Nestled deep in the Northeast Georgia mountains, among miles of hiking trails, whitewater rivers abundant, we have several High Adventure programs available. We offer the perfect opportunity for you to experience the ultimate in excitement. In the summer we offer week-long programs, weekend programs are available for the remainder of the year.
All of the High Adventure programs are open to all individuals who are at least 14 years of age or 13 years old and completed 8th grade when they plan to participate in the program.
The Climbing Program offers climbing and rappelling for beginners and experienced climbers on tower and live rock. The program is open to all individuals who are at least 14 years of age or 13 years old and completed 8th grade when they plan to participate in the program and Scout Leaders.
The Project C.O.P.E. (Challenging Outdoor Personal Experience) program is offered at both Camp Rainey Mountain and Scoutland. The program is composed of group and individual initiative games, trust events, low-course events and high- course events.
The Shooting Sports Program offers Venturers, Explorers and older Boy Scouts the opportunity to shoot rifles, shotguns, pistols, and archery.
If you have Scouts and Venturers who enjoy whitewater rafting and want to move up to something more challenging, whitewater kayaking is the program for them. Even if they have no whitewater experience, the program is designed for beginners, so it’s a good choice for anyone who wants to try it.
