The leadership of the Pine Tree District of Central Minnesota Council announces the formation of a new unit in Brainerd.

"We are forming a Venture Crew for both boys and girls between the ages of 14 and 21," said Paul Edwards, who will serve as the Venture Crew advisor.

Venturing is a youth development program of the Boy Scouts of America for young men and women who are 14 years of age - or 13 years of age and have completed the eighth grade - and under 21 years of age. Venturing's purpose is to provide positive experiences to help young people mature and to prepare them to become responsible and caring adults.

An informational meeting will be at 7 p.m. Thursday at the Brainerd American Legion Post. Any interested youth can attend to find out what the crew will be doing.

According to the Boy Scouts of America, what a Venturing crew does is limited only by the imagination and involvement of the adult and youth leaders and members of the crew - sail the Caribbean, produce a play, climb a mountain, teach disabled people to swim, or attend the Olympics. All these adventures and many more are being done today by Venturing crews across the country. All that is needed are concerned adults who are willing to share a little bit of themselves with today's youth to become tomorrow's leaders.
