CREW – 2193
Venturing is an inclusive program through the Boy Scouts of America for males and females aged 14-21 (or 13 and completed the 8th grade). It’s operated through Venturing Crews, units of youth and advisors that meet on set schedules and plan activities and events for youth like you!

Ideals – Venturers are expected to know and live by the Scout Oath and Law, ideals of Scouting created to inspire a culture of servant leadership, both inside and outside of Venturing.
Group Identity – Venturers are not asked to conform to a set uniform. Instead, they have the opportunity to create their own standards for attire at their events and meetings, as they see fit.
Service – Venturers serve their local and distant communities through personal and group service as the crew plans activities and individuals make progress through the Venturing awards program.
The Core Awards:
- All Venturers should earn the Venturing Award soon after formally joining the program.
- Venturers then proceed by earning the Discovery and Pathfinder Awards.
- Finally, Venturers earn the Summit Award, in which a young person formally serves as a mentor to other Venturers in his or her crew.
