The Core Venturing awards program has four levels starting with the Venturing Award, Venturers then progress by earning the Discovery and Pathfinder Awards. Finally, Venturers earn the Summit Award, in which a young person formally serves as a mentor to other Venturers in his or her crew. They also plan and lead a significant service project.
Venturing has three specialty awards, Ranger, Trust, and Quest.
The Venturing Leadership Award is presented by councils, areas, regions, and the BSA National Council to Venturers and Venturing Advisors who have made exceptional contributions to Venturing and who exemplify the Scout Oath and Scout Law.
