  • Venturing Ranger Award  High adventure and the outdoors have always been of interest to young Americans as well as an important part of the BSA program.  Because of the attraction of high adventure, the Ranger Award is available to all Venturing youth members of the Boy Scouts of America.  The purpose of the award is to encourage Venturers to achieve a high level of outdoor skills proficiency; recognize achievement of this high level; provide a path for outdoor/high adventure skills training; and establish Rangers as a highly trained leadership resource for crews, Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts and the community.  Click HERE for the full requirements.
  • The Quest Award  In the years since Venturing started, the program has been defined by the activities Venturers do.  Sports have become a very important activity within crew programs.  While working on the Quest Award, Venturers will be required to learn more about what makes up a nutritional diet as well as design their own personal exercise plans based upon lifestyle, fitness levels, and desires for a healthy and long life.  For the Quest Award brochure, click HERE.
  • TRUST:  Religious & Community Life Award  In the years since Venturing started, the program has been defined by the activities Venturers do and a popular activity is service.  Religious organizations charter the majority of Venturing crews.  The TRUST award is a unique opportunity for the youth of Venturing.  While working on the TRUST award, Venturers will learn more about themselves, their communities, their religion and culture, as well as those of others. 
  • Shooting Sports Outstanding Achievement Award  While working on the Ranger Shooting Sports elective, Venturers are required to complete certain disciplines.  They will go beyond the basic requirement and complete 5 of the 7 disciplines.  For the Award Application, click HERE.
