Venturing Joining Process

Venturing is easy to join.

The Viking Council service area includes the western half of the metropolitan Twin Cities, Central Minnesota and portions of Stearns and Swift counties.

  • You may join anytime.

  • Check for joining locations nearest you.

  • For contact information call Viking Council
     at 763-545-4550.

  • You will be asked to fill out a joining application when you attend a Crew Meeting.

 Program Cost 

  • Yearly National membership fee of $7.00
  • Uniform price varies depending upon one chosen by your crew to match the activities in which they participate.  The green Venturing shirt with gray backpacking style shorts is the standard uniform but the crew might design a T-shirt on polo shirt that would represent them best.
  • Activities normally have a fee.  Your crew will develop an annual plan of activities along with a budget needed to support those activities.  The crew will conduct fundraisers to help meet the budget so that all may participate.

The web site is a legacy site of the Viking Council BSA, now Northern Star Council.  
This site was the original council site and was active from 1996 to 2002 and run by volunteers.  As the web became more important to Scouting, the council took over with paid staff.  This site is no longer maintained but is an interesting snapshot of an early Scouting web site.    You can share your comments
