Venture Crew One ... Co-ed Scout Program
Venture Crew One is a Scouting program sponsored by Tarrytown United Methodist Church in Austin, Texas. The Venturing Program is an official Boy Scout of America youth development program. The Venture Crew One program is composed of three separate Crews made-up of Scouts and their friends that are high school sophomores, juniors and seniors - both young women and men (each graduating class has a separate and distinct crew - the '04 Crew, the '05 Crew, the '06 Crew, etc.). The program is chartered by the Capitol Area Council. Each Crew is supervised by two-deep, adult leadership. Eight Eagle Scouts started Venture Crew One and the '98 Crew in October 1995. Currently, 70+ youth are registered members.
It is the mission of the Boy Scouts of America to serve others by helping to instill values in young people and, in other ways, to prepare them to make ethical choices over their lifetime in achieving their full potential. The Venture Crew program of Venture Crew One adheres to this mission and is designed for older Scouts and their friends to develop leadership, learn primitive camping skills, experience high adventure backpacking and other outdoor activities, and provide service to the community. Venture Crew members work as a team to achieve specific goals that the youth leadership of the Crew are responsible for planning and carrying out.
