The Adventure Plan (TAP)

The Adventure Plan (TAP) is a tool to guide unit leaders—Cubs, Scouts and Venturers/SeaScouts— through all stages of Adventure planning.

Outdoor adventure is a key element of youth development in the Boy Scouts of America programs. Just as young people grow, learn and mature in a continuing progression of experience so, too, do the camping and outdoor programs of the BSA. The BSA offers a continuum of experiences based on the age, interest and ability level of youth, and also offers recognition awards for all levels of Scouting outdoor Adventures.
