Venturing is an inclusive program through the Boy Scouts of America for youth aged 14-21 (or 13 and completed the 8th grade). It’s operated through Venturing Crews, units of youth and advisors that meet on set schedules and plan activities and events for youth like you!
Midwest Islamic Scouting Council (MISC) offers a collaborative Scouting Program full of fun and learning in an Islamic environment for all of the communities we serve.
In crew meetings, Venturers make new friends, play purposeful games, and learn new things. Crews usually meet once a week for crew meetings and once a month for a monthly outing.
Crew members have opportunities to go camping and to participate in outdoor adventures. Lessons learned in the out-of- doors help to develop a life-long respect for the environment.
The Crews are chartered through Midwest Islamic Scouting Council (MISC).
To make Venturing work it takes a team made up of the crew committee, which is a group of adults, led by the crew committee chair, who guide the crew program and activities and manage record keeping, finance, leadership recruitment, and registration.
The crew must have at least five adults registered with the crew to become a legitimate crew.
The crew is led by youths who are elected to the positions of president, one or more vice-presidents, secretary, treasurer, quartermaster, guide, and historian. Other positions in the Venturing crew may exist, such as activity chair. The adult adviser and associate advisers provide guidance while allowing the youth to lead the crew.
