At the time of the award's creation in 1995, there were only three BSA high-adventure bases:

The award was first earned in 1996 by five members of Explorer Post 525, from Edgewood, Washington.

Recipients of the award receive and one round 3-inch patch with a depiction of the three high-adventure bases where they participated in a high-adventure program.

In 2014, after BSA created a fourth high-adventure base (The Summit Bechtel Family National Scout Reserve (Bechtel Summit)), youth and adults could earn the award by participating in eligible high-adventure programs at any three of the four BSA high-adventure bases. Recipients receive a round 3-inch patch that depicts an animal representing the three high-adventure bases where they participated in a high-adventure program. The symbols on the patch are a loon for Northern Tier, bull for Philmont, dolphin for Florida Sea Base, and black bear for the Summit.
