Join Venturing - Crew 27 of Fox Island
Join Venturing - Crew 27 of Fox Island
Venture Crew 27 is now recruiting new members.
You are invited to join us for an informational meeting at the Nichols Community Center at 690 9th Ave, Fox Island. We meet the first and third Sunday of the month, at 6:30 PM.

What Is Venturing?
The Venturing program is a high-adventure, youth led, co-ed program for young men & women ages 14 - 20 years old. The focus is on Adventure, Leadership, Personal Growth and Service to the community.

The youth members define the type of program they want, based upon their personal interests, which can include hiking, camping, mountain climbing, scuba diving, whitewater rafting, horseback riding, target shooting, mountain biking, canoeing and more.

Some Crews choose to focus more on social gatherings, but it's up to them as to the program theme they want to follow. The youth members learn leadership skills through their roles in the Crew, which helps prepare them for the challenges of life, and future leadership opportunities.

About Us:
Venture Crew 27 was started 8 years ago, by two girls and the first seven Eagle Scouts from Boy Scout Troop 27. In that time, Crew members have gone whitewater rafting, snow camping, cruised on a sailboat, went cave exploring and climbed Mt. St. Helens. The time commitment depends entirely on the youth members and their interests.
