High Adventure is any activity that requires special training or skills to participate safely and effectively. High adventure activities include horseback riding, archery, kayaking, rock climbing, backpacking, and many, many more. For a full list of high adventure activities and what you need to do to participate in them safely, please read the Safety Activity Checkpoints section below.
Girl Scouts participate in high adventure experiences that are truly transformative. Paddle a canoe, shoot a bow and arrow, or challenge yourself on our high ropes course above the tree tops. The experiences will build your confidence as you take-risks and get outside your comfort zone. Challenge yourself at your level and learn new skills as you progress in the outdoors.
NEW Method for Reserving High Adventure Areas at Our Camps: Beginning August 21, High Adventure areas will be reserved using a method similar to Day Use reservations rather than designated timeslots. For more information, please read this document.
What is High Adventure?
Safety Activity Checkpoints
Girl Scouts USA provides all Councils with guidelines and regulations for high adventure activities called the Safety Activity Checkpoints (SACs). Each Council can modify the SACs to fit their specific needs. Please familiarize yourself with the Safety Activity Checkpoints of any high adventure activity you intend to partake in, whether it is through the Council or an outside vendor.
