Venturing Court of Honor Ceremonies

As the 2005-06 National Venturing President, Amy DiFrancesco received requests for Venturing Courts of Honor.  Just as each crew focus is individual, their ceremonies are unique.  And yet, these resources might assist new crews in designing their first awards ceremonies.  Below are samples of ceremonies with different approaches.  If you have a ceremony that you would like to share, please send it to Craig Murray at TheHiker@SageVenture.com.

Other Ceremonies

Howie Barnes, Crew 313 Advisor, Seneca Waterways Council, wrote this helpful officer installation ceremony.

Ken King shared this induction ceremony posted on BSA's site but I have to say that it is not something that most Crews would do.  Certainly a Cub Pack might and maybe a Boy Scout Troop but I will share it in any case.

Youth Venturing Square Knots

A small number of Silver award knots were privately made with the knot itself stitched in silver Mylar.  It would be a great gift for anyone earning the award.  They are $5 each plus a self addressed stamped envelope.

If you want to honor someone with a very nice knot, please contact Craig Murray on his contact page or by email at TheHiker@SageVenture.com.

Venturing Silver Award Ring

Earning the Venturing Silver Award is a recognition that few earn and it can be nice to have a ring that can be worn at any time that represents the award.  Joy Jewlers makes a number of scout rings and the Venturing Silver is made in styles for both male and female.  Venturing Silver Rings
