The Summit Bechtel Family National Scout Reserve

Site ready to move into next development phase



Adding to the Summit’s sustainability — beyond the National Jamboree site and Paul R. Christen High Adventure Base — will be the future programming, Hartley said. 

Those programs include a National Scout Summer Camp in 2015 and a National Camp School and Training Center in 2016. 

The BSA has never operated one permanent facility of this magnitude, so what it will truly mean for the region’s economy is still foggy, but time will make that all clearer, Hartley said.
