Kayaking into the sunset. Volunteering at an animal shelter. The choice is yours! Each activity provides an opportunity to shine and learn more about yourself and the world around you. Venturing is youth-led and youth-inspired. You’ll acquire life skills and gain experiences that will prove to be valuable regardless of where your future takes you, all while having a blast!

Venturing is an inclusive BSA program for males and females who are 14-20 years old (or those who are 13 and have completed the 8th grade). It’s operated through Venturing Crews, which are units comprised of youth and advisors that meet on set schedules and plan activities and events around certain activities they all have in common. Venturing emphasizes youth leadership through the ALPS Model, which stands for adventure, leadership, personal growth and service.
