Venturing. Lead the Adventure.
Young men and women 14-20 years old (or 13 and have completed eighth grade)
All teens have one—a moment that opens their eyes to a world that’s bigger than they ever imagined. It might happen while paddling a quiet lake, bonding with new friends around a bonfire, or rising to the challenge of leading an exhausted crew to the edges of adventure. Venturing gives young men and women access to a range of programs and empowers them to create their own experiences. It brings Scouting values to life through both high adventure outdoor activities and challenging real-world projects. The program helps young people mature, build leadership skills, grow by teaching others, and pursue their own unique interests.
