  • Milford’s B.S.A. Venturing Program is looking for a new group of young adults to participate in its adventure program in Milford.
    Venture Crew is for co-ed young adults ages 14 to 20 who are interested camping and outdoors activities such as canoeing, outdoor skills and crafts. The crew was established in 2007 and as its members aged out, the group is now looking to reestablish itself in the Milford community.
    “There’s a lot out there for young adults to do,” said Venture Crew Advisor Bob Blew. “They have a good learning experience.”
    Venture Crew is intended to be a supplementary program to other programs like Boy Scouts, Blew said. The main difference, though, is that it is co-ed, but still includes earning ranks and medals in categories including sports, religious life, arts and hobbies, outdoors and sea scouts.
    Venture Crew is also looking for co-ed leaders. Leaders must be at least 21 years old. Training will be provided.
    All the money that youth will need for outings, or camping trips, will be earned by fund raising. The group meets twice a month at the Milford Elks Lodge and once monthly for camping or another event.
    For more information or to become a Venture Crew member, contact Bob Blew at (302) 335-5329 or bobblewjr@yahoo.com.
