Adventure is Calling!

Venturing provides young men and women ages 14 to 20 years old with positive experiences to help them mature and develop into responsible and caring adults.  Venturing is based on a unique and dynamic relationship between youth, adult leaders and mentors, and community organizations.  The result is a program of exciting meaningful activities that helps youth pursue their special interests, grow, develop leadership skills and become active citizens.  Venturing crews focus on a variety of career or hobby-related activities.

New Venturing participants 18 years of age, but not yet 21 years of age, must complete an adult application and criminal background check disclosure/authorization form.

Venturing Fest 2020

It's official, Venturing Fest is back! This Venturing event is one-of-a-kind, bringing Ventures from across the country to the Summit Bechtel Reserve. Last year Venturing Fest had over 1800 youth and adults from across the U.S. converge at the Summit for a memorable experience. Venturing Fest 2020 will be taking place from June 28 to July 3.

Why should your Venturing Crew go?

Venturing Fest offers many opportunities to lead your own adventure. From the adrenaline-rich Big Zip to exciting evening concerts there is so much for Venturers to do. With all of the activities, the Summit offers it is worth making the trek to West Virginia.

Don't just take our opinion, here is what Gabe Lane had to say about Venturing Fest 2018:

“I enjoyed hiking through the beautiful mountains of West Virginia, the zip line was a blast I would highly recommend it”.

-Gabe Lane, Crew 2292 Caledonia, Michigan
