What will I do in Venturing?
Venturing is only limited by the imagination of its
members. A Venture crew is led by the young men and women who
participate. Adult leaders are only there to assist,
mentor, and guide young leaders in their adventures.
Crew members may choose to sail the Caribbean, produce a play, climb
a mountain, teach others to scuba dive, enjoy the great outdoors, or
attend the Olympics. All these adventures are being
done today by Venture crews across the country.
Venturers plan their own advancement and progress at their own
pace. Choose from interests ranging from bouldering to biking to wilderness survival and countless other adventures, sports, arts and hobbies. Experts in these fields are ready to provide fun,
real-world experiences. Youth are rewarded for each achievement which
helps participants gain self-confidence. Setting their own goals helps Venturers grow in
How often do we meet?
Venture crews meet weekly or every other week.
Rock climbing, white water rafting, scuba diving, hiking, and other activities that crew members decide to participate
in will occur throughout the year. Many crews will participate
in one event or activity per month.
Who can join?
Young men and women, ages 13-20 and completed the eighth grade, can join Venturing.
What's the cost?
The membership fee to join a Venture crew is $33 per year and is pro-rated.
Other costs for uniforms, activities, and camp are not
included in the membership fee. Fundraising programs are available to
help keep costs low.
How does Venturing include parents and guardians?
Scouting is a volunteer-led program. Each Crew is
sponsored by a local community organization. Parents are welcome and
encouraged to participate and get involved as a volunteer leader. Parents and
the community organization select leaders. We'll work with the volunteer leaders to provide training and resources to deliver a great program.
Crew leaders have the opportunity to work with young men and women and their
families, improving the community throughout fun-filled activities that teach values of the Scout Oath and Law. By
serving as a leader you can help make a
positive difference in the kind of adults Venturers grow into.
