The Venture Patrol is a “virtual” patrol within the troop. To be a member you must be 13 years old and at least a 1st Class Scout, and daring enough. The purpose of this Venture Patrol is to keep older scouts active in the Boy Scout program. Scouts will still be part of the Troop and will be in their respective patrols.
We will plan 2-3 trips a year outside of the Troop outings (not to conflict) that are high adventure based. Some places and ideas we have done and plan to do:
- Extended more challenging backpacking trips
- Whitewater rafting
- Pamlico Sea Base adventures
- Horseback riding trips
- Rock climbing and repelling on real rock faces
- Mountain Biking
If you are interested in any of these activities, please contact the Venture Patrol PL.
