Life as a Venturer Scout
Venturer Scouts is for males and females aged 15 to 17 who never turn down a good challenge and love to push themselves to their limits. These ages may vary up to 6 months. Venturer Scouts never turn down a challenge, in fact, they make their own! Scaling a 30m rock-face or abseiling into caves may frighten most people but Venturer Scouts face the challenge head on and then go white water kayaking! As a Venturer Scout you’ll work in Units with other Venturer Scouts and your Adult Leaders are always available to provide you with advice, encouragement, and support. As a Venturer Scout you’re given the freedom to choose your own activities, depending on your interests, because we know that you’re most motivated to achieve when you’re passionate about what you do.
“As a Venturer Scout I’ve learnt the importance of challenging myself in order to grow. With the help of my friends at Scouts I’ve managed to experience some awesome things while working to achieve my goals, which is the best reward ever”

“Last weekend I attended my first weekend training session at BP Park. I had an awesome time, met great enthusiastic people and learnt so much.

Venturer Scout Meetings
Venturer Scout Units meet on a regular basis and Venturer Scout Leaders are simply there to provide adult leadership and support; they act as your Scouting mentors. Unit progress is discussed at meetings, along with how each Unit is turning their goals of the Venturer Scout Program into reality. Socialising is a must and strong bonds are formed through teamwork and a common desire to ensure that everyone becomes the best person they can be. If you’re a Venturer Scout your only limits are the ones that you set for yourself.
