Who are Venturers?

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

Why Venturing?

Venturing is based on a unique and dynamic relationship between youth, adult leaders, and organizations in their communities. Local community organizations establish a Venturing crew by matching their people and program resources to the interests of young people in the community. The result is a program of exciting and meaningful activities that helps youth pursue their special interests, grow, develop leadership skills, and become good citizens.

Venturing crews can specialize in a variety of vocation or hobby interests.

What do Venturers Do?

Venturing Extreme Summer Camp

Venturing Extreme is designed for individual Venturers and Venturing Crews to experience six days of fun, exciting and challenging activities while working on their Discovery and Pathfinder Awards.

Venturing Extreme is conducted at Woodruff Scout Camp and the Whitewater Express Ocoee River Base Camp during Weeks 5-8 of Summer Camp. It is open to Registered Venturers ages 14 years to 20 (or age 13 & graduated 8th grade). This is a coed Venturing activity.Venturing Extreme provides a challenging and action packed experience for all participants and an opportunity to work on Venturing Advancement.

Winter Camp

The Atlanta Area Council is proud to offer Winter Camp at Bert Adams Scout Camp for Boy Scout Troops and Venturing Crews. For 5 days and 4 nights in December, Boy Scouts and Venturers will have the opportunity to camp and play at one of America's premier camps. Our winter camp will introduce unique programs and merit badges that are not available at either of our summer camps. We've pulled together the best of our summer camp staffs for an all-star leadership team. Scouts can attend as a Troop or Crew, patrol, or as an individual provisional Scout.Come Join the Fun!
