What is the Council Adventure Partnership?

The Council Adventure Partnership provides opportunities for local council camps to use venues at the Summit Bechtel Reserve to serve older youth attending their council summer camps. Participants attend the local council camp with their home troop or crew. Then, the local council camp forms a provisional group that travels to the Summit to spend several days in adventure activities before returning to the local council camp to finish out the week with their home troop or crew. This program is only available through a local council located within a reasonable driving distance of the Summit Bechtel Reserve and for the following dates while the James C. Justice Scout Camp is operating.
