Venture Crew 82 is Forming Now

Young adults from the Beatrice area seeking new challenges may find just what they are looking for with Venture Crew 82.
Venture Crew 82 is for young men or women ages 16 to 21 who enjoy socializing, camping, travel and educational opportunities and are interested in high adventure and electronic communication with other National Parks.
This program brings together the resources of the Homestead National Monument of America, Friends of Homestead National Monument, Cornhusker Council Boy Scouts of America and local area adult advisers to provide an opportunity for expanded knowledge and enjoyment of public lands and cultural areas of the nation.
The membership of Venture Crew 82 will provide their own leadership and will choose which activities they want to get involved with.
Venture Crew 82 is forming now. To register or for more information, contact Ranger Allison La Duke at Homestead National Monument of America at 402-223-3514.
