High Adventure Team

The High Adventure Team is a group of volunteer Scouters who enjoy backpacking and working together to approve and develop trail awards, promote the High Adventure program, and provide training to adult leaders. The Basic Backpacking Training course provides the basics for new Leaders and information updates for those who are veterans.  At least one registered Adult Leader who has taken the HAT Basic Backpacking Training course must participate in any backpacking overnight outing.
