About Venturing

A Venture Crew is being organized on Fox Island this fall, and we are looking for Gig Harbor area High School aged boys and girls (14 - 21) who are looking for rugged high adventure or challenging sporting activities, in a follow-on program after Boy Scouts or Girl Scouts, that is more age-appropriate for older teens.

Venturing is a year-round program for young men and women who are 13 (and have completed the eighth grade) through 20 years of age to provide positive experiences through exciting and meaningful youth-run activities that help them pursue their special interests, grow by teaching others, and develop leadership skills.

Venturing is a coed program is designed for young adults who are looking for rugged high adventure or challenging sporting activities and still want to be a part of a Scouting program that offers the advancement opportunities and values of the Boy Scouts of America.
