Boy Scouts, Rec Department launch Venturing Crew

The Daniel Boone Council of the Boy Scouts of American and the Henderson County Parks and Recreation are  partnering to create Henderson County's only Venturing Crew. Organizers will hold an open house at 7 p.m. Tuesday at the Activities and Athletics Center on South Grove Street at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, June 10.

The Venturing program is for youth aged 14-20 looking to participate in high adventure activities including climbing, cycling, scuba diving, backpacking and more. Venturers learn valuable lessons through leadership, travel, and service opportunities.

Those unable to attend the Open House may get information by emailing Lauren Lampley at or by calling the Daniel Boone Council at (828) 254-6189.
