It’s time to register for Blackhawk Area Council’s Venturing Blast set for Friday-Sunday, Feb. 23-25, at Camp Lowden near Oregon, IL. It is open to ages 14 and older in all Scout units as well as non-Scouts.

Planned events include fat-tire bikes, pistol shooting, climbing, archery, crate stacking, tomahawk and knife throwing, astronomy, snow shoeing and much more! Other activities include evening social/dance, night hike and evening cracker barrel! Activities are subject to change based on weather.

THERE WILL BE A DUTCH OVEN DESSERT COOKING COMPETITION! Please bring what materials you would need to make the BEST dessert Venturing has ever KNOWN! Get creative! Can you put deep fried twinkies in a dump cake? Use your imagination!

Participants will sleep in heated cabins, so there’s no need to bring a tent! Register early to sleep in Boeger Lodge—space is first come, first served!
