Venture Crew: High School

The St. Gabriel Venturing Crew is a youth-led program for high school students (grades 9 - 12) that offers a chance for leadership and service (including valuable “service hours”) in a social setting.  Would you like to try snow skiing or snowboarding?  Paddling a kayak?  Hiking in the mountains?  Are you looking for service hours with friends?  If you’re looking for fun, excitement and service, our High School Venturing Crew is the group for you!

Recent events have included a bowling party, bike riding on the Virginia Creeper Trail, climbing at Inner Peaks, kayaks on Lake Wylie, and a day hike and picnic at Crowders Mountain.  We do service projects such as the recent campout for homelessness awareness, park clean-up, participation in the Mt. Island Lake Sweep, and helping with babysitting during the Parish Volunteer Reception.   

New members are always welcome.
