Shift Your Camp into High Gear!
Polaris Industries Inc. has teamed up with the Boy Scouts of America to provide off-road vehicles, safety equipment and safety training to Philmont Scout Ranch, Summit Bechtel Reserve and select local camps.
The potential of this collaboration is unprecedented and will positively change the face of both Powersports and BSA. For Polaris, the intent of this program is to introduce enthusiastic Scouts to premier ATV safety training and stewardship practices with the hope that they will, in turn, become ambassadors for ATV safety and environmental respect. For the Boy Scouts of America, the intent of the ATV program is for youth recruitment and retention.
Boy Scouts of America council leadership interested in an ATV Safety Program should contact Brian Gray, BSA Program Liaison for more information.
