About Crew 709


Venturing is a youth development program of the Boy Scouts of America for young men and women who are 14 years of age OR 13 years of age and have completed the eighth grade and under 21 years of age. Venturing's purpose is to provide positive experiences to help young people mature and to prepare them to become responsible and caring adults.

A Venturing Crew is similar to a Boy Scout Troop, but we do not have ranks or merit badges. Instead, Venturing Crews focus on whatever suits them, such as high adventure activities, and goes and does what they want to do.

Venturing is youth led. What does that mean? We elect our own officers, plan our own meetings and activities, and do the things we want to do! Our adults act as advisors, mentoring us and helping us lead, plan events, transportation, purchasing, etc.


Crew 709 meets on the first and third Thursday of each month from 6:30PM to 8:00 PM or so.
