Are you having trouble earning the Venturing, Discover, Pathfinder, or Summit Awards because you are having trouble finding the required training for advancement?  Then join the VOA on the weekend of May 19th-21st and we will help you get those more difficult to find courses out of the way.  On Saturday evening, we will hike over to join other scouts from Cradle of Liberty and Canada for a fireworks display as part of their SCOPE/Olympia event.

We will be covering

  • Goal Setting and Time Management (P36), required for the Discovery Award;
  • Project Management (P37), required for the Pathfinder award; and
  • Mentoring (P38), required for the Summit Award. 

If time permits we will also cover

  • Ethical Controversies Discussion, required for Pathfinder;
  • Crew Officers Seminar (P31), required for officers; and
  • Personal Safety Awareness, required for Venturing.

We will not be covering First Aid and CPR, required for Discovery, as this course is easy enough to find. We will also not be covering Introduction to Leadership Skills for Crews (ILSC), as the VOA offers this course separately each December.

We ask that all participants take the Venturing Crew Officers Orientation course which can be found online at http://www.scouting.org/training/youth/venturingorientation.aspx and is a requirement for the Discovery Award.

The cost of $20 per participant will include Friday cracker barrel, Saturday breakfast, Saturday Lunch, Saturday Dinner, Saturday Cracker Barrel, Sunday Breakfast, and snacks.

We ask that all participants:


If you have one or more of the above trainings and would like to be part of the staff, please reach out to the VOA President Avery Sytsma or the VOA Advisors BEFORE REGISTERING. If you do not have her contact information you may reach her through the VOA Advisors in the contact information below.
