Scouting Trips

Scouting Trips


How does a trip end up on the official Trip Calendar?

It gets scouted by experienced trip hosts who are always on the hunt for awesome new outdoor activities (like jetsurfing) and destinations (like the first time we learned about the abandoned ship graveyard or this underground river) we weren't aware of before. 

Scouting a trip started as trip rating and has become a critical part of the evaluation process for every activity on the calendar.

Scouting allows trip hosts to check if an experience, a destination, guides, gear and equipment are safe, welcoming and fun.

It’s how the kinks get worked out to get you to try awesome new outdoor activities.

Although the inspiration for Scouting trips can pretty much be anything, they're generally driven by Side Missions, referrals from our guests and lots and lots of research.

Anyway, Scouting Trips can be super easy and family-friendly or extremely dangerous, but manageable. They can be extremely thrilling or super boring, where you'll drive all that way for seemingly nothing more than to cross an idea off the list. (But at least you tried). Some trips you’ll never do again; while others become annual traditions.

There's almost no telling what will happen on a Scouting Trip until you give it a try.

And the only way to sign up for a Scouting Trip is to get the Annual Pass or the Scouting Pass.

See what’s coming up!
