Scouting – Venturing Crew Coming to Asbury

We are excited to announce the formation of a Venturing Crew at Asbury.  Venturing is a co-ed Scouting program for youth 14-20 that focuses on Adventure, Leadership, Personal Growth and Service.  Female and Male Venturing Scouts will have the opportunity to camp, participate in high adventure activities like whitewater rafting and experience personal growth through leadership development and public service. In order to make this crew a reality, we need leaders.  Specifically, we need adult females (21+) that are interested in engaging with youth in both indoor and outdoor settings. Meetings are expected to be twice a month on Tuesday nights, and we anticipate 3-4 outings a year. Please contact Edmon Jones at nejones3@hotmail.com if you are interested in being a Venturing Leader.
