Venturing Ranger Award
The Venturing Ranger Award is available to all young men and women who are Venturing youth members of the Boy Scouts of America.

Once earned, it will identify a Ranger as a person who is highly skilled at a variety of outdoor sports and interests, trained in outdoor safety, and ready to lead or assist others in activities. Rangers can be a great program asset to Cub Scout packs, Boy Scout troops, and others.
