High Adventure Awards Program

The Council High Adventure Teams of Area IV approve and develop the trail awards. These awards are provided to Cubs, Scouts, Venturers, Girl Scouts and their leaders as an incentive to develop Pack or Troop outdoor programs. A description of the awards and the requirements for earning each can be found in two publications, produced in Orange County and provided to all Councils, the Cub Adventure Awards for Cubs and Webelos and the High Adventure Awards for Scouts and Explorers. Those award publications are published here in PDF format for download and reference. In addition links have been provided for access to the 'Wilderness Use Policy' and the 'Guide to Safe Scouting' as well as a link to assist in ordering the awards

HAT Award Placemat (A0 - 8pt font) v5.0.
