Venturing Advancement consists of four separate Advancement tracks:

  • The Venturing Bronze, Gold, and Silver Awards are available to all youth (male and female) in the Venturing program. 
  • The Ranger Award is also available to all youth in the Venturing program, but is primarily for members of Outdoor Crews.
  • Sea Scouting has its own advancement program  for youth members (male and female) of Sea Scouting Ships.   While Viking Council does not have any Sea Scouting Units, you can visit the Sea Scouting site for details.
  • Any male Venturer who has achieved the First Class rank as a Boy Scout in a troop or Varsity Scout in a team may continue advancement toward Star, Life and Eagle Scout ranks up to his 18th birthday.
    • He must meet the requirements as prescribed in the official Boy Scout Handbook and the current Boy Scout Requirements book.
    • The Venturer may fulfill leadership requirements by serving as president, vice president, secretary, or treasurer of his crew.
    • The Scoutmaster conference will be conducted by the Advisor.
    • As the Venturer meets requirements for the Star and Life ranks, a board of review will be conducted by the crew.
    • The Eagle board of review shall follow the procedures established by the Viking Council BSA.
