Venturing Shoot n' Splash n' Geocache

Shoot N’ Splash N’ Geocache Day is a purely fun activity in the spring that helps introduce a lot of different outdoor activities to Scouts in Venturing (and those who want to be)!

The program runs from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm at our Lost Pines Scout Reservation near Bastrop. Your Venturing Crew can camp overnight on Friday and Saturday; you just need to let us know when you fill out the registration form.

The cost is $10 per Venturer; there is no charge for adult leaders.

To sign up, click the registration link on this page and fill out the survey form. Then, bring $10 per Scout (cash or check only; checks made out to BSA CAC) to the event. You’ll turn in payment, medical forms, and releases when you check-in.

If you have any questions, please contact Steve Yeatman at [email protected] or Curtis Heldstab at [email protected].
