Cancelled - VenturingFest 2020

VenturingFest is a special Scouting event that is open to registered Venturers, Sea Scouts, Explorers, Venturing-Aged Scouts BSA and adult leaders. This 6-day high-adventure experience invites participants to explore the best that the Summit Bechtel Reserve has to offer. We’re talking rock climbing, skateboarding, BMX biking, water sports, shooting sports, zip lines, challenge courses, and so much more!

As if the adrenaline-pumping activities weren’t enough, festival goers will also get to jam out to concerts and meet new friends in Venturing at the event. What more could a Venturer want? It is like a miniature jamboree without the huge lines!
