The four programs are crew-based; crews consist of seven to 12 people, with the majority being participants.
Each program lasts seven days, with crews arriving each day beginning June 8, 2014, through Aug. 16, 2014. Each program track includes time at the Paul R. Christen National High Adventure Base at the Summit as well as one to three nights at outpost camps at the Summit or in the New River Gorge area.
The Summit will provide all food, tents, cots and program equipment. Crews will provide sleeping bags and other personal gear.
To participate in a high-adventure program, participants must be a registered Boy Scout, Varsity Scout, Venturer or registered adult leader. Participants must be at least 13 years old by Sept. 1 of the year of participation, meet the height and weight guidelines and have a current BSA Annual Health and Medical Record signed by a physician.
Fees are $595 per person for The River, $525 for Helmets & Harnesses, $665 for The Marksman and $560 for Wheels.
"Additionally, the BSA plans to use the Summit property for a variety of programs in the future; however, these plans are in the process of being finalized," Boy Scouts spokesman Deron Smith said in an email.
"The BSA plans to use the Summit property to the fullest extent possible and future plans include the Summit working with community partners and other organizations to offer additional programs and activities for the public. Also, the property may be used to host additional special events that are open to the general public."
The site will host future National Scout Jamborees, the next being held in 2017, as well as the next World Jamboree, held in 2019.
