The BSA already has a publication with this information. It's called
"Passport to High Adventure" (#4310). It should be available at all
council Scout Shops. <http://www.scouting.org/nav/volunteers.html>
There is also a non-BSA published book titled "Scout Camps USA"
<http://www.scoutcampsusa.com/> which provides information on over 400 Scout
camps and high adventure bases. My council's Scout Shop sells it. I
suspect others do too.
