Summit Bechtel Reserve (SBR), one of four high adventure camps that host Boy Scouts of America Scouting, is thrilled to announce its opening daily to the public beginning Sept. 9th. Many of the high adventure activities available to members of the Scouts will now be open to everyone.

Summit Day Passes offer three wonderful ways to experience SBR.

  • General Admission ($15) – hiking and mountain biking trails, self-guided Sustainability Treehouse tours, Stand Up Paddleboarding, kayaking, canoeing, fishing access, skateboarding, and scootering.
  • Activity Pass ($30) – includes all general admission activities AND ziplining, Laser Shot, Hunters Hall Hunting Museum, hatchet and knife throwing, guided archery, and guided mountain biking tour.
  • Ridge Pass (an additional $50) – is an add-on to General Admission or Activity Passes and includes 5-Stand shotgun clays, pistol, rifle, long-range archery, and Laporte Archery.

The best part is you can bring your own gear or rent from us.

Opening Weekend is September 9 through 11 (and will be open daily thereafter) from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. You will find the Summit Bechtel Reserve in Glen Jean, West Virginia, just minutes away from the Interstates 77/64 at the North Beckley exit.


Summit passes and prices, along with information on available activity days/ times, are now available for purchase at www.submitbsa.org/adventuredaypass. *Blackout dates may apply.
