Life as a Venturer Scout
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.
Venturer Scouts Meetings
Venturer Scout Units meet on a regular basis and Venturer 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 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.
Exploring a cave, Learning to fly, Rock climbing, Abseiling, Prusiking.
Develop leadership and management skills, Prepare for your career.
Editing your own film, Discussing issues like marriage and drugs, Making a sculpture.
Gain your First Aid Certificate, Plant a Rainforest
In Venturer Scouts, you can do all this and more, depending on your interests. It's the Youth Members not the adults, who plan and run the activities. Each Venturer Scout Unit is managed by its own Unit Council. The Adult Leader is part of the Council and is there to offer guidance and support.
