High Adventure Opportunities


This fun adventure on Lake Murray is open to crews of three to four Boy Scouts ages 14 years and up. These crews will take sailboats out into the “Big Water” on Lake Murray for a week. Departing from South Shore Marina, older Scouts will leave on Monday and return to camp on Friday afternoon. They will spend their evenings camping at various islands on the lake. Under the supervision of experienced Sailing Masters, the Scouts will learn the skills of sailing; from seamanship, knots, sail handling, navigation and first aid. The program is designed to teach all levels of sailing in a fun and safe environment. We accommodate all abilities from those who are new to sailing to those who have experience. Your Scouts will continue our tradition of finding a passion and respect for Lake Murray and sailing while having fun with friends.
Offered Week 3 - Minimum of 4 Scouts, maximum of 8 Scouts.

Lake Murray/Saluda River Fishing Adventure

Fishing, fishing, and more fishing! Start out the week with learning different ways to catch fish including fly fishing, where to find and catch fish, fishing first aid, state fishing laws and regulations, catch and release practices as well as how to clean and cook fish, and so much more! Then hit the waters around camp. We will try our luck for Bream, Catfish, Striper and/or Bass on Lake Murray. We will fish from camp boats and take a guided fishing trip to the deep waters of Lake Murray. Break out the fly rod for Trout fishing by canoe on the Saluda River. We will end the week fishing and canoeing down the Saluda River. Have fun fishing in multiple waters and have the opportunity to earn both fishing and fly fishing merit badges.
Unlike the prior year’s fishing in camp, this program will travel to catch fish in different parts of the lake and on the Saluda River as part of this fun fishing program. Friday night participate in the camp cook out and the Campfire program. While catching is always more fun than fishing, we hope to have a fun week filled with both. Fish on!
Offered Week 1-4 Minimum of 8 Scouts and a maximum of 12 for this program.
