Scouting's Adventures for Older Boy Scouts

Older Scouts (those who are at least 13 years old or have completed the seventh grade) seek challenge and variety. How does Scouting capture their interest? Through diverse high-adventure and outdoor opportunities. Scouting not only provides adventure but also emphasizes values through ideals that reinforce God, country, and personal growth.

Both Varsity and Venture Scouts work on advancement. They also participate in high adventure, team sports, and other special outdoor activities.

Older Scouts plan and run their own meetings and activities with minimal adult guidance. They participate in exciting outdoor programs like climbing and council and national high-adventure programs including Philmont Scout Ranch, Northern Tier, and the Florida Sea Base.

These resources can help you deliver the promise to your older Scouts.
