Why Venturing?

Venturing is based on a unique and dynamic relationship between youth, adult leaders, and organizations in their communities. Local community organizations establish a Venturing Crew by matching their people and program resources to the interests of young people in the community. The result is a program of exciting and meaningful activities that helps youth pursue their special interests, grow, develop leadership skills, and become good citizens.

Venturing Crews can participate in a variety of vocational skills, hobby interests, or may choose to specialize in one specific activity.

What do Venturers Do?

Venturing Crews enjoy a wide variety of outings, activities, and adventures thanks to the amazing natural resources in our area. Venturing Crews are known to spend weekends: rock climbing, white water rafting, sailing, hiking, caving, zip-lining, scuba diving, and much, much more.
