Venturing Summit

Friday, August 8, 2014 All Day - Sunday, August 10, 2014
Bovay Scout Ranch

The Venturing Summit is the end-of-the-summer activity for all Venturers, Sea Scouts and your friends who are thinking about joining the program.  Make it a full weekend, just a day, or a night and a day activity.  Camp if you want, or just enjoy a long summer day.  The Venturing Summit is being held at Camp Strake and offers a chance to relax, do as much, or as little as you want, visit with old friends and make new friends, enjoy meals prepared for you, and of course, engage in a lot of fun activities.
There will be a full slate of aquatic activities – small boat sailing and rowing, slip & slide, and more.  Just outside the open-air dining hall will be field sports like kick-ball and volleyball and Guitar Hero Challenge!   Geocaching is bigger and better this year with even more candy and additional challenges.  Game on!  And remember, we kick-off Friday night with a movie at the Grand Lake Dining Hall. 

If you are interested in a leadership position in the Venturing Officers Association, then the Summit is the place for campaigning..  Elections will be held on Saturday for the offices of Council Venturing President, Vice-President of Program, and Vice-President of Administration.  We will follow the procedures outlined in the VOA By-Laws.  Be sure you bring your VOA nomination form (signed by your Crew / Ship Advisor).  Saturday evening is a very special time.  There is the annual awards banquet where your peers and leadership will be presented with recognition for their work in the Venturing and Sea Scout programs.  At the banquet the new Venturing Officer’s Association leadership will be announced.
