Venturing Oath: As a Venturer, I promise to help strengthen America, to be faithful in my religious duties, to help others, and to seek truth, fairness, and adventure in our world.
Venturing Code: As a Venturer, I believe that America’s strength lies in our trust in God and in the courage, strength, and traditions of our people. I will, therefore, be faithful in my religious duties and maintain a personal sense of honor in my own life. I will treasure my American heritage and will do all I can to preserve and enrich it. I will recognize the dignity and worth of all humanity and will use fair play and goodwill in my daily life. I will acquire the Venturing attitude that seeks the truth in all things and adventure on the frontiers of our changing world.
Our Purpose: To have FUN, while further increasing the skills of the crew. In the process of having fun, we will inspire others to follow, and help guide toward career, lifetime, and Leadership goals.
Valuables: Any valuables brought on a Venturing outing are one's OWN RESPONSIBILITY. If property turns up missing, the owner of the property should report missing items to a crew officer, who should then IMMEDIATELY turn this information over to an Advisor.
Expected Behavior of ALL crew members:
Money Earning Projects: All money earning projects must be approved by a majority vote of Crew members. Members who do not participate in a project are not entitled to any benefits of the funds earned. The adult committee and advisor must approve all money-earning projects which also must meet BSA requirements and standards.
Attendance Expectations: Crew members are encouraged to attend bi-weekly meetings. Crew members are also encouraged to participate in all Venturing events and activities and to take a leadership position in the planning of such events. Money that is paid up front to participate in an activity is usually not refundable after it has been committed.
Drug, Alcohol, and Tobacco Use Policy: Crew members shall neither use nor possess alcohol, tobacco, illicit drugs, or paraphernalia during Venturing activities. As venturers we strongly encourage each other and our friends to live a drug, alcohol, and tobacco free life, both in and out of Scouting.
Members taking either over the counter or prescription medication must inform the Advisor so he/she is aware of it’s presence at crew activities. The advisor has the right to request a doctors or parent note of use before allowing the youth to bring the medication.
Dress Code: Members should wear their Crew Class A uniform to meetings, or a class B if you do not have one yet. Shirts must be tucked in at all times. Class A uniforms must be worn at the following activities:
Youth Drivers: Under absolutely no reason should any Venturer drive any other Venturer to a Venturing related activity or outing away from the usual meeting place. Venturers are allowed to drive themselves to monthly meetings only.
