Boy Scouts - Venture Crew

Description:

Crew 277 is part of the BSA venturing program and is sponsored by St. Lawrence Church. In addition
to enjoying high adventure activities, this ministry also supports the community and develops
leadership skills.

Venturing is a youth development program of the Boy Scouts of America for young men and women
who are 13 and have completed the eighth grade, or age 14 through 21 years of age.

Venturing's purpose is to provide positive experiences to help young people mature and to prepare
them to become responsible and caring adults.

Venturing is based on a unique and dynamic relationship between youth, adult leaders, and
organizations in their communities. Local community organizations establish a Venturing crew by
matching their people and program resources to the interests of young people in the community. The
result is a program of exciting and meaningful activities that helps youth pursue their special interests,
grow, develop leadership skills, and become good citizens.
