I had heard the same thing. I even heard it last winter when I was
revising the High Adventure program guide for the Indianhead Council for

available from "firstname.lastname@example.org". It has information on 57 council
camps. It has information on all those listed in the last BSA guide as
well as many others.) Some people even said that I was even wasting my

Today I finally got an answer. YES, they did do one. It is called
"Passport to High Adventure" and has the number 4310. It will become
