Scouting News

An active camper, Venkatesh has camped for more than 116 nights all over the U.S. This summer he plans to visit Florida for a scuba diving trip. With the Florida trip, he will become eligible for the Triple Crown Award for High Adventure, which comprises three strenuous adventure trips. Fewer than 1 percent of all Scouts earn the Triple Crown.

Over his years in Scouts, Venkatesh has completed more than 100 miles of biking, 100 miles of hiking, 70 miles of canoeing and 150 hours of service on 28 projects. He received the Herman Peters Award for leadership and the Scout of the Year award.

For his Eagle project, Venkatesh helped the Los Altos Village Association plant flowers and create 120 double-sided spring banners for display in downtown Los Altos.
