NEW – Venturing crew in Greenville!
Boy Scouts who join the crew will be encouraged and rewarded for staying active in their home troops.
Youth age 14-21, from the Greenville area. That is, anyone who can get to the meetings. This will be a co-ed crew (one young woman is signed up already).
The planned program areas are outdoor adventure, craftsmanship, service, and fellowship. This can change to meet the interests of the youth who join.
Crew members will learn leadership and mentoring skills that will help Boy Scout dual members in working with younger boys in their troops. The Crew will be a place where they can hang out with older youth, and network among the youth leadership of the local troops.
Programming will be monthly and fun — enough to keep them involved, not so much as to interfere with Troop activities. High adventure can be supported if the youth want it. Current plans include learning and practice in welding, outdoor survival skills, and a gaming interest group. Other options include high adventure activities like; rock climbing, zip lining, sailing, sail boarding, paragliding, high speed go carts, and pretty much anything you can think of and raise the funds to go do!!
Like Boy Scouts, Venturing builds character, citizenship, and fitness, through a program of youth-selected and youth-led activities.
Please let your scouts know about this, and make sure they know that non-scout family members will be welcome.
