Venturing Crew 120, a high-adventure program affiliated with the Boy Scouts of America, will be hosting a membership drive field day on April 20 from noon to 4 p.m. in the Anderson County community park.


Field day activities will include fishing (casting accuracy competition), kayaking, air rifle, archery, tent pitching, marshmallow golf, ropes navigation course, basketball shoot, street hockey shoot, football and baseball throws, soccer kick, bicycle obstacle course, ambulance and first aid training and a firefighter hose exercise. 

The field day is open to all community youth.

“The fair-type event will include many activities designed to engage the youth of our community,” event organizers said in a press release.  “They are hoping to reach some of the ‘at-risk’ youths in our community and give them a chance to grow into productive teens and adults. This program is designed to help them make the right decisions in life and give them the skills they need to have a successful future.”

Venturing Crew 120 is part of the Boy Scouts of America and is open to young women and men 13 years old who have completed the eighth grade, or students ages 14-20.

“Venturing’s purpose is to provide positive experiences to help young people mature and to prepare them to become responsible and caring adults,” event organizers said.

Sponsorship and donations for each activity station are welcome, according to the press release.
