General Requirements

Each of the local High Adventure Councils work together to offer these awards.  Through our Inter-Council HAT meetings we have agreed upon a base set of requirements for all awards, referred to as Area IV General Requirements.

How to Order Awards

How to order awards ...

High Adventure awards are ordered through the Councils that sponsor those awards.

While each Council has created their own award form to support the nuances of their program (e.g.: to collect specific leader information, trek information, planning verification, etc), in an effort to simplify cross-Council efforts, all Councils accept the award forms of all other Councils.  For practical purposes, this means that Units within the Orange County Council may use this attached form to order all awards from all Councils.
