Venturing More Info

When you hear the words Venture Crew, what do you think of? A Scoutmaster may think of an extension of the Boy Scout Program but with a co-ed twist. A Boy Scout may think of it as a program simply designed for high adventure without any realistic room for advancement or training. A Unit Commissioner may think of a specific Venturing Crew that started and folded. A District Chairman may think of a program designed for ROTC groups to use. Whatever your thought or experience, Venturing is a valid and useful program which the Council Venturing Committee is determined to see grow and bloom into an invaluable part of Scouting in the upstate.
 

Venturing is a youth development program of the Boy Scouts of America for young men and women who are 14 (and have completed the eighth grade) through 20 years of age. Venturing's purpose is to provide positive experiences to help young people mature and to prepare them to become responsible and caring adults.

Blue Ridge Council Venturing Committee

It is the goal of the Venturing Committee to provide proper training, exciting activities, and helpful information to all Districts and existing Venture Crews. There will be a Venturing article to keep all of our volunteer leaders and parents up to date, as well as, special e-mail blasts sharing specifically important information throughout the year.

 
It is the desire of the Venturing Committee that at least one adult and one youth representative from each Venture Crew would attend the monthly committee meeting which are scheduled for 7:00pm on the fourth Monday of each month at the Council Service Center in Greenville. If you would like to be on the Venturing Committee's email list please email Dwayne Skinner at dskinner@bsamail.org
