What you saw there (I didn't see the numbers; would someone please
send me the numbers privately?? Thanks!) were two sets of numbers
for the Boy Scout Division.
The Boy Scout Division is composed of BOY SCOUTS and VARSITY
SCOUTS. Under "Boy Scouts" are the older boy "VENTURE" (note the
The Venturing Division is composed of VENTURERS (again, please note
the spelling...they are NOT the same!) Currently, under the
transition, the Venturing Division (which used to be the Exploring
Division) is STILL counting members in both "Traditional Venturing"
(the five outdoor and personal growth areas which makes up the
Venturing program today) AND numbers in "LfL" (Learning for Life,
which assumed the other part of what used to be the Exploring
Division, which is why the numbers are STILL being counted as part
of the BSA's numbers). LfL-Exploring has all of the career
exploration (law enforcement, law and government, aviation, medical
careers, etc. etc.) members.

Those breakdowns are found on the BSA's official web site. There's
overlaps between the various program right now, but once the
transition is complete, the breakout will be better and manageable.
