WV Summit (July 12-18, 2015)

posted Jan 10, 2015, 5:26 AM by Robert Brese

We have confirmed a Summit WV (http://summitbsa.org/) high adventure trip for the week of July 12-18, 2015.  You may choose to participate in either the Summit Experience OR the River Program.  Venturers may choose either program and will camp together, but will break into groups (if and as needed) for their daytime program.  Expect to leave from Burke very early July 12 and return the evening of July 18.

Sign-ups and a $250 deposit are due no later than January 19, 2015. We need a minimum of 7 participants, including at least 2 adults!

Summit Experience (Estimated Cost $1000 total): This is a seven-day/six night program running Sunday to Saturday. It consists of half-day introductory level experiences at each of the nine Summit high adventure venues. The Bows: archery (static, trail & sporting arrows courses); The Barrels: shotgun, rifle & pistol shooting; The Park: skate (vert ramps, half pipe, bowls & plaza); The Trax: BMX (pump, downhill, flat & jump tracks); The Zip: 3200 foot zip line; The Canopy: 3.5 hour forested canopy tours; Low Gear: 19 cross country mountain bike trails; The Ropes: 4 horizontal & one vertical challenge courses; and kayaking on Bravo Lake. In addition, each group will perform a half-day service project and have the chance to ride The Big Zip – our 3⁄4 mile zip line. In addition, each night (Monday-Friday), the Scott Summit Center will be open for activities, fun and socializing. The Scout Summit Center incorporates small versions of our adventure sports venues.

River Program (Estimated Cost $1200 total): This is a seven-day/six night program running Sunday to Saturday. It consists of one day of kayaking instruction at the Summit where BSA will assess what you already know and then, add to your skill set. Then, you will go for a day of kayaking the Upper New River followed by a day rafting the legendary Lower New with its world-renown Class III to Class V whitewater. As a bonus, each member of the crew will be able to select three additional elective activities at other Summit adventure venues (Scouts can choose their preference, the crew does not have to all do the same three). A half-day service project and a ride on the Big Zip – our 3⁄4 mile zip line – round out your week. Each night (Monday-Friday), the Scott Summit Center will be open for activities, fun and socializing.
