Adventure on your own terms.

The Summit: where adventure comes naturally

Family fun awaits! A trip to Family Adventure Camp is something that your family will remember forever, from its scenic hikes in the woods to adrenaline-pumping outdoor activities. The Summit Bechtel Reserve is located in the Appalachian Mountains of West Virginia, near the brand-new – New River Gorge National Park and Preserve. Discover why so many people call this land “Almost Heaven,” with its breathtaking natural beauty, abundant ecosystems, and many outdoor activities. When you choose Family Adventure Camp, your families will greet you every morning with a breath of fresh mountain air. A trip to the Summit is something that your family and friends will remember forever, and – be warned – they will want to keep coming back year after year.

Open to ALL Families; no BSA or Scouting affiliation required!
