Our mission is to provide the youth and young adults of the Spring community the opportunity to grow and learn, to build strong character and moral principles, to develop leadership skills and confidence, and to understand what it means to be a contributing member of the community. Service to others is a large component of the Scouting ministry and we always have FUN!

Venture Scouting is for young men and women ages 14 (or completed the eighth grade) to 21 years old. Venture Crew 1565 is relatively new, having chartered in 2003. Meetings are held at Cypress Trails UMC every other Wednesday at 7:00 PM. Venture Scouts are leaders in their units, electing officers and making decisions about all activities. Adults are on-hand to provide supervision, guidance, transportation, and to make sure of any safety precautions. Venture Scouts learn about leadership, planning, fundraising and finances, and working through conflict. Venture Crew 1565 participates in camping and outdoor activities, district and council events, and works hard to provide service to Cypress Trails UMC and the community.
