Have you heard of VentureFest? How about Jamboree at the Summit? Well, VentureFest is for all Scouts 14 Years old and older….and has all high adventure events, Just like Jamboree, but for Venturing.. This year is the 20th anniversary of Venturing…what better place to spend an anniversary! Check it out:
There is a Catalina VOA contingency attending for $1600. Details are on the following link: https://catalinacouncil.org/activities/venturefest-2018/ With that being said, Joe and I are the program leads for the shooting sports. We are looking for volunteer staff, must be 16 years old and older. If you are interested in working the shooting sports area at the Summit this summer with us, let me know ASAP. Staff will have down time to participate in the events too, not all work this time. Staff will be sleeping at staff base camps too.
Link if info: http://www.summitbsa.org/venturingfest/staff/ The fee to be staff is $250. When you register, you need to put a $50 deposit. And the entire fee is due by the end of April. The fee include prepared meals, not like at jamboree where patrols had to cook their food. Staff needs to show up earlier (July 29th for non-management) and departs on (July 6th) later in the day than participants (tentatively). The catch is staff has to fine their own transportation. Actual VentureFest date: July 1st-6th at $500-600 (youths) and $400-500 (adults), without transportation. Maybe much more if you go with a unit contingency
Hope to here from you soon.
