Background and Purpose of the Bronze Award:

One of the strengths of the Venturing program is tis ability to meet the interest of all Venturers. Sometimes Venturers like to investigate new, different areas, Variety in a crew always seems to make it more fun to go to meetings and outings. Also Venturers probably have many interests or would like to have more. Because of that desire, and to provide a pathway to many different experiences, the Venturing Bronze Awards Program is offered. Venturers can earn their crew's specialty Bronze Award of all five Bronze Awards.

The five different Venturing Bronze Awards are Arts and Hobbies, Outdoor, Sea Scouting (Ordinary Award), Sports, and Youth Ministries. All five Bronze Awards contain the common elements of experience, learning and skill, and sharing your experiences and skills with others. Earning at least one Bronze Award is required for the Venturing G.O.L.D. Award. The Bronze Award is designed as the entry-level award for a Venturer so that they can acquire usable skills that will cary them along the trail to the Venturing Silver Award.

Requirements of the Bronze Award:

For the Arts and Hobbies, Sports, or Youth Ministries, a Venturer must complete at least nine of twelve requirements established for each of those three areas. For Outdoor, Venturers must complete at least four requirements. For Sea Scout, Sea Scouts must earn the Ordinary Rank. To earn a specific Bronze Award such as the Arts and Hobbies Bronze Award, all completed requirements must be Arts and Hobbies requirements.
