The weekend of September 9-11 the New Birth of Freedom Council held its first ever Venturing Training Weekend event. It was a great success! Not only did 14 Venturer’s take another step toward their awards but great and lasting friendships were formed. We even had a Venture Crew from the PA Dutch Council join us. If you missed the 2016 event don’t worry. The Venturing Training Weekend is being planned again for September 2017!
