Advancement



Venturing Award
The first step in any journey is the courage to begin. At this level, the new crew member makes their commitment to join and move forward into the experience of Venturing.

Discovery Award
The adventure of participating with the crew unfolds, and each  Venturer begins to discover his or her interests and talents. As  the Discovery Award recipients develop new skills and competencies, their eyes are opened and the world expands  for them.

Pathfinder Award
The Venturer’s capabilities and skills expand and with them come increased responsibility for defining their own way forward in life, service to others and formal planning and leadership of the crew toward its goals.

Summit Award
The highest award of Venturing, the Summit Award, goes to those Venturers who have matured in their personal direction,  skills, and life competencies, and who have accepted the responsibility to mentor others and serve their communities in  a lasting way.
