Venturing and Scout Camps

Postby wagionvigil » Sun Jul 08, 2007 9:42 am

Councils are being encouraged to provide facilities and Program for Crews at Summer Camps. Are your councils doing this? And if not why not and if so what are they offering?
I do not mean Crews that are just actually older Boy Scouts n a Troop I mean real Crews.

Woodruff in the Atlanta Area Council has a program for Venturing crews. It is actually held off campus & focuses on high adventure activities such as horseback riding, caving & river trips. It also covers some ranger requirements.

My Council has been having a Venturing week at camp. I don't know much about it yet, but yes they're trying to grow this program.

Heritage Scout Reservation in the Greater Pittsburgh Council does not have any special programs for Venturing that I am aware of,

however,

The Council is very active in promoting Venturing, and do offer a host of Venturing weekends (Ski trip, white water rafting, COPE, etc). They also promote a Venturing Superactivity (Ie., a trip through the Southwestern US).
