Venturing Age Change

Effective May 1, 2010 the National Executive Board resolution to change the eligibility requirements for Venturing to ensure consistency among Venturing, high-adventure bases, and other core programs went into effect.  The minimum age requirement is either 14 years of age OR 13 years of age and completion of the eighth grade.   The maximum age for participation remains under 21 years of age.

In support of this change, a list of frequently asked questions is posted at www.scouting.org/venturing.
