Created for boys and girls ages 14-20, Venturing is a youth-led program where Scouts experience positive mentorship and develop leadership skills in a fun, supportive environment. Youth can participate in both Troop and Venturing activities.

The GSWC has eight Venturing crews throughout the Council. Activity planning takes place on a quarterly basis, details of which can be found below.

Visit the BSA national Venturing site for more information about the program.
