Venturing. Challenge Yourself. Challenge Your World

Life is a series of tests. Shooting the rapids. Rappelling a cliff. Writing a resume. Each one can be a setback, or a chance to shine. Working as a team, the young adults in every Venturing crew welcome the opportunity to pass these trials. A series of successes that build one upon another. Every person playing their role. No one more important than their partners. No challenge achievable without cooperation. These are invaluable experiences that can be had in Scouting. These are life lessons that transform today's Venturers into tomorrow's responsible adults.

The following pages offer a variety of membership-related resources for Venturing.The Central Region Venturing Committee is always looking for additional resources that crews and councils can use to grow and maintain their membership.

As of March 1, 2015, a Venturer who is younger than 18 years old (born on or after March 1, 1997, and, therefore, turns 18 on or after March 1, 2015) must meet all of the same membership requirements as an adult volunteer at the time of the unit's recharter.
