Next summer, from July 1-6, the Summit Bechtel Reserve will be hosting Venturing’s 20th Birthday Bash- VenturingFest 2018!

For 6 days, experience all that the Summit has to offer: swimming, whitewater rafting, rock climbing, mountain and BMX biking, shooting sports, zip lines, and so much more! This Jamboree-style event will feature a full range of activities without the lines that you would expect to see at the National Jamboree.

Through concerts, games, forums, and training you will be able to meet Scouts and Venturers from around the US and the world. With so much to do and see, how could you not want to be at VenturingFest?

Attendance at VenturingFest is open to all registered members of the BSA over the age of 14 (or 13 and have completed the 8th grade): Sea Scouts, Venturers, Boy Scouts, Varsity Scouts, and adult Scouters are all welcome to participate in the excitement of the Summit.

Registration is open now, and you can learn more information at

Consider this your personal invitation to a week of adventure, new experiences, new friends, and the beauty of West Virginia.
