What is Venturing?

Venturing is an adventure based program for young men and young women ages 14-20. It is an exciting youth-planned, youth-run program.

Venturers develop new interests, learn new skills, go to interesting places, conquer many challenges, make new friends, learn and practice leadership, and most of all have fun.

What do Venturers do?

Venturers do a wide variety of things.

They climb rocks, SCUBA, sail, camp, dance, bowl, ski, bike, picnic, travel, etc. Just about anything you can dream of doing, Venturers do.

Each crew decides what they are going to do, when and where. The best crews are the ones where the youth members are involved and active.

How do I join a Crew?
