Outback High Adventure Program

The Outback High Adventure program includes activities for older Scouts who are looking to move beyond the merit badge program into high-energy, thrilling, and FUN week-long programs. Some programs take place in the backcountry of Camp Raven Knob's 3,200-acre property, and others spend time off-site in local state parks, trails, and outposts. Scouts and Venturers must be at least 14 years of age in order to participate in Outback High Adventure programs.
