Welcome to Crew 6's Website

Venturing is based on a unique and dynamic relationship between youth, adult leaders, and organizations in their communities. Its purpose is to provide positive experiences to help young people, 14 through 20 years of age, mature and to prepare the to become responsible and caring adults. 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.

Young adults involved in Venturing will:

Learn to make ethical choices over their lifetimes by instilling the values in the Scout Oath and Scout Law.

Experience a program that is fun and full of challenge and adventure.

Become a skilled training and program resource for Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, and other groups.

Can acquire skills in the areas of high adventure, sports, arts, and/or hobbies.

Experience positive leadership from adult and youth leaders and be given opportunities to take on leadership roles.

Have a chance to learn and grow in a supportive, caring, and fun environment.

Methods
The goals of the Boy Scouts of America are to build character, develop citizenship, and foster personal fitness. The Venturing methods listed below have been carefully designed to achieve the aims of the Boy Scouts of America and meet the needs of young men and women.
Leadership

All Venturers are given opportunities to learn and apply proven leadership skills. A Venturing crew is led by elected crew officers. The Venturing Leadership Skills Course is designed for all Venturers and helps teach them in an active way to lead effectively.

Group Activities

Venturing activities are interdependent group experiences in which success is dependent on the cooperation of all. Learning by "doing" in a group setting provides opportunities for developing new skills.

Adult Association

The youth officers lead the crew. The officers and activity chairs work closely with adult Advisors and other adult leaders in a spirit of partnership. The adults serve in a "shadow" leader capacity.

High Adventure

Venturing's emphasis on high adventure helps provide team-building opportunities, new meaningful experiences, practical leadership application, and lifelong memories to young adults.

Teaching Others

All of the Venturing awards require Venturers to teach what they have learned to others. When they teach others often, Venturers are better able to retain the skill or knowledge taught, they gain confidence in their ability to speak and relate to others, and they acquire skills that can benefit them for the rest of their lives as a hobby or occupation.

What a Venturing crew does is limited only by the imagination and involvement of the adult and youth leaders and members of the crew — some of the activities Crew 6 has "VENTURED" are whitewater rafting, horseback riding, rock climbing or climbing a mountain, mini golf, biking, bowling or camping. All these adventures and many more are being done today by Venturing crews and ships across the country. All that is needed are concerned adults who are willing to share a little bit of themselves with today's youth — tomorrow's leaders.
