About Venturing
Venturing is a co-ed program for ages 13 (completed 8th grade) to 20 year old. The whole purpose is to provide new opportunities or experiences to groups of young adults. We offer over 120 different activities, ranging from archery & rock climbing, to scuba and shooting sports. Hi-tech programs like GPS’s and ham radios are also offered. Our nearly 80 consultants will invite you to existing activities, or help you design one of your own. Our facilities are open year round- and offer great outdoor events- or plan your own. If you’re interested in trying new adventures – you’re interested in Venturing! A source of new experiences in a co-ed environment is only part of what our program has to offer. Venturing is best described as fun with a purpose. Venturing Crew members share a sense of belonging. They belong to a group of young adults with similar interests. While exploring their interests, they learn more about teamwork, leadership, respect and responsibilities. All of which are skills they will benefit from in their adult life. Venturing Crew members also have the chance to participate in a number of “High Adventure” activities. Locally, that might be caving, climbing, or scuba diving. Venturing crews and members may also choose to participate at one or all of our high adventure bases. Philmont Scout Ranch: 137,000 acres near Cimarron, New Mexico, features backpacking, hiking, a ranch-hand experience, or more. The Florida Sea Base: located in the Florida Keys, offers sailing, scuba, deep-sea fishing and tropical island camping- The Northern Tier National High Adventure Base offers wilderness canoe expeditions in the summer and great winter camping programs in the winter months.
