What is Venturing?
Venturing is a youth program under Scouts BSA (aka "Boy Scouts") that includes a wide variety of adventure activities, service projects, personal development, and working as a group.
Who can join?
Youth ages 14-20
When/where do you meet?
Thursdays from 7:00-8:30 pm at Trinity Lutheran Church (525 Carthage Street) and other times (some weekends) for special events.
What if I don’t know how to camp or hike?
That’s what we’re here for! Part of the adventure is trying new activities with friendly encouragement.
How much does it cost?
It costs $146.00 to join the group. There’s also a $25 joining fee if you’re new to Scouting. Venturers pay for their activities out of pocket or through crew fundraisers, such as selling discount cards. The crew is mindful of expenses and decides as a group how to budget activities.
What about the uniform?
Crew members wear an official Scout shirt with four required patches plus their own grey pants or shorts. Close-toed shoes are required for many outdoor activities.
