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.

CPR and Wilderness First Aid

Posted by etanthony on Oct 13 2017 - 8:55pm

Venturing Crew 80 will be offering CPR classes in October and November and a Wilderness First Aid class in December. Anyone can benefit from this training, but those going to Northern Tier should particularly consider it. The fee is much less than the fee charged by other groups and companies that offer the same training. You can sign up using the attached form.
