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.

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.
