Your Dream, Make it happen! (Age 14-18)
It's your life... Get on with it!
Bored? Feel like doing something with your life? Don’t know where to start? Try Venturer Scouts.
It’s 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 and you don’t need to have been a Scout or a Guide to join.
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 also get the opportunity to travel overseas and to organised activities.
Manage your own program
Venturers don’t get told what to do! You will manage your own Venturer Unit, where the adult leaders are there to provide advice, not rule your life. The Unit Council makes the decisions, plans and runs the activities, drawing on expert help whenever it is required.
You’ll also be involved in a well-designed program to develop confidence, independence and teamwork skills, not only during adventurous activities but through community involvement in environmental and service projects.
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.
Get a social life
The Social side of Venturers is up to you. There will be camps and discos, outings and shared interest so you will meet new people and have plenty of time to get to know them and make lifelong friends. Venture
