Canoe up to 150 miles down the "Mighty MO", visiting State and National Parks along the way. Camp in a diverse series of settings, from primitive campsites along the river to "city camping" in Sioux City. See areas of the Missouri River rarely seen by travelers since the days of Lewis and Clark; stop along the way on remote islands and sandbars that have virtually never felt a human foot.


On your expedition, you can expect great programming at some of the following stops: Little Sioux Scout Ranch: All Expeditions begin and end at LSSR, in the beautiful Loess Hills in Iowa. Crews will get specialized river canoe training, including water rescue and river navigation, to aid them on their journey.


MAC High Adventure Contingents
The Mid-America Council is dedicated to providing our youth with unparalleled experiences, especially in the outdoors. The BSA operates four premiere high adventure bases: Philmont Scout Ranch, Florida Sea Base, Northern Tier, and the Summit Bechtel Reserve. Throughout the four bases, there is a program opportunity available for every youth!

The Mid-America Council is dedicated to ensuring that every youth has an opportunity to attend a BSA High Adventure Base. Some are provided through a “contingent” experience, which means that the trip is organized through a committee of volunteers in the Mid-America Council and may contain Scouts and adults from all over the council.

The Mid-America Council High Adventure Committee has released the planned high adventure contingents for 2016-2018!  For additional information of any upcoming adventures, contact the High Adventure Chairman Hunter Horste at hmhorste@gmail.com or 317-626-1994 or Scouter Services at 402-431-9272.  Visit the MAC High Adventure Facebook page for continuous updates!

Philmont Training Center
