Tier Three: All Things Specialty Weeks

Many Point's All Things Advancement and Adventure Weeks are great opportunities for your older Scouts or Venturers who want to take their experience to the next level.

Each week-long program is structured around a specific interest area so that all advancement, activity and adventure are related to a central idea. Additionally, each program provides training to your youth that is vital for your next high adventure trip or outing.
 
We operate the programs similar to our All Star weeks, meaning Scouts and Venturers can sign up as individuals, and we will provide the staff to serve as the adult leadership. Registration opens April 1 at noon. Space for these great programs is limited, so we encourage your youth to sign up quickly.
