A little background: In 2013, the Summit opened its doors as the Boy Scouts of America’s the 4th National High Adventure Base and the future home of all National Scout Jamborees. Some additional highlights include a partnership with West Virginia University where the Summit is a host site for Science Adventure School for thousands of sixth graders from around the state each fall. In recent years, the Summit has expanded operations to better serve the local community by hosting events for businesses and organizations.”
