The Scott Summit Center incorporates small versions of our adventure sports venues and we are planning special events for the Orion Program Participants:  think shows, Appalachian activities and special guests.

The Orion Project will be the pinnacle of adventure in 2021!

If you have a squad of Scouts between 1 and 4,000 (yes, we will take provisional scouts) ready for adventure in Southern West Virginia, you can continue your planning by registering them at the following link.

We are confident that our excellent staff and world class facilities at Summit Bechtel Reservation will deliver an innovative and exciting program.  Everyone needs to get back to Scouting in the outdoors.
