Summit Visitor Passes let Scouting family, friends experience the thrills this summer

This summer, while everyone else is stuck at home or the office, treat yourself and your Scouting family and friends to a weekend at the Summit Bechtel Reserve.

Zip down the zip lines, glide around the skateboard park, test your accuracy shooting a bow and arrow at moving targets and so much more. And do it all for a great price.

This week, the Summit introduces its hotly anticipated Summit Visitor Passes, a chance for our Scouting family and friends to try the same activities attendees at the jamboree enjoyed last summer.

Buy your Summit Visitor Passes today.

The Walter Scott Summit Center is open Fridays and Saturdays beginning June 13 and ending Aug. 16.

There are two types of passes available: Visitors and Action. Visitors, which is a little cheaper, is good for those members of your group who want to visit the Summit but aren’t interested in the action and adventure-sports activities. Action, on the other hand, is for those who want it all.

You can select from single-day or single-weekend. More details after the jump.
