Alpine Adventure Camp at Tahosa High Adventure Base

For troops or crews looking for a more adventurous summer camp experience, look no further than Alpine Adventure, an extreme backpacking experience based out of Tahosa High Adventure Base. This high adventure program is geared towards older Scouts who are looking for a true mountaineering adventure. Glissade down snowfields, rock climb in a true backcountry environment, learn about weather patterns and ecology of the area, summit peaks of more than 13,000 feet in elevation while experiencing the backcountry adventure of a lifetime! 

Check Out A Spectacular View – Hike Alpine Adventure

Participants will hike 30 – 50 miles over the course of a week in the Indian Peaks Wilderness. Each adventure is accompanied by a trained guide, who will educate Scouts about mountaineering skills and practices. Throughout the week, Scouts will learn how to work as a team, develop leadership skills, increase self-confidence, and advance outdoor skills, all while hiking through the unspoiled scenery of the Rocky Mountains. 

Traverse steep and rocky trails weaving along the Continental Divide, bagging a few 13,000 feet peaks in the process. Scouts will learn teamwork and group problem-solving skills taking on major day-to-day leadership positions such as making decisions on which route to take, where to pitch camp for the evening, and dividing out campsite chores like cooking and cleaning. There is no better program out there to reinforce and strength patrol unity!
