The WNYMCS Orienteering Team is an official NJROTC team activity. Orienteering is an outdoor sport that combines map-reading with cross-country travel. Participants make their way through unfamiliar terrain by using a compass and a topographical map, attempting to locate specific control locations. There are a variety of Orienteering formats, and our team competes in most of them. Orienteering is a year-round and life-long sport, and cadet team members learn the basics of wilderness survival as well as land navigation.
Venturing Crew 6289 / "NAVY"

Venturing is a youth development program of the Boy Scouts of America for young men and women who are 14 (and have completed the eighth grade) through 20 years of age.

Venturing's purpose is to provide positive experiences to help young people mature and to prepare them to become responsible and caring adults.

Venturing is based on a unique and dynamic relationship between youth, adult leaders, and organizations in their communities. Local community organizations establish a Venturing crew by matching their people and program resources to the interests of young people in the community. The result is a program of exciting and meaningful activities that helps youth pursue their special interests, grow, develop leadership skills, and become good citizens.
