Check out the Summit

We’ve all heard about Scouting’s newest High Adventure facility, the Summit Bechtel Reserve located near Beckley, WV, but most of us don’t know much about it. That’s going to change.

The Philmont Staff Association and Summit management are pleased to invite SAA members and their guests to the PSA Weekend at the Summit June 19 and 20, 2015. For those of you with children aged 11 years (for Summit activities) and 12 (for whitewater rafting) and up, this will be the most action-packed family weekend the PSA has ever offered.

On Friday, June 19, you’ll get your eyelids peeled back whitewater rafting on the gnarliest section of the famous New River Gorge rapids and on Saturday, June 20, you will participate in all the activities at the Summit’s Action Point and get a broad sampling of the program the Summit offers. When you leave, you’ll have a good idea of what the Summit is all about.

The cut-off date for purchasing rafting and meals is June 13. For more information (including lodging) and to register on-line visit

The Summit is located near Beckley, WV, (limited air service) and 1.5 hours from Charleston, WV (good air service). There are plenty of nearby sites and activities which allow your visit to West Virginia to become a fullblown family vacation.
