Who we are - The High Adventure Team is a volunteer group of Scouters which operates under the direction of GLAAC-Camping Services. Its mission is to develop and promote outdoor activities within the Council and by its many Units. It conducts training programs, sponsors High Adventure awards, publishes specialized literature such as Hike Aids and The Trail Head and promotes participation in High Adventure activities such as backpacking, peak climbing, and conservation, and in other Council programs.

Join us - Anyone who is interested in the GLAAC-HAT and its many activities is encouraged to direct an inquiry to the GLAAC-Camping Services (213-413-4400 x354). The GLAAC-HAT meets at 7:30 pm on the first Tuesday of each month at the Cushman Watt Scout Center, 2333 Scout Way, Los Angeles, CA 90026. These meetings are open to all registered adult Scouters.

e-mail lists - The High Adventure Team distributes two publications via e-mail.
