I was able to take a Philmont Training Center course on Scouting with Older Boys. The leaders of the course were from Utah and were Mormons. (There was also a BSA professional from LA) They pretty much invented the Venture Program to encourage boys 14 and older to remain in scouting. It was a pleasure to be among such great scouters.

I can’t forgive the FReeper degenerates that are so rabidly opposed to such outstanding men and Americans. It is a national tragedy.

Are you sure you're not thinking of Varsity Scouting? Varsity Scouting is primarily an LDS Program.

Venturing is a coed program that replaced Exploring when Exploring became part of Learning for Life. LDS Scouting doesn't have coed programs.
