Before leaving, I presented each member of the crew with a Ranger Guidebook. We reviewed the requirements briefly. Quite frankly, I expected to see them stuff the book in their carry-on bags, never to be seen again. I couldn’t have been more wrong. All the way across the country (Chicago to Raton by train) there was a constant barrage of questions being fired at me. Once we reached Philmont it intensified. I had the same reaction from the Philmont Ranger Staff. The Ranger Guidebooks are worn and dog eared. In my 40 years of Scouting, I can’t remember ever seeing Scouts pick up and devour a program the way they seem to go after the Ranger award.” Richard Hewitt, Crew Advisor, Portage, Michigan Venturing’s Growth Where Is It Coming From?:  Venturing’s Growth Where Is It Coming From?

Venturing can help keep youth closer to the religious organization’s beliefs. Venturing provides a package that can retain existing youth and recruit new ones. The religious awards will help create an arena in which young adults can work closely with religious leaders.

Recently they helped organize a Tiger Cub Group They have recently gone canoeing and horseback riding Rick Newton – Crew Advisor Tidewater, Florida:  Rick Newton – Crew Advisor Tidewater, Florida Crew 520 was started in May 1999 when St. Simon’s on the Sound Episcopal Church was looking for something to help them sustain a youth group. We began with five youth. Last Tuesday we sent our re-charter package in with 30 kids names on it, all with paid up dues and excited about Venturing. Two more kids showed up at our last meeting with friends, liked what they saw, and took joining paperwork home to their parents. I have youth from 5 different High Schools. We are busting at the seams. Seven of our kids just started their high school-age Pope Pius XII Religious Award. These kids like showing up in “safe” places in their green polo shirts, sitting as a crowd, and getting recognized. Our youth group has gone windsurfing, scuba diving, mountain biking and horseback riding We have great youth officers, all Seniors in High School that are now training the sophomores and juniors to take their places. Erik Moeller – St. Vincent de Paul Parish Arlington, Texas:  Erik Moeller – St. Vincent de Paul Parish Arlington, Texas May of 2000 created a Venturing crew at the Parish It works as a subset of the existing high school-age youth group We asked all the youth interested in outdoor activities if they wanted to be a part of an outdoor club Our group is 50% male/female Their favorite activity is the high and low ropes challenge courses Cascade Pacific Council Portland, Oregon:  Cascade Pacific Council Portland, Oregon June 30 - 35% growth in youth, 18% growth in units Invited Pastors from inner-city community Churches to Scout Camp for Impact Event 12 units organized from event Council created field trips and quarterly events at council camps, they use COPE course Pastors organized “Venturing for Faith” Contact: Ralph Voelker 503-226-3423 Venturing in Bible-based Churches = Great Potential:  Venturing in Bible-based Churches = Great Potential In a recent survey, 81% of Bible-based ministers said they have never seen a presentation on how Scouting can be used as a part of their youth ministry. Less than four percent of Bible-based community Churches currently have Scouting units. Frequently Asked Questions ???:  Frequently Asked Questions ??? How much ownership will my religious organization have if we start a Venturing crew with my high school age youth group? What are the advantages of combining my religious organization’s youth group with Venturing? How much does it cost to create a Venturing crew with my religious youth group? Is a uniform required? Where will we find leadership? Will Venturing compete with my youth group? How do we get started? Slide42:  Boy Scout Troops Venturing Crews Why Should a Troop Consider a Venturing Crew?:  Why Should a Troop Consider a Venturing Crew? The Venturing program complements the Boy Scout troop. It adds exciting new advancement and leadership opportunities for your older boys. It allows flexibility, so boys can participate in both programs. Venturing can help solve many of the Scoutmaster’s challenges. It meets the wants and needs of 14 to 21 year old young men. It provides a scouting program for daughters of scouting families. Scoutmaster Challenges :  Scoutmaster Challenges Keeping 14 to 18 year old Boy Scouts “engaged” in the troop. Challenging older Boy Scouts, while at the same time, trying to attract and retain younger Boy Scouts. Competing with older Boy Scouts’ interests; cars, girls, high school. Providing leadership/role model opportunities to all older Boy Scouts. Giving younger Boy Scouts something to anticipate beyond the troop Consistently offering exciting program. National BSA Statistics :  National BSA Statistics Average Boy Scout is 14 years and 1 month old Average Eagle Scout is 16 years and 2 months old Average Boy Scout attendance at summer camp is 2.8 years Ages of Venturers Year 2001:  Ages of Venturers Year 2001 Male Venturers May Continue To Work Toward Eagle:  Male Venturers May Continue To Work Toward Eagle Must be at least a First Class earned as a Boy Scout or Varsity Scout. Requirements remain the same. Board of review can be conducted by the troop or crew. If registered in both the troop and crew, can receive multiple credit for many Bronze, Gold, Silver and Ranger requirements. May use crew leadership positions and participation. What Does Venturing Offer Older Boy Scouts In Your Troop?:  What Does Venturing Offer Older Boy Scouts In Your Troop? New advancement opportunities for boys interested in progressing beyond Eagle. New, exciting awards and recognition for boys out of the advancement loop. Activities with boys and girls their own age. New leadership skills training for all members. Venturers give leadership to the troop through the Ranger program, etc. Venturing’s Teaching Philosophy Four Levels of Learning:  Venturing’s Teaching Philosophy Four Levels of Learning Level I - You read it. Level II - Someone teaches it to you. Level III - You experience it. Level IV - You teach it to someone else. We retain 85% of what we learn when we teach it to someone else. Venturing advancement requires Level IV. How Does a Troop and a Crew Work Together?:  How Does a Troop and a Crew Work Together? Scouts ages 14 to 18 and adult leaders can be members of both units; primary registration in the troop and multiple in the crew. The crew meets separately from the troop twice each month and has occasional activities with the troop and many on their own. Venturers in the troop, (especially troop leaders) are expected to participate in both units. Venturers teach and provide program. Continued...:  Continued... Recruit an Assistant Scoutmaster or committee member to serve as Crew Advisor. Utilize existing merit badge counselors as consultants for the Ranger Award. Utilize troop advancement chair to help conduct crew reviews for the Gold and Silver Awards. Venturers can wear distinctive uniforming and maintain the same unit #. Younger Boy Scouts think of the crew as extension of the troop. “My first discussions with young men of venture patrol-age in our troop yielded enthusiasm from a few. We advertised in our church and through word of mouth and got several young women attending our first open house, and then joining the crew. The coed dynamics and the viewpoint of young women who have not been in Boy Scouting, makes it very clear to me that the Venturing crew is not just Scouting for older Boy Scouts. We’re a new crew and still having growing pains with youth leadership and youth planning, but the crew is launched. The best is yet to come.” Dave Trump, Advisor, Crew 893, Centreville, VA:  “My first discussions with young men of venture patrol-age in our troop yielded enthusiasm from a few.

Recognition of their “older” status. Activities with girls. Control of their environment. Independence. To explore and experience their world. A sense of belonging and acceptance from their peer group, inclusion in a “gang.” 14 to 18 Year Old Boys Need::  14 to 18 Year Old Boys Need: Consistent adults that “Walk their talk.” Character and ethical education outside the classroom. Positive adult role models, male and female. Opportunities to become proficient at something. Leadership opportunities. Kemblesville, Pennsylvania Gary Schroeder-Scoutmaster, Troop 62 Advisor – Crew 62:  Kemblesville, Pennsylvania Gary Schroeder-Scoutmaster, Troop 62 Advisor – Crew 62 SM of troop with 75 boys Normally boys get Eagle and disappear Took 4 years to get a youth-run troop, with new Crew it happened on the first camp-out Older boys wanted more challenge, they asked SM to help them start a crew. Crew began June 2001 with 26 members, 13 girls, all Juniors in High School. How Crew has strengthened Troop 62: 1.Keeps older boys semi-active vs inactive 2.Boys are energized to do Eagle Projects 3.Boys get seal of approval from girls 4.Gives 14-15 year olds something to anticipate Michael Brown - Crew 1838:  Michael Brown - Crew 1838 “Adults need to understand what we are here for. We are here for the boys, not the other way around. The Troops exist FOR the boys, not the other way around. If the troop does not have a program that interests the older boys, why deny them the chance to go to a program that will interest them? “ “As a Scoutmaster I understood the reasons for having both the programs and that the troop could not do the same job for older boys as either Venturing or Sea Scouting.” e-mail received on 9-27-00 Ankeny, Iowa Jeff VerHelst - Advisor of Crew 869:  Ankeny, Iowa Jeff VerHelst - Advisor of Crew 869 Crew started with five Venturers in 1998 and now has 30. Most members are college students. Crew 869 was asked to operate and staff the district camporee. They created a blue activity shirt with a small Venturing logo in front and a large design on the back. They wear the recommended spruce-green shirt for formal occasions. They attended the Boundary Waters High Adventure Base in summer 2000. Greensboro, NC Wes Reid- Assistant Scoutmaster-Troop 214 Member of Church that Charters Crew:  Greensboro, NC Wes Reid- Assistant Scoutmaster-Troop 214 Member of Church that Charters Crew We noticed that older boys were losing interest. Most of our campouts catered to the new scouts, ages 11-12. Older Boy Scouts were looking for more exciting adventure. In our church chartered troop, boys 14 and above who are 1st class scouts are eligible to join the crew. They continue to work toward Eagle and pursue high adventure. We look at Scouting as part of our church ministry. Having girls in our crew allows us to provide a total ministry Alexandria, Virginia Cooper Wright- Advisor:  Alexandria, Virginia Cooper Wright- Advisor “Our crew continues to grow. We recently awarded our fourth Eagle this year, and have already presented two Bronze awards and one Gold award. I expect that we will award two more Bronzes, three more Golds, one Silver and one Ranger in January. During November, the crew participated in Scouting for Food and sorted 9,000 lbs. of food. This weekend, we will hold our Venturing Leadership Skills Course at a nearby youth hostel. We have augmented the course material with items from ‘7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens.’ I can’t wait to go back to Philmont with a co-ed crew. Right now it looks like the crew leader will be a young woman who is well on her way to earning the Venturing Silver and Girl Scout Gold awards.” Lincoln, Nebraska Marge Klein, Associate Advisor, Crew 316:  Lincoln, Nebraska Marge Klein, Associate Advisor, Crew 316 “Crew 316 started in October 1998. We have 15 boys and 6 girls. We have a list of 13 year old boys and girls wanting to join our crew when they get old enough. Our crew rule for Boy Scouts wishing to join is they must maintain registration and leadership in our troop. Twelve of our boys earned Eagle in January 2000. Since we started our crew, we explored caves with the University of Missouri caving club, went rappelling with the University of Nebraska climbing club, did whitewater rafting, snow skiing, and scuba diving. Our boys sit down with the girls when they join and teach them “basic scouting” from the Boy Scout Handbook. We have made presentations for the Ranger program to packs, troops, Girl Scout Troops, and at roundtables.” Hartford, Connecticut Michael Sobol, Advisor of Crew 57:  Hartford, Connecticut Michael Sobol, Advisor of Crew 57 “I am the Scoutmaster of Troop 57. My 18 year old son approached me about organizing a Venturing crew. Apparently he had been down to the council service center and picked up some information about Venturing. He handed me a new unit application and seven completed youth applications. I agreed to be the Advisor of a new Crew 57. My son wants to earn everything Venturing has created. He had already earned everything Boy Scouting had to offer. His girlfriend also joined the crew. My crew consists of 7 boys and one girl currently. My Venturers have been teaching the Ranger skills to the troop. It has benefited both the troop and the crew.” Girls just want to have fun…:  Girls just want to have fun… Female Venturers successfully participate in all high adventure activities (60 mile bike rides, backpacking, Mile Swim in the Pacific Ocean, and winter snowboarding. Venturers, male and female, assist the troop’s Leadership Corps in preparing and teaching the younger boys. The crew provides older scouts (who otherwise become disinterested in scouting at the age of driving and dating) with a program that retains their interest by allowing them to pursue higher adventure with female peers and friends. Co-education fosters mature, responsible and respectful relationships. C.T. Zacharczuk, Advisor- Crew 3712, Van Nuys, CA What Are Venturers Saying? :  What Are Venturers Saying? Sean Luther - 17 year old in Crew 28 and Troop 28, Pittsburgh, PA. serves as Senior Patrol Leader in Troop 28 and Crew President in Crew 28. Sean believes that the leadership skills learned in Venturing have helped him be a better Senior Patrol Leader. Venturing has also provided new experiences that he would not have experienced if he was only in the troop. Adrian Johnson - 16 year old in Crew 414, Philadelphia, PA Before joining Venturing she was thinking about joining the Air Force after high school. She has served as a leader in Venturing for the past 12 months. She believes that the leadership skills learned in Venturing and the increased confidence gained has helped her set new goals. She has now applied to the Air Force Academy. North Olmsted, Ohio Erica Sheehan, Venturer, Secretary, Crew 630:  North Olmsted, Ohio Erica Sheehan, Venturer, Secretary, Crew 630 “My crew has been in existence for about a year and I can honestly tell you it has been one of the best experiences of my life. I am the sister of a Star Scout and have been surrounded by Scouting’s morals and values for years. On our first campout in March it went down to 10 degrees. We learned from experience how to pack for winter camping. In June we went on our first ten mile canoe trip, we had a blast. In all our outdoor activities I have learned how important it is to work together and that if there is one person not working to their ability the rest of the crew can’t function to it’s potential. The COPE experience was THE bonding experience of my life and I was on a natural high for days. We’re all now motivated to work as hard as possible in everything we do, in Venturing, at home or in school.” Fullerton, California Amanda Delaney and Christina Canino, Crew 214:  Fullerton, California Amanda Delaney and Christina Canino, Crew 214 Crew 214 was organized in June of 1998, it has 15 boys and 15 girls, chartered to a Presbyterian Church in Fullerton, California. Activities include backpacking, rock climbing, snowboarding, skiing, and COPE. Our members adopted the spruce green shirt as our formal uniform. We designated a navy blue t-shirt with our own logo as an activity uniform. “We’re all like brothers and sisters, we trust each other.” “We set our own rules; no boy/girl buddy system, go in threes in mixed company.” “Venturing is more than we expected.” “The guys have seen me on campouts without my makeup on and they still like me.” Frequently Asked Questions:  Can a Venturer earn Eagle? Does a Venturer who is working on Eagle have to be multiply registered? Why is silver higher than gold? What is Venturing’s official uniform? Where can I get a shirt like that? Where do I find advancement requirements? What is the difference between Venture and Venturing? How do we get Venturing started in my area? Can a Venturer get past credit and multiple credit? How do I get a copy of this presentation?
