Can Venturers from outside Area 4 attend WorldFest?

Yes, please attend! ALL Venturers are welcome and encouraged to join us for the weekend. You will have a great time!

Our council does not have a Venturing Officers Association and/or they are not organizing a contingent – can we still attend?

Yes. Venturing Crews, Sea Scout Ships, and all Venturing age youth are encouraged to attend.

Can we bring guests younger than Venturing Age?

No. This event is designed for young adults. The target audience is high school and college age youth. Please do not bring anyone who is not age 13 and in the 8th grade or older.

Can a Boy Scout troop or venture patrol register and attend?

Boy Scouts may only attend as members, or guests of, their council VOA or a Venturing Crew or Sea Scout Ship. Please email us, and we will help you find a solution because we want you to be able to attend WorldFest

We are having trouble getting adult leaders, how can our crew still attend?

We can work with you to help overcome this problem by helping you connect with another crew, usually from your own council. Please email us ASAP

We do not have camping gear or tents, what should we do?

WorldFest is for all Venturers, not just outdoors‐based crews. Seven Ranges Scout Reservation has lots of housing in their leadership village. We expect the majority of participants will stay there. Nevertheless, the space will be allocated first come, first served, so register early. Late registers may have to tent camp. Food is served in the dining hall, so no worries about cooking or other camp chores.

Registration Deadline ‐ Our Venturers have a hard time meeting deadlines. Why so early?

In order to keep the event fee as low as possible we need to know how many are attending ‐ before ordering the materials and food (final deadline).

We have participants with special needs – can they attend?

If you have special needs please email us at WorldFest@CRVenturing.org ASAP. Seven Ranges is accessible. We will do our best to accommodate them.

This seems like a fun event to introduce people to Venturing ‐ Can we bring guests – teens that we hope to recruit into our crew?

Yes, but read on. Please only bring people who will behave in a mature, responsible, manner, and who identify with the ideals of the Scouting movement and goals of this Area Venturing WorldFest. Please remember that adult advisors are responsible for the behavior of their crew during the event and adherence to BSA and Event rules. The WorldFest event MUST be a safe place for all participants.

May Girl Scouts or Girl Scout Troops (who are not dual‐registered as Ventures/Venturing Crews) attend the WorldFest?

As their own unit, No. However, we welcome their participation, as guests of their local VOA contingent, or a local Venturing Crew. Please contact us if you need help establishing contact with a local sponsor we would love to have you attend. Your Scouts will have a great time!

Are Venturers required to wear the spruce green uniform shirt?

No, a uniform is not required!
