Denali High Adventure Scout Base
Due to the requirements needed to operate for Covid-19 protocols and the remote locale of DHASB we will not be able to operate DHASB for Summer 2021. We hope to operate in 2022.
The Denali High Adventure Scout Base (DHASB) is the newest camp property of the Great Alaska Council. This 2,000 acre camp is located at mile 133 on the Parks Highway week-long resident camping to Scouts from the Great Alaska Council and other visiting Councils. It is one of three resident camps operated by the Council.
DHASB is a world class destination for Scouts and visitors to experience Alaska’s unique, vast, and remote wilderness. We educate all campers through a variety of exhilerating year-round programs in outdoor ethics, high adventure, bear safety and environmental stewardship. Scouts will gain a greater understanding and appreciation of Scouting and its values using the outdoor and life skills they develop in the natural wonder of the Denali High Adventure Scout Base. There are three main adventures Scouts can participate in during their week at DHASB. Aquatics, Shooting Sports/Blacksmith, and Backpacking. Each scout would register for one of these specialties and spend the week gaining experience and skills to widen their experiences in the great outdoors. This is an individual registration as opposed to a unit registration. Scouts will be grouped together in crews for like activities with scouts from different units.
There are no Merit Badges offered at DHASB. Many of the activities done during their week at camp will count towards Merit Badges, they would contact a Merit Badge Counselor upon their return to complete the badge, the focus of DHASB is to experience as much as the Alaskan Outdoors has to offered.
Some of the new program activities will include:
Shooting Sports/Blacksmith Program
Build your own Longbow & Knife
Cowboy Action Shooting
Spend a week with your crew on Kesugi Ridge
Explore the Beautiful Alaska Backcountry
Build your Backpacking, & Campcraft Skills
