Council High Adventure Opportunities


Philmont High Adventure - Each year the Illowa Council puts together a contingent that travels to the beautiful back country of the Boy Scouts of America's largest High Adventure Base. Philmont Scout Ranch provides an unforgettable adventure along its hundreds of miles of rugged, rocky trails. Program features combine the best of the Old West—horseback riding, burro packing, gold panning, chuckwagon dinners, and interpretive history—with exciting challenges for today—rock climbing, burro racing, mountain biking, and rifle shooting—for an unbelievable experience in fast-moving outdoor fun!

Sea Base Adventure - Occasionally a unit or two from the Illowa Council will seek participants for a High Adventure trip to Sea Base in the sunny Florida Keys.  This adventure gives a Scout the chance to explore underwater wonders using SCUBA techniques.  Boys can also find out what it's like to live aboard a boat for several days while practicing safe diving techniques.
