The Planning Guide is a head start but is NOT all the information you need to be successful at the Summit Bechtel Reserve. Please review your program’s supplement document and appendices for the best program specific information you need to have an incredible experience in Southern West Virginia.
What Program are you Planning to Attend?
2023 Program Guides will be available in EARLY 2023.
While most of the information will remain the same there will be some notable changes. For example, tents are no longer provided for 2023 Scout Camp. They can be rented for an additional fee or units can provide their own.
Program supplements give you detailed information for the program your unit is attending. Please download the appropriate document for your experience(s) –
