A Venturing Guide to Earning Awards

What are the Venturing Awards?

The Venturing awards and recognition programs are designed to help Venturers grow in:

  • Adventure
  • Leadership
  • Personal Growth
  • Service

The Venturing awards program has four levels.

  • All Venturers should earn the Venturing Award soon after joining the program.
  • Venturers then earn the Discovery Award and Pathfinder Award.
  • Finally, Venturers earn the Summit Award, in which a young person formally serves as a mentor to other Venturers in his or her crew.

Venturing is a flexible program and the awards are designed to help all Venturers, no matter what their crew speciality is.
