Venturing

Helping young men and women turn discoveries into opportunities

All teens have one—a moment that opens their eyes to a world that’s bigger than they ever realized. It might happen while paddling a quiet lake, bonding with new friends around a beach bonfire, or rising to the challenge of feeding 100 hungry Scouts with a limited budget and even less time. 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.
