The Living History program feature lets Scouts experience different cultures, times, and places in an interactive and hands on manner. They witness reenactments and learn about historical events and different ways of life.
Outdoor Living History Ranger Elective
The methods of Scouting are the ways that Scouting’s aims of developing character, citizenship, and fitness in youth are achieved. One of the methods for Venturers is “teaching others”. Teaching others is the best way to really acquire deep knowledge of an area. By sharing their skills with others, Venturers retain their knowledge better and provide service to others
The Venturing Ranger Award is available to all young men and women who are registered Venturers. This is the high adventure award for Venturers. A Venturer who earns the Ranger Award has shown that he or she is ready to live life to the fullest and is prepared for all types of situations.
To complete the Outdoor Living History elective for the Venturing Ranger award, Venturers must research a culture and time period, learn to participate in that history, and teach others about what they have learned.
