Venturing is one of the most exciting and fastest growing youth development programs in the BSA. Available to both young men and young women who are at least 14 and have completed the eighth grade through 20 years of age, Venturing provides a positive experience for young adults who are interested in broadening their skills in leadership, vocations, and other personal interests. As young adults, they are able to do more and go further than younger scouts as they experience a program full of adventure and leadership challenges in the areas of high adventure, sports, arts, religious life, and Sea Scouting. The ultimate goal of Venturing is to help young people mature into responsible and caring adults.
