Swift Service Weekend

Come join us at Swift Base to help get it ready for Summer Camp.  On Saturday is when the Service projects happen.  Camping is available the entire weekend.  Sunday morning crews also have the chance for climbing on Sunday before they leave.  Tents are not provided, so the crews will need to bring their own.

Goal Setting and Time Management

PURPOSE: This course is a requirement for the Venturing Discovery Award; however, it can be taken, at any time, by Venturers whether they are working on the award or not. This course can be presented as a workshop for single or multiple crews or broken into shorter segments and presented at crew meetings or Venturing Forum/Roundtables. The small group approach used in this training can be adjusted to accommodate any number of participants.

Fall Fun Rally

September 22-24, 2017

 For more than 40 years, the Fall Fun Rally (FFR) has been the largest Venturing and Exploring event in the Greater Saint Louis Area Council. Seven years ago, the FFR was the first ever National Venturing Event, and while we won't be this year, everyone is still welcome to this great event.
