Can YOU handle the excitement?
Venture into Excitement!
Venturer Scouts have the courage and confidence to say, try and do. You are given opportunities to experience the excitement of living and the training to develop into a capable, self-reliant individual.
Venture into Self Reliance!
You work alongside adults, rather than being told what to do by them, and you draw on their experiences and contacts to get the best out of your program that you design to suit your needs.
You belong to a group of young people your own age, about 15 of you in a Unit. You run your own affairs through a Unit Council. You speak out for your own viewpoint and share the decisions, help make the plans and follow them through.
Venture in New Friendships!
There are dances, hikes, barbecues, service projects and camps to give you a chance to get to know each other. You'll share the good times - and the tough times - and share the work, dedication and fun that it takes to be a Venturer Scout.
Venture into Careers!
At Venturer Scouts, we open your eyes to possibilities you may not have thought of by introducing you not only to new skills but to professionals and tradesmen who can show and tell you first-hand what their jobs are like. Your program may include visits to factories, laboratories and other places where you can see the workforce in action and make up your own mind.
Venture into Creativity!
You can learn the guitar, put on stage plays, paint and write, go to the theatre, make films, take and develop your own photographs and express your thoughts and feelings on all kinds of issues.
Venture into your Community!
Venturer Scouts informs you and shows you what you can do to make a positive contribution to the community you live in. Your program may include learning politics so you can use your vote (when you turn 18) effectively, or environmental issues that concern your future, and you'll work on community projects that care for the elderly or handicapped.
It's a satisfying feeling to know that you can be an intelligent and useful contributor and you can be proud of yourself for making the effort.
Venture in Awards!

There are four activity areas:
The Queen's Scout Award
