Dirt and horsepower — what’s not to love? Scouts and Venturers can learn how to safely drive an all-terrain vehicle at one of the council-level ATV programs hosted at 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.
