The Council High Adventure Teams of Area IV approve and develop these trail awards. These awards are provided to Cubs, Scouts, and their leaders as an incentive to develop Pack or Troop outdoor programs. A description of the awards and the requirements for earning each can be found in two publications, produced in Orange County and provided to all Councils, the Cub Adventure Awards for Cub Scouts and Webelos Scouts, and the High Adventure Awards for Boy Scouts and Venturing. Those award publications are published here in PDF format for download and reference.
