Are your Scouts apprehensive when it comes to driving a personal watercraft? Replace water with dirt and you get all-terrain vehicles. In addition to personal watercrafts the BSA has approved council-level ATV programs among qualifying camps. (The programs are not approved for unit use.)
Similar to the personal watercraft programs, the aim of the ATV activities is safety, and teaching Scouts basic operation of the vehicle while respecting the environment.
Scouts or Venturers must be age 14 or older to drive an ATV, and the program requires youth to wear long pants, long-sleeve shirts, and over-the-ankle boots.
To locate an ATV program near you, see below.
The following list includes councils offering the All-Terrain Vehicle program in 2012. To find a BSA council near you, click here.
