Welcome to Venturing!

Venturing is a year-round program for young men and women who are 14 (or 13 and have completed the eighth grade) through 20 years of age to provide positive experiences through exciting and meaningful youth-run activities that help them pursue their special interests, grow by teaching others, and develop leadership skills. You may find our Venturing Newsletter, The Venturing Times, informative.  You can view the Venturing Crews in your area by going to www.beascout.org, and clicking on the Venturing Tab.
