Honoring the visionaries...
As the top volunteer Scouter and BSA National President, Wayne Perry is one of the visionaries for the Summit Bechtel Reserve.
It was his national connections and leadership that assembled the team of Scouters, philanthropists and executives instrumental in the development of SBR.
From creating the financing task force, to visiting all 80 proposed sites in 28 states, to donating to The Summit to fund W.P. Point, Perry has been a key advocate of the facility.
"This is Disneyland for kids," says Perry. "It's where young people come and are really challenged." Besides the outdoor wilderness adventure, the Summit has more than five miles of zip lines, a whitewater-rafting circuit, a 120-foot tree house, and a stadium for 85,000 people.
