Really Awesome Venturing Experience

is the scouting event of the year for Area 1!


Venturers and Venturing aged youth will have the opportunity to explore everything at Camp Pigott in Chief Seattle Council has to offer. Youth can test out the edges of their comfort zone at the climbing wall with trained belayers or with a group of friends on the COPE course. If a youth or adult is interested in working on personal development or checking off requirements for the Pathfinder award, they can attend the Mentoring training led by members of the Area 1 VOA.

If a youth is interested in working on their marksmanship they can check out Pigott’s fabulous shooting range. Unlimited shooting add-on is $15 dollars. Venturers can register as a group with adults or as individuals. We’ll celebrate a successful weekend with the snazziest Venturing dance Area 1 has ever seen. Don’t forget your dancing kicks!

No great event is complete without delicious food, your weekend meals are included with the $45 registration fee.

See Flyer (link above) for more info and visit ScoutRAVE.org – $45 + $15 for unlimited shooting/person –
