Venturing is a BSA program for boys and girls aged 14 -20 years. The Venturing program emphasizes:
• Personal growth
Venturing Crew 1577 was founded in 2004, is chartered by Trinity Presbyterian Church and operates in collaboration with Troop 1577. The Crew is youth-led and advised by trained adults, and its activities are conducted in compliance with BSA safety and adult supervision requirements. The Scout Oath and Scout Law guide the conduct of Crew members.
The Crew typically meets on a biweekly basis. Meetings focus on planning and preparation for activities. Activities planned and conducted by Crew 1577 Venturers last year included:
Indoor rock climbing
Camping and whitewater rafting
Long distance cycling
Camping and Backpacking on the Appalachian Trail, Billy Goat Trail and Signal Knob
Weekly physical training and planning meetings for the upcoming Philmont trek
Litter cleanup in a neighborhood park
Plans for the coming year include:
A 12-day backcountry backpacking trip at Philmont Scout Ranch
Shakedown backpacking trips to prepare for Philmont
And more to be scheduled!
Venturing Crew 1577 is always interested in new members who can strengthen our program. Contact Crew Advisor John Koss, at JohnJKoss@gmail.com for more information.
