To some prospective Venturer Scouts, these requirements may seem simple. To others, they represent new and untried experiences. All of us can remember some aspects of outdoor activities that were absolutely miserable: for example, hiking with an overloaded pack, taking the wrong food, and tents that collapsed.

Earning Venturing Skills is a great way to discover what is required on outdoor expeditions so every Venturer can enjoy these activities for a long time to come.
