    Find a BSA Venture Crew in your area. They're co-ed and are for youths 14-21. Each crew specializes in one or more activities. In my area we have a variety of crews including Sea Scouts (sailing/power boating), high adventure (camping/hiking/climbing/canoeing), Explorer Posts (crews train and ride with police, fire, EMS), and there is even a crew at the local university that specializes in archaeologicall digs and spends weeks camping out in the desert while assisting professors dig for dinosaur and other fossils.

    Many organizations will use your outdoor skills: Volunteers Outdoor Colorado, VOC, has many projects. Apply for a wildland firefighting job with the Forest Service and actually get paid for dirty work in the woods.
