Program Update- Summit Workbook is OUT!
The Summit Workbook has officially come out! It looks very similar to the Eagle Scout Project Workbook but it has been tailored to the Venturing program. You can see the workbook here.
There will be an online training for advancement chairs to explain the difference between the Eagle Scout Workbook and Summit Workbook, so be on the lookout for it! We will post it here when it comes out! There will also be a guide to doing the Board of Review for the Summit Award online soon as well!
Also one of the biggest difference between the Eagle Scout Workbook and Summit Workbook is that most of the approval is at the crew level and the final signature is from a youth member of the crew as designated by the Crew President. Keep this in mind as Venture's work towards getting their Summit awards!
Baltimore Area Council is always running training oppurtunities for venturing youth and adults throughout the year, such as; Trainers Edge, National Youth Leadership Training(NYLT), Eagle's Nest, Powderhorn, Intro to Leadership Skills for Crews(ILSC).
