Live Scouting’s Adventure – You’ll join more than 15,000 Scouts from all over the country, as they enjoy 10,600 acres of wild, wonderful West Virginia at the Summit. Whitewater rafting and kayaking, rock climbing and bouldering, and mountain biking are just a few of the activities offered at the Summit. There’s also skateboarding, BMX, shooting sports, and zip-line challenge courses. And that’s just the beginning……

The adventure includes a life changing trip to the Summit Bechtel Reserve, Mount Hope, West Virginia, and four days touring Washington DC.
