Wondering what to get Venturing for its 20th birthday next year?
Here’s the best gift of all: A personal story about how Venturing impacted your life.
Venturing turns 20 in 2018, and to celebrate, the BSA’s program for older youth is asking for Venturing stories and photos from current and past members.
They call it 20 Stories to Celebrate 20 Years.
Venturers, advisors and Venturing alumni are asked to share some words and/or images on the ways Venturing has impacted them.
The 20 best stories — 10 from youth and 10 from adults — will be featured during 2018’s yearlong celebration. Winning submitters will receive a VIP experience at VenturingFest 2018.
Speaking of VenturingFest 2018, now’s the time to sign up for this national gathering of Venturers at the Summit Bechtel Reserve in West Virginia.
VenturingFest is July 1 to 6, and it’s when thousands of Greenshirts will gather for fun and friendship.
During the day, Venturers will try high-adventure activities like rock climbing, skateboarding and zip lining. At night, Venturers can snack on some great food while jamming out at concerts with thousands of their new best friends.
