High Adventure Trips
Our troop has participated in several High Adventure trips over the past few years. These trips are targeted to our older scouts. During a High Adventure trip, scouts will engage in many activities ranging from canoeing to hiking to sailing. Here are some of our recent trips and locations including some fun pictures!
The Northern Tier High Adventure Camp is located in Ely, Minnesota. Troop 349 went to Northern Tier in 2021. At Northern Tier, you can spend your time canoeing, fishing, or just hanging out with other scouts!

The James River canoeing trip stretches across the James River in Virginia. Troop 349 went on the James River canoeing trip in 2018. Scouts paddle 60+ miles of the historic James River, experiencing class I and class II rapids. You also have the opportunity to fish during your trip. Scouts camp nightly at riverside locations along the way.
The Philmont Scout Ranch is located in Cimarron, New Mexico. This is Troop 349’s most popular camp, as we’ve been to it 3 times (2012, 2015, 2017, and 2022). Philmont Scout Ranch challenges scouts with more than 200 square miles of rugged northern New Mexico wilderness. Backpacking, horseback riding, and training programs offer scouts many ways to experience this part of the country.

The Ciganka sailing trip is located in the Abaco Islands in the Bamamas. Troop 349 went to Ciganka in 2016. The troop utilized a 78 ft commercial sailboat in the amazing Abaco Islands in the beautiful Bahamas. We learned to sail during the day and explored different islands, beaches, and reefs. And every night we anchored and slept on the deck and in the rigging.
