring
  • In addition to learning and practicing the skills needed to enjoy activities they choose, many Varsity Scout teams also set their sights on extended experiences at BSA High-Adventure bases.
