Surrounded by world class white water rafting, kayaking, rock climbing, mountain biking and more, The Summit Bechtel Reserve is nestled on more than 10,000 acres adjacent to the New River Gorge, West Virginia. This facility will be the newest High Adventureā„¢ Base as well as the permanent home to Scouting's National Jamboree.

The Summit will not only host the National Jamboree and be Scouting's fourth High Adventure Baseā„¢, but will also serve as a summer camp and year-round training facility for tomorrow's leaders. Venturers will also find a new home in the hills of West Virginia and will be invited to join the biggest party in Scouting at the 2013 Jamboree.

How could you not be excited about the next 100 years of Scouting?

There is no better place to host the Boy Scouts of America than West Virginia's New River Gorge. Within quick driving distance of multiple airports and urban areas, The Summit will combine travel convenience with real action and adventure. Scouts and Scouters from across the world will have easy access to the wild and wonderful wilderness in West Virginia.

So what is there to do at The Summit? In short, plenty.

Scouts and Scouters will have their choice between whitewater rafting and kayaking, hiking, rock climbing, mountain biking, zip line canopy tours and camping. There will also be winter sports, community service opportunities and plenty of chances for rank advancement. Those are just the activities that are sure to be there too :)
