Summit - High Adventure and James C. Justice National Scout Camp

(July 13-20, 2024)

In a first for the Troop, Troop 680 sent two groups to the Summit Bechtel Resrve in Glen Jean, WV., to participate in two different programs.  One group participated in the high adventure "Summit Experience" program from July 13-19 while the other group attended regular Scout camp at the James C. Justice National Scout Camp from July 14-20.  

The Summit Experience crew was the third crew Troop 680  has sent to the Summit for high adventure since the program opened in 2014. and by all acoounts, it was a great time.  Over the years the program has changed slightly and this year the crew had an opportunity to participate in half-day whitewater trip on the New River.  Other program opportunities remained largely unchanged and included:  mountain bikikng, BMX, skateboard, rifles, shotgun, archery, and climbing.

Scouts attending regular summer camp at Camp Justice had a great program and ample opportunities to earn Merit Badges, work on rank advancement, and participate in a variety of evening activities similar to what the high adventure crew experienced.  A few Scouts also decided to check out the 3/4 mile long "Big Zip" zipline.  The week concluded with an amazing campfire program in which Troop 680 contributed a fun and original skit.

Additional photos of both the High Adventure Crew and Justice Scout Camp Crew are available on the restricted pages.
