Who Can Join and When? Venturing is a “co-ed” (yes, young ladies too!), high school aged youth group that is part of “Scouting USA” – previously BSA – for over 20 years! Any youth age 14, or 13 and has finished 8th grade, can join. Of course, we rely on support from parents and adult advisors as well. Registration is open year round.
Do Adults Have to go Camping? No one “has” to do anything they are not comfortable with! Although we need male and female adults for our trip as part of our safety guidelines, there are plenty of other areas Crew 140 could use help other than camping.
Can Boy Scouts Continue toward Eagle Rank? Absolutely! We offer standard Scout rank advancement and Venturing advancement – all optional of course. We have celebrated over 12 Eagle scouts over the past few year.
Experience or Background in Scouting Needed? NO! Over half of our youth don’t have a background in Scouting or the adults. We do traditional camping but also focus more on leadership and provide all training for free!
Can a Boy Scout be in BOTH a Troop and a Crew? Yes, of course. As the ages can overlap, this is common. A Scout gets to enjoy each unit and only pays registration dues once.
