Venture Crew


The Venturing program aims to enable young adults to:

  • Experience a program that is fun and full of challenge and adventure.
  • Acquire skills in the area of their crew's specialty.
  • Become a skilled training and program resource for other youth groups.
  • Experience positive leadership from adult and youth leaders and be given opportunities to take on leadership roles.
  • Learn to make ethical choices throughout their lives by instilling the values of the Scout Oath and Law.
  • Have a chance to learn and grow in a supportive, caring, and fun environment.


The Venturing program emphasizes four main areas known as the A-L-P-S model:

  • Adventure - Mentoring, leading, and participating in crew-led adventures.
  • Leadership - Ongoing leadership development through training, mentoring, and hands-on leadership.
  • Personal Growth - Goal-setting in support of personal growth.
  • Service - Leading and participating in community service.
