An All-Inclusive Scouting Week
For those troops who want to kick back and relax, the traditional summer camp schedule gives Scouts the opportunity to move forward in rank with our Trail to Eagle program and earn merit badges like climbing, first aid, archery, environmental science, and wilderness survival.
Scouts can also cool off and go for a swim in our spring fed lake as well as take out canoes and kayaks. Older Scouts can experience our high ropes course with Project COPE or participate in our introduction to backpacking program: Tahosa Trek, which takes them on a three day mini-trek in Rocky Mountain National Park.
Schedules? We Don't Need No Stinking Schedules!
Troops interested in planning and leading their own programs have a wider range of options available to them. In this program, adult leaders generally act as the merit badge instructors, troops cook their food in their campsites, and evening programs are run by your Senior Patrol Leader and Scouts. Tahosa High Adventure Base staff is on hand for support when needed, but generally play a more minor role in day-to-day activities.
In all schedules, troops provide their own tents and have the flexibility of either eating prepared meals in the dining hall or cooking their own food in their campsite. Each campsite has its own latrine equipped with pit toilets and hand washing stations and showering facilities are also available.
An 18 acre lake, various hiking trails, program support buildings, and a dining hall are just some of the additional facilities Tahosa High Adventure Base has to make your week amazing!
