Boy Scout programs available throughout area

Venturing provides a high level of opportunities for achievement, learning and outdoor activities. The Ticonderoga group tries to plan one big, multiple-day trek each year. In 2008 local Venture Scouts went to Colorado and to the Philmont Scout Ranch in New Mexico for two weeks.

Other treks have included a co-ed, eight-day canoe trip to LaVerendrye Wildlife Preserve in Canada and a canoe trip to Algonquin Provincial Park in Canada.

The group regularly goes camping, hiking and climbing.

As a Venturer, youth can also follow an advancement program to earn their Bronze, Gold and Silver Awards. Earning the Silver Award in Venturing is much like earning an Eagle Scout Award in Boy Scouting.

Venture Crew 72 of Ticonderoga is co-ed.
