You may wish to check out the Ben Delatour Scout Ranch at Red Feather
Lakes, Colorado. It also hosts the Elkhorn High Adventure Base. Both
have web pages with extensive information which can be located using a web
browser or the US Scouting Service links. Or, you can call Longs Peak
Council Program Director/Camp Director Dr. Terry Dunn at (970) 881-2144.
BDSR has 3700 acres in prime Rocky Mountain country nestled in with
National Forest land near the front range of the Rockies. Elevation is
about 8000 feet, so nights are cool, days are warm and pleasant. The
Elkhorn high adventure base is in it's second year and has been described
as comparable to Philmont with no waiting list. Outstanding programs
include rock climbing and rappelling, two C.O.P.E.S. courses; choice of
central dining or patrol cooking; fishing, hiking, aquatics, full merit
badge programs, whitewater rafting, horseback riding, and much more.
Elkhorn high adventure treks go out into the national forest and are seven
day rather than the longer Philmont style treks which may be appealing.
