Venturing is a youth development program of the Boy Scouts of America for young men and women who are 13 and have completed the eighth grade, or age 14 through 20 years of age. The purpose of Venturing is to provide positive experiences to help young people mature and to prepare them to become responsible and caring adults.


The goals of Venturing are:

  •   Learn to make ethical choices over their lifetimes by instilling the values in the Venturing Oath and Code.
  •   Experience a program that is fun and full of challenge and adventure.
  •   Become a skilled training and program resource for Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, and other groups.
  •   Acquire skills in the areas of high adventure, sports, arts and hobbies, religious life, or Sea Scouting.
  •   Experience positive leadership from adult and youth leaders and be given opportunities to take on leadership roles.
  •   Have a chance to learn and grow in a supportive, caring, and fun environment.

 Young men and women who are interested in joining the Venturing program, contact Adriana Garza at 688-4815 ext. 226.
