Community service

In addition to outdoor and indoor adventure activities, Crestview’s Venture Crew in the past decided to do community service projects.

“Service was important to them, so they were active in Relay for Life, the Walk for Autism, and worked at Cub Scout Day Camp,” Schwartz said. “Crew members graduated with many more service hours than required for any scholarship.”

Though the teens decide the crew’s direction and activities, Schwartz assures parents that responsible adults are always present as advisers.

“As in all other BSA (Boy Scouts of America) programs, adults are background checked, and must complete youth protection training before working with a crew,” she said.

“In addition to the basic youth protection training, there is also specialized Venture Crew youth protection training, specifically directing the issues of teen development and coed crews.”
