Outreach with Venturing Crew 502

On Saturday, we had the opportunity and pleasure to work with Venturing Crew 502 at ScoutFest 100 in Virginia Beach, Virginia. While we did general outreach, Rachel, Scott, Kaitlin, Katrina, and Mary excelled at facilitating "Camp Oh-No" with over 300 young scouts and their families. Venturing is a program of the Boy Scouts of America and the program's purpose is to provide positive experiences to help young people mature and to prepare them to become responsible and caring adults. Crew 502 did an excellent job teaching younger scouts about the importance of Leave No Trace and developing a sense of stewardship of the outdoors.

On Monday evening, we set up in the middle of Blue Ridge Mountain Sports and held an awareness workshop for 19 local outdoor enthusiasts interested in learning more about Leave No Trace.

A special thanks to Donna and Jim Shannon for hosting us!

All the best,

Agata and Jason
