Boy Scouts is a boy-lead program for 11- to 18-year-olds. While involved in a program of fun and adventure like camping, biking, and hiking, youth learn to lead, take responsibility, and keep themselves physically and mentally fit.

Venturing and Exploring are youth-lead programs for young women and men who are 14 to 21 years old.

Venturing is a youth development program that is based around high adventure, Sea Scouts, sports, religious, or hobby themes.

Exploring is career-based and prepares young people to make informed decisions about possible careers. Some Explorer program examples can be police, fire, search and rescue, law, film, or any other of dozens of career choices.
