Boy & Girl Scout Trips



Lasting Adventures was founded by an Eagle Scout who was forever changed through his scouting experience. Lasting Adventures offers custom outdoor adventure packages at discounted rates for scout groups of eight or more.

National parks provide a dramatic landscape on our guided outdoor adventures for both Boy Scout and Girl Scout Troops. Through a 3- to 7-day custom-built adventure, youth will participate in adventure activities, fun games, and the experiential learning cycle within some of America’s most favorite National Parks. Routes vary, and our Yosemite tours usually begin in the Yosemite high country and descend to the Valley floor, covering anywhere from 25-50 miles. This includes side hikes to the summit of a major Yosemite icon such as Half Dome, Clouds Rest, El Capitan, or Mount Hoffman. Olympic routes vary depending on group size and length of trip.

Hiking four to five hours a day, scouts have time to fish alpine lakes, dunk in swimming holes, and play on natural water slides, all while learning basic backpacking skills, wilderness ethics, leadership, and LNT principles. Participants will actively engage in daily activities that are: Significant, Challenging, Supportive, and Fun!


In collaboration with your troop leadership we can design a custom program that includes the following:

  • Leave No Trace
  • Leadership Skills and Team Building
  • Group communication and problem solving skills.
  • Personal growth and development of interpersonal skills
  • Backpacking skills, backcountry ethics, and environmental awareness.
  • Merit Badges such as Backpacking, Camping, First Aid, Hiking, Orienteering, Wilderness Survival, and many others.
  • Outdoor Awards such as: Firem’n Chit, Historic Trails, Fifty-Miler, Leave No Trace, and Conservation Good Turn.


Other: On all custom scout trips, we have a daily circle time in the morning where youth engage in group games, share highlights, offer praise to each other, stretch, review maps and day itineraries, and set individual and group goals for the day. Also, whether breaking on the trail or in the afternoon or evening in the campsite, our guides also facilitate additional opportunities for youth to develop a personal connection with nature. Problem-solving and initiative games are common as are smiles. Additional outdoor skills are gained as we practice Leave no Trace principles and promote environmental stewardship throughout the length of the program.

Available: Year-round. Traditional backpacking is available May through November. Snow camping and snowshoe backpacking is available December through April. Book early for prime summer weeks. Makes for the perfect weekend or extended weekend Scout outing in the Spring and Fall.

Got most of it handled on your own? Contact us also to discuss the option of just hiring one of our Guides to join your group and direct you to some of the best kept secrets in the Yosemite backcountry.
