About Us

Venturing Crew 5.14 from Hawk Mountain Council, Boy Scouts of America is sponsored by the Birdsboro Area Climbers Association and meets at the Reading Rocks Climbing Gym on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday each month from 7:00pm to 9:00pm.  Each meeting's program varies depending on the program planned by our youth leadership and will frequently include learning and working on climbing skills, outdoor activities, preparing for campouts, working on advancement or other projects.

Venturing is an adventure based on challenge, leadership training and experience. At Crew 5.14, we hold as many of our activities outdoors. We plan to conduct monthly campouts, in addition to our annual Super Activity and other high adventure activities.

Every adult leader in the Crew is a volunteer. Many have several years of Scouting and and many more years of climbing experience. However, our program is not about adults telling youth what they should or should not do. It is all about Venturers (youth) planning and executing their own program. The Crew youth officers are responsible for leading Crew 5.14 in all its activities. They do a great job.

Our program helps Venturers learn the skills and traits they need to succeed in life. We encourage all parents to become involved in the Crew, as this has proven to be the best way for a Venturer to succeed.

We offer youth the opportunity to become leaders, to challenge themselves in an outdoor setting, and to be a part of a group that believes in Venture Oath and Code.

Take a look at some information about our crew.

About Us

The Venturing Oath

As a Venturer, I promise to do my duty to God and help strengthen America, to help others, and to seek truth, fairness, and adventure in our world.

The Venturing Code

As a Venturer, I believe that America's strength lies in our trust in God and in the courage, strength, and traditions of our people.

I will, therefore, be faithful in my religious duties and will maintain a personal sense of honor in my own life.

I will treasure my American heritage and will do all I can to preserve and enrich it.

I will recognize the dignity and worth of all humanity and will use fair play and goodwill in my daily life.

I will acquire the Venturing attitude that seeks truth in all things and adventure on the frontiers of our changing world.
