Interested in Venturing???

Posted by jaypullen on May 2 2016 - 6:07am

Scouts:  (especially those approaching 14 and older)

Have you wondered what Venturing is all about?  Do you even know what Venturing is?  You know how there was a transition from Cub Scouts to Boy Scouts?  You were allowed to do more things.  You were allowed more freedom, and also given more responsibility?  Well, Venturing is a kind of the next step in that progression.  Venturing is totally scout run and the crew here is focused on planning high adventure activities.  They go caving, rock climbing, rappeling, they've gone sailing at sea base in the keys, biked to DC, and hiked at Philmont.  In Venturing, they take what you've learned as Boy Scouts--practical skills as well as how to plan and work together as a team and put them to use.  Also, you can belong to the crew and the troop at the same time!  As an older scout you can fulfill your responsibility to help train our next set of leaders in the troop, and at the same time go on the high adventure outings that we don't always get to go on in the troop.

I Need your Scout Photos for Slide Show by this Sat.

Hi, Simon's mom here.  I am creating a slide show for the Spaghetti Dinner and I need your photos of scouting through the years!  Please email them directly to me themortimers@verizon.net by this Saturday, April 30.  I would love photos of any and all scouting activities: camping, hiking, meetings, games, crossover, Eagle projects, even going back to cub scouts if you have them.  These will be used exclusively for a slide show that we'll project onto a screen during the spaghetti dinner.  The catch ... I need them quickly!  It would be great if you could send them to me by this weekend.  Please don't hesitate to email or phone me with questions 412-608-6652. Thanks!
