What is "HAT-Trained"?

A "HAT-Trained" Scouter receives a "HAT Number", which makes his unit eligible to earn special patches for high-adventure outings completed. Those awards look great on a pack-cover!

Additional basic classes include: Canoeing, Climbing Awareness, Astronomy, and Bicycling. Specialized and advanced classes include: Winter Camping, Desert Awareness and Climbing Instructor. Upon request, the HAT has provided Wilderness Survival and Base Camp and Crew Cooking.
