As has been pointed out, BSA's "Passport to High Adventure" has a
comprehesive listing already in print.
Our troop has participated in national high adventure bases. We also do a
large amount of "home grown" high adventure programs. Planning and
carrying out your own high adventure program saves money, and allows you
to custom design a program to meet your specific program needs, ability
level, budget, and schedule. The actual process of planning the trip is a
great experience by itself.
I would be interested in hearing about what other "home grown" high
adventure programs units have put on. My greatest high adventure
experiences have been from the ones we have put together ourselves.
Maybe that would be a new thread...
