Corps of Discovery


LewisClark Interested in a way to recognize the outstanding youth leaders in your Crew or Ship? A way to let the youth who need recognition receive it, whether they are with you for a year or six years? Whether they work toward the Venturing Recognitions or not?

Venturing's Corps of Discovery (COD) will be perfect for you.

The youth choose both the youth and adults to be recognized for their work with the unit.

The youth put on a short ceremony to recognize the new recipients.

The youth charge the new recipients to do service to their community.

The youth charge the members of the unit to help the people they have chosen for this honor to complete their promise.

Based on Lewis and Clark's original expedition west, called the Corps of Discovery, and the group that made the entire trip, called "The members of the Permanent Party", COD offers a recognition program for service to the unit instead of completion of requirements for an award. Election to the Corps is an honor, something to be held in great esteem

The information for holding the election and how to make the recognitions and the ceremony are all in the pages that follow. Take your time, look at things closely, feel free to contact us if you have questions or suggestions for improvements. Then start the Corps for your Crew or Ship.
