Do you like high adventure?  Do hiking, canoeing, sailing, or white water rafting interest you?  If so, you don't want to miss this meeting.  We'll have scouts and scouters who have experienced these adventures on hand to share the opportunities that are available.  From Philmont to Sea Base to Northern Tier to Summit Bechtel to "design your own" high adventure, the possibilities are endless.  Come join us to see if there is anything your crew may want to try.
