Venturing Crew 2048 has been around for 20 years. It was first founded during Venturing’s predecessor, which was called Exploring. The Crew was only recently reorganized into the high adventure based group that it is today. Lebanon Lutheran Church in Whitehall, MI is our charter organization and we are very active in both the Montague and Whitehall communities, as well as stretching out to Shelby and North Muskegon.

We are an outdoor-based high adventure group for co-ed youth ages 13-20. Currently, the Crew actively consists of about 18 youth and 10 adults but we are always growing. We take part in all kinds of activities like backpacking, canoeing, whitewater rafting, rock climbing, sailing, and of course camping.

Venturing is significantly more than just high adventure. Crew 2048 strives to provide a positive environment for youth to learn leadership skills and be able to make ethical choices as they continue to grow.

Thanks for visiting our website. I hope you find what you were looking for here. If you have any questions about Venturing or the scouting movement in general, I encourage you to contact us.
