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.

Hi everyone -
The wreath orders arrived today at the church. Pickup will be in Fellowship Hall at the church from 7:30-8:00pm. Everyone needs to pick up during this window or make arrangements for someone else to pick them up for you. We know people may be traveling but we can not store them for you. Ask a friend or a fellow scout to help you out.
