Venture Crew 10
Venturing is a program of the Boy Scouts of America for young men and women, age 14 through 20. Venturers develop organizational skills and leadership while planning and carrying out fun activities. Crews often focus on a particular theme and Crew 10 has selected outdoor adventure and service as primary interests.
Crew 10 celebrated our eighth birthday on June 24, 2019. During the course of the year, we remained relatively stable at about 12 youth. The Crew President is currently Aiko Austin.
Crew activities in 2019 included an overnight canoe trip on the Suwannee River, enjoying a local Venturing Super Weekend plus two out-of-council Venturing weekends, nearly escaping a breakout room, serving on National Youth Leadership Training staff, enjoying a bonfire at the church, a day at Wakulla Springs, team-building activities, Scout Sunday at the church, planning meetings, a holiday party, and service projects. The service projects totalled 835 hours and included collecting food for the Scouting For Food drive, Coastal Cleanup, Cub Scout Day Camp, Scout Day at the Capital, Kidsfest (Kids Inc.), Tiger Prowl for first-year Cub Scouts, Cub Family Weekend, Webelos Woods for older Cub Scouts, 2nd Harvest (Crawfordville), Farm Share (Crawfordville), Soul Santa, Winter Camp, and a few projects at the church.
The crew earned the top “Gold Level” in Scouting’s “Journey to Excellence” unit evaluation for 2019, for the 9th year in a row.
For 2020, the crew plans to hike, camp, canoe, attend Venturing Super Weekends, staff/attend National Youth Leadership Training, assist with the Olustee Civil War Battle Reenactment, and enjoy serving others.
