Venturer Scouts is an opportunity for youth age 15-17 to explore their potential and ambition in an inclusive environment, forging friendships with others who share their passion to “Climb Higher”. Opening the door to exciting, real-life, hands-on experiences and outdoor adventures, Venturer Scouts learn to nurture an active and healthy lifestyle. Venturer Scouts work to acquire the knowledge and skills for career development; and participate in thrilling outdoor adventures. Weekend events, extended hikes, Leave-No-Trace camping, spiritual reflection, community service and more, round out the Venturer experience.
A Venturer Scout Section is called a “Company” and a Company may be organized into smaller teams called “Expedition Teams”. However, as a Section with older youth, less emphasis is placed on Company structure and more on building a team that takes advantage of the entire skillset of the group. Venturer Scouts may muster into larger groups that provide greater social-development opportunities and allow Venturer Scouts to work together to ensure everyone reaches his or her personal summit.
