The purpose of the Venturing Crew is to provide experiences to young adults that will affect the positive development of youth at a critical stage in their lives and to prepare them to become responsible and caring adults.

The Venturing Crew is a youth-led organization that recruits members, elects officers, and plans programs based on the desiresof the youth. Adult Advisors provide training and guidance for the crew's elected officers. The youth members and the adult advisors are registered with the BSA.

The members of the Venturing Crew at St. Mary parish generally confine their activities to camping, specifically the highest peaks in each of the six New England states. They also work on badges and perform community service.
Membership is open to boys and girls, ages 14 to 20.
Meetings are held in the Church Hall.
