Try Venturing

a Venturer recruitment initiative

Venturers are 14 to 17 years, so why not TRY NOW and start LINKING

To increase youth membership retention by encouraging older Scouts to attend Venturer activities to experience the next Section.


The Try Venturing badge is to encourage older Scouts to Try Venturing.

It is intended to be offered in a non-challenging manner and with a minimum of administration. 

The Try Venturing badge is not designed to take the place of the Scout/Venturer Link badge.

Scouts do not have to progress to Venturers immediately upon the completion of their Try Venturing badge.

It remains the Scout's decision as to when they progress to Venturers  - usually, between 14 and 141/years
