Potential 2022 Summit High Adventure

Posted on Sep 23 2021 - 4:24am

Some of our scouts have expressed an interest in attending Summit High Adventure in June 2022.  The proposed trek would be the New River Experience, a 6-day 50-mile whitewater rafting adventure. The cost would be approximately $1200 - $1500 per person.  Approximate dates would be June 9-18, 2022. You can read more about this high adventure trek here

If you are interested please sign up here.  This is not a commitment, only a show of interest.  Once we determine if we have enough people we will schedule a meeting to discuss next steps.

Medical Forms - Action Required!

On January 1, 2021, the former version of the BSA medical form became invalid, and ALL scouts and scouters are required to use the updated version of the Medical Form.  If your most recent medical form submission was not on the new form (the 2019 printing with sections A, B1, B2, and C) , please complete and submit two (2) copies of the new form to Jackie Lopina as soon as possible.  Also, please note that you cannot attach additional pages; you must complete the form sections as shown - this includes the immunization section.  You can find the new form on our web site here.

Please note that scouts and scouters will NOT be able to participate in activities unless they have provided a new medical form with at least sections A, B1, and B2 (these are the sections that are completed by the scout/scouter/parents).
