Your unit Adventure may be as simple as an overnight backpacking trip or bike ride, or maybe it is a week-long or longer activity. The Adventure Plan (TAP) is a tool to guide unit leaders—Cubs, Scouts, Venturers, and Sea Scouts— through all stages of Adventure planning. Outdoor adventure is a key element of youth development in the Scouts BSA programs. Just as young people grow, learn and mature in a continuing progression of experience, so, too, do the camping and outdoor programs of the Scouts BSA. If you’re ready to plan your adventure, attend the Mini-session!
