Aquabase Extreme
A high adventure live-aboard sailing program


Imagine spending your Summer Camp experience on one of the largest man-made lakes in the world spending a week on a beautiful 25 foot sailboat with your Scout friends experiencing teamwork and learning nautical skills.  Earn your Weather merit badge by learning the weather patterns that affect sailing expeditions!  Enjoy an afternoon of fishing at an offsite location on Kentucky Lake!

This great program is designed for scouts ages 14 and older. Crews of 3 – 4 Sailors will manage their very own boat for the entire week under the leadership of the Director. They will sail to numerous ports throughout the lake and spend each night on the boat. Scouts will enjoy cooking their own meals but will also experience some local “Ports of Call.”
