Salmon River High Adventure Base [SRHAB]

    Salmon River Boy Scout Camp Water Rafting Come experience a truly lifelong memory, exciting and challenging camp experience, accept our invitation to join us at the Salmon River High Adventure Base (SRHAB). The SRHAB is located on the Salmon River near Riggins, Idaho. The SRHAB welcomes youth of Varsity and Exploring age who are ready for a challenging high adventure of river running, hiking and rappelling. The motto and guiding principal at the SRHAB is ”Striving for Personal Excellence.”

    • Trip 1 - 5 day/4 night Whitewater / hiking Adventure
    • Trip 2 - 3 day/2 night whitewater trek
    • Trip 3 - Specialized trips
    • Trip 4 - Kodiak Challenge

    This trip provides campers with a whitewater experience at the best price around, with trips beginning Monday and Wednesday. This is a three-day two-night, white water experience. See the beautiful Salmon River, from the river, beginning the day you arrive! Youth and adults alike will have the opportunity to participate in kayaking and rappelling the first evening of your trip.

    The facilities at the SRHAB are purposely a more primitive camping experience. Groups are required to participate and use “leave no trace camping” techniques.

    Potable water, showers, boating equipment and climbing equipment are available for all participants at the high adventure base. Food is provided but meal preparation and cleanup is generally done by the individual troops independent of the full time camp staff.

    Although advancement is part of the Scouting program, and we at SRHAB want to provide a great experience, advancement should not be over emphasized. A youth comes to SRHAB to have fun, and if working on advancement is part of that great! But do not feel obligated to push advancement.
