Awards and Key Points
The Venturing awards and recognitions programs are designed to help Venturers grow in the areas of adventure, leadership, personal development, and service. Awards serve as benchmarks that give Venturers a structure for developing their own personal vision into manageable goals that lead to recognition by their peers, mentors, and the larger community.
The Venturing awards program has four levels:
- All Venturers should earn the Venturing Award soon after formally joining the program.
- Venturers then proceed by earning the Discovery and Pathfinder awards.
- 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 program is designed to help all Venturers, no matter what their crew specialty, to grow and develop.
