(including OA programs at HAB’s)

Status of summer 2020 operations
Covid 19 has brought unprecedented uncertainty, financial challenges, and an impact on our daily
lives. The leadership of the BSA and the National High Adventure Bases (HAB’s) recognize
that Scouts and leaders have been planning for many months to enjoy a life-changing High
Adventure experience

The health and safety of our participants and staff is our utmost concern. At this time, the
HAB’s plan to operate in the summer of 2020 if we can do so safely and within the guidelines of
the CDC.

On May 1st we will provide an update on the 2020 season specific to each National High
Adventure Base. We understand that crews need to make travel plans. However, by applying a
metered approach to the summer season, it allows the most flexibility in adjusting programs to
serve participants.

Refunds for summer 2020
The National Executive Committee will review the refund policy for the HAB’s and information
regarding those policies will be posted on May 1st.

Additional programs for summer/fall/Holiday 2020
HAB’s have added additional late summer/fall and Holiday 2020 programs and we encourage
you to review those. You can also move your 2020 adventure to 2021 (based on availability) and
keep the 2020 price. To view available dates for rescheduling, go to and click on buttons for “2021 Open Registration” and “2020
Open Registration in the 2021 and 2020 sections, respectively.

Wilderness First Aid and other required courses
We understand that courses such as Wilderness First Aid are currently unavailable. We are
working with the organizations that provide those training to have options for Crews. These
options will be posted on May 1st.

If you have a summer 2020 payment coming up and are either unsure if you should make the
payment or are having difficulty collecting payments, please contact the Registrar at the HAB
you are planning to attend.

Summer Staff
For those who have been hired for summer 2020 or are interested in being on staff, please
contact the HAB for more information regarding staff training dates or other factors.

State “Lockdowns” or “Stay at Home Orders”
If your state has an order that precludes travel during the time you are scheduled to attend a
HAB, please contact the Registrar at your HAB. That will be noted and taken into consideration
regarding the refund policy decision.
