What is Venturing?

Now you may be asking yourself: What is Venturing?

Venturing is a BSA program for male and female youth and adults aged 14-21 (or 13 and completed 8th grade) focused on leading your own adventures.

Venturing is fun because:

  • You can lead your own adventures
  • Plan the trips the way you desire
  • Attend different types of events
  • There are more shooting sports options
  • Could be eligible for more scholarships
  • And, you can grow more as a leader!


Some fun facts about Venturing are:

  • Venturing Units are called Venturing Crews instead of Troops
  • Venturing uses the same Scout Oath, Law and Sign as Scouts BSA, but Venturing has its own motto “Lead The Adventure!”
  • You can be registered in Venturing BSA and Scouts BSA and work on advancement in both programs
  • Scouts who are involved with Venturing stay in Scouting longer

If you are interested in the Venturing Program you can join or create a Venturing Crew alongside your unit.
