The Ultimate Socially Distant Summer Camp Experience! Wilderness backpacking, canoeing, and adventure-

In one of the most invigorating, challenging, and memorable experiences that Ten Mile River has to offer, the High Adventure Trek has no equal. TMR has built one of the best trek and 50 Miler programs available. So much more than just a hiking and camping trip; Scouts can participate in intense outpost programs, trying out new activities not available in the TMR basecamps.

With a great sense of history and tradition, today we have a program that is specifically designed for the older youth who has “done it all.” Those who are willing to accept the challenge will have the opportunity to experience TMR and Scouting in a very different way. They will be able to backpack along the historical and beautiful Red Dot Trail, canoe on the Delaware River, rappel from the Indian Cliffs, learn and use many skills in orienteering and the outdoors, participate in a C.O.P.E. course and much more. Participants will see and visit parts of the reservation that few know about, and at the end will be able to challenge themselves as individuals and as a group in completing the various stages of the Trek.

Two leaders are required for each Trek and free leaders are tabulated according to the Free Leader table.  We look forward to meeting you on the trail at Ten Mile River Scout Camps this summer!


Trek Highlights

50 Miler Award

A great objective for the participants of any Trek is to earn the 50 Miler Award. At the conclusion of your trek, participants will be eligible to earn this award.

Historic Trails Award

The 12,000-acre Ten Mile River Scout Camps has over 60 miles of hiking trails, including the famous 33-mile Ten Mile River Trail.  The Ten Mile River Scout Museum sponsors the Ten Mile River Historical Trails Award for registered Troops, Packs, Venture Crews and qualified non-scouting groups hiking these trails.  Hikers satisfying trail requirements can earn a beautiful patch and medal with pins for miles hiked. Read more from the TMR Museum


Over the course of the trek, participants will learn about backpacking, wilderness survival, climbing, rappelling, and orienteering skills and may be able to complete or earn partials in these merit badges. The program and advancement will also work well for Venturing units.


To sign up for the trek, your unit or crew must have two adult leaders and 5-12 trekkers depending upon the type of trek. Participants must be 13 years old by camp, and Boy Scouts must be First Class Rank.

Your Trek Schedule and Reservations

Reservations for treks must be made 60 days in advance of the trek start. The day-to-day schedule of the trek is agreed upon between leaders of the trek and TMR Trek staff. Trek leaders should contact Camping Services at least two months before coming to camp to arrange the details of their trek. The Trek Director will help you in planning your trek program.

Provisional Trek

For those units without leaders able to bring their group to a trek, during weeks 2 and 3, TMR will build provisional Trek units and will provide them with the necessary leadership. For the provisional treks, unit leaders must make the necessary arrangements well in advance through Camping Services.
