The Venturing award is the lowest level award in the newly remodeled award system for Venturers. It is a joining award, with an emphasis on commitment and personal safety.
Vemturers who were registered before June 1, 2014 skip this award. They start with the Discovery award instead.
Participating in an induction ceremony is one of the Venturing award requirements. We were at Fall Fun Rally this past weekend. At the closing show, all of the participants who had joined Venturing since May were asked to stand up and participate in an induction ceremony. They they affirmed there commitment to be Venturers and recited the Scout Oath.
The Venturing award requirements are shown below. Upon completion of this adventure, Venturers receive a patch.
