Lead the Adventure

Venturing is a youth development program of the Boy Scouts of America for young men and women who are 13 (and have completed the eighth grade) through 20 years of age.

Venturing's purpose is to provide positive experiences to help young people mature and to prepare them to become responsible and caring adults.

Venturing is based on a unique and dynamic relationship between youth, adult leaders, and organizations in their communities. Local community organizations establish a Venturing crew by matching their people and program resources to the interests of young people in the community. The result is a program of exciting and meaningful activities that helps youth pursue their special interests, grow, develop leadership skills, and become good citizens.

National BSA site for Venturing is www.Venturing.orgExternal Link

Venturers and Advisors - The Venturing Roundtable called the Forum is the last Thursday of each month at 7:00 p.m. at Council Service Center Conference Room. (Remember that according to the Venturing Handbook one of the duties of the Crew President is to represent the crew at the monthly forums.)Come out and share your ideas to make the Venturing program a success.
