Blog2014 Programs Sneak Peek: The River

Posted on June 19, 2013 by
Understanding the river is to understand life.

What’s beyond the 2013 National Scout Jamboree?

Check out the video above for a hint.

That’s just a glimpse of the action you’ll find next summer at The River, one of four programs offered at the Summit from June 8 to August 16, 2014.

The River is a weeklong program that offers a dynamic learning environment. It all starts on flat water with the fundamentals, then adds in whitewater skills on gentle whitewater. The program culminates with a world-class whitewater run through the New River Gorge on class II-VI whitewater.

The River is more than just whitewater, however, as Summit program architects have woven the Summit core values—adventure, sustainability, service, and leadership—into each step of the way.

After all is said and done, you’ll be taking home skills—and memories—to last a lifetime.

What’s your favorite river experience and what did it teach you?
