Venturing / Exploring Activities
VenturingFest at Summit Bechtel
- July 1-6, 2018
VenturingFest 2018, the second national gathering of Venturers at the
Summit Bechtel Reserve – a Scouting experience unlike any other before
– is coming your way again from July 1 to July 6!
WHY YOU WON’T WANT TO MISS IT
VenturingFest 2018 is a special Scouting event at Summit Bechtel
Reservation (SBR) that’s open to registered Venturers, Scouts and
adult leaders across the U.S. This six-day high-adventure festival
invites participants to explore the best the SBR 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?
