Troop Troop 40 numerals High Adventure

High Adventure activities can be one of the most exciting and rewarding part of a Scout's career. High Adventure outings are intended for older, more experienced Scouts, and most have specific age requirements, usually 13 or 14 years old, depending on the nature of the activity and the physical abilities of the Scout.

Once every year, Troop 40 plans a high adventure activity. In the past, this has included trips to the Florida Sea Base , and to the Philmont Scout Ranch in Cimarron, NM.

We are looking into going to Sea Base for summer 2013. We need to determine interest ASAP so that we can enter a lottery for a crew slot. For more information, please see
