Historic High Adventure Trips

Troop 20’s summer High Adventure trips 

Each summer (and occasionally in the winter!) adults and scouts from Troop 20 travel the country and the world on different trips .  As a Troop, we believe that the engagement and excitement of a summer high adventure trip with Scouting friends helps form long-term bonds and a love of the outdoors and of adventure.
