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.

Phenomenon and VeneturingFest Opportunities

Posted by VJKiernan on Apr 4 2018 - 10:00am

Crew 996 is planning to go to Phenomenon later this month and may go to VenturingFest at the Summit in July. They are inviting members of 129 to go along with them. If you're interested, let Mr. Kiernan know and he'll put you in contact with their adviser. Phenomenon has been great in the past, and VenturingFest sounds very good -- it uses all the facilities from the National Jamboree but with only Venturers there.
