High Adventure Awards

These are special patches earned on outings which require additional effort and skills. 

1.  A form might need to be pre-approved by a High Adventure Team ("HAT") counselor before the trip during the outing planning.

2.  An adult must be on the outing who is High Adventure Trained, and the trip requirements must be met.

3.  The form must then be signed by the HAT-Trained adult after the trip.

HAT outings may have skill or age requirements.  The more challenging outings are planned by and for the older Scouts who have the skills, experience, and maturity.

There are hundreds of HAT awards available from all the different councils.  To see more click on the links below to the individual Scout Council High Adventure Pages.
