VENTURERS – 15 TO 18 YEARS
Bored? Feel like doing something with your life? Don’t know where to start?
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.
Manage your own program
You’ll have the opportunity to become involved in staging professional shows, learning how to act, sing or play an instrument. Perhaps you’ll make videos, become a sound engineer, develop your own photographs or contribute your writing for publication. You will learn responsibility for the environment and work on service projects, helping other people in the community.
Get a social life
Venturer Scouts is for young people from 14 – 18 and you don’t have to have experience in Scouts or Guides first. It’s your call – find out where your nearest Venturer Unit meets.
