Venturing & Sea Scouting 



Venturing is a youth development program of the Boy Scouts of America for young men and women who are 14 (and have completed the eighth grade) 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. Sea Scouting is a division of Venturing which focuses on teaching Scouts marine and sailing skills.
