Venturing Crew 1346 is an outdoor high adventure oriented group that enjoys hiking, camping, backpacking, canoeing, and sailing. We have taken many trips to BSA's high adventure bases at PhilmontNorthern TierFlorida Sea Base, and Summit. We have also backpacked the Adirondacks in New York and the Bob Marshall Wilderness in Montana, canoed the Alagash in Maine, and trekked most of the Shenandoah's in Virginia.
Crew 1346 is affiliated with Boy Scout Troop 1346 and both are chartered by Burke Presbyterian Church of Burke, VA. Most of our male Venturers are also current or former members of Troop 1346, including several Eagle Scouts!

The Crew meets quarterly for regular business and planning meetings and as required for detailed planning and preparation for its outdoor adventures.
