Join us as we celebrate Venturing's 25th Anniversary and the achievements of our Sea Scouts & Venturers around the council. This year's event is mixing things up as we "Celebrate Like It's 1998!".

You are encouraged to bring family, friends, and prospective Venturers & Sea Scouts to this event. Uniforms are acceptable (especially for award recipients), and we highly encourage 1990's outfits. In fact, we will have flowers for girls' hair, and ties for the guys during the social hour.

If you have an award recipient that you haven't submitted yet, please get that information to asap. That way we have time to add them to the script. Check below if your unit should be providing the award for the actual presentation.

We will recognize the recipients this year of:

Venturing Discovery and Pathfinder (Unit Provided)

  • Sea Scout Ordinary and Apprentice (Unit Provided)
  • Sea Scout Quartermaster (Let us know if you already have the award, or your unit has free rank advancement)
  • Venturing Summit (Let us know if you already have the award, or your unit has free rank advancement)
  • Venturing Leadership Award (Council Provided)
  • Sea Scout Leadership Award (Council Provided)
  • VSOA Outstanding Service Award (Council Provided)

But wait...there's more...

During the social hour as we rock out to 90's tunes, we will have food truck and 90's inspired food such as pigs-in-a-blanket, street-tacos, nachos, popcorn, and pretzels. We are also looking for someone that can bring some 90's video games and board games. If you have something you can bring, let us know at

And lastly...It's Competition Time

We ask each unit to design and bring a centerpiece that reflects their unit. If you are bringing more than 8 people, then multiple centerpieces are encouraged for entry into the competition. The winning table will receive a $25 Amazon Gift Card.
