There is an Advancement Program in Venturing, that is similar to Boy Scout Merit Badges, as well as the Girl Scout Silver & Gold Awards.
Caving Book Resource List <Click Here>
Rather than simply restate the objectives, and list some of the opportunities, I want to direct you to an external [USSCOUTS.org] web site that does a fabulous job explaining the program, as well as providing complete detail on each of the requirements.
Under the Outdoor Bronze Award you'll find information about the Cave Exploring, and Project COPE, Backpacking, etc.
We could as a group pursue these goals, or individuals can go for it! My opinion (as an adult advisor) is that we're already doing several of these things (caving, Hi & Low Ropes courses, Camping, etc); why not get credit for them?
