Welcome !

Welcome to BSA Venturing Crew 129's new website !

Venturing is a youth development program of the Boy Scouts of America for young men and women who are 13 and have completed the eighth grade, or age 14 through 20 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.

Venturing is based on a unique and dynamic relationship between youth, adult leaders, and organizations in their communities. Local community organizations establish a Venturing crew by matching their people and program resources to the interests of young people in the community. The result is a program of exciting and meaningful activities that helps youth pursue their special interests, grow, develop leadership skills, and become good citizens.

Venturing crews can specialize in a variety of avocation or hobby interests. Crew 129's focus is on outdoor activities and camping, to include first aid.

Sportrock is Friday night

Posted by VJKiernan on Jan 5 2020 - 3:23pm

We will have our annual Sportrock lock-in this Friday night into Saturday morning. We will be joined by about 30 Venturers from other nearby crews. It's always a lot of fun!

We need everyone in Crew 129 to turn out and help. Even if you don't want to climb and/or don't want to spend the night, we need you! We can use help in serving snacks and pizza in the evening and/or serving breakfast in the morning, and we also can use help with registration on Friday night.

Please let Mr Kiernan know when you can be there, and what you would like to do (and if you want to climb).

Movie night

Posted by VJKiernan on Dec 1 2019 - 6:37pm

As a group, we will go watch the new Star Wars movie on Saturday, December 21. The crew will pay for tickets; individuals will buy their own refreshments. Bring family and friends -- especially potential new members! Please RSVP to Mr. Kiernan by December 10 so we can get tickets before they sell out. We will determine the exact movie time based on the preferences of those who want to go.

Fellowship hour

Posted by VJKiernan on Nov 17 2019 - 10:14pm

This coming Sunday, Nov. 24, it is Crew 129's turn to host the fellowship hour after Sunday services at Westminster Presbyterian Church, our wonderful chartering organization. This is an all-hands-on-deck event for Crew 129. Please plan to be there, in uniform, by 10:45 a.m. so we can set up. We should be done by 12:45 p.m.

Air Rifles

Posted by VJKiernan on Nov 10 2019 - 9:29pm

The Council Venturing Officers Association is having a Fall Event on Saturday, Nov. 23, that includes shooting air rifles, project management training, dinner and a campfire. The event runs from 1-7 pm in Centreville. The crew can cover the cost! If you're interested, let Mr. Kiernan know by November 16.

Camp Cards

Posted by VJKiernan on Nov 10 2019 - 9:28pm

The council is again selling Camp Cards, booster cards that help them raise money. You get a variety of discounts with the card, along with a one-use $5 coupon for Safeway. Because the cards cost $5, it pays for itself through using the Safeway coupon. The council gets $2.50; your account at the crew gets the other $2.50. Any unsold cards can be returned with no penalty. If you would like any cards, let Mr. Kiernan know.

Our next activities

Posted by VJKiernan on Oct 27 2019 - 8:53pm

We will have two activities in November, both on the weekend before Thanksgiving:
--On the afternoon of Saturday, Nov. 23, the Council Venturing Officers Association will be offering air rifle shooting in Centerville
--On the morning of Sunday, Nov. 24, the crew will be hosting the coffee hour at our sponsoring organization, Westminster Presbyterian Church
More details on both to come. But mark your calendars!
