Venturers are for young men and women aged 14½ years to 18 years.
It’s your life… Get on with it!
Venturers is a do-it-yourself mix of fun, adventure and personal challenge that will bring you together with other young people who feel the same way.
You may find yourself exploring wilderness Australia, camping above the snowline or diving on coral reefs. You could be abseiling into a limestone cave or climbing a sheer rock face. Perhaps you’ll learn white water kayaking or ride your mountain bike on an expedition across real mountains.
Whatever your challenge, there will be trained and highly experienced adults to guide you through the experience, to teach you the necessary skills and safety techniques. Venturers get the opportunity to travel overseas and to organised activities, to live with a different community to provide service to others.
There are leadership and management courses that will help you in your career and personal life, when you have to make all the decisions. You’ll learn how to meet new challenges, deal with new situations, and develop your own independence.
Your achievements will be recognised, with the ultimate goal the Queen’s Scout Award, which employers regard very favourably. Venturers really is the pathway to success.
