Bored? Feel like doing something with your life? Don't know where to start? How about trying Venturers? No prior experience needed!
Its 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. You could be abseiling into a cave or climbing a sheer rock face. Perhaps you'll learn whitewater rafting or ride your mountain bike on an expedition. 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 are not all about the outdoors! Youll also is involved in a well-designed program to develop confidence, independence and teamwork skills. You can get involved in staging professional shows, learning responsibility for the environment and working on service projects to help others in the community.
As a Venturer, you will learn to govern your own, democratic Venturer Unit, where the adult Leaders provide advice and guidance instead of telling you what to do! 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 Queens Scout Award, which employers regard very favourably.
Venturers also have the opportunity to travel around Australia and overseas for events, or to get involved in community service projects to help those in need!!!
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. Venturers are serious about having fun.
Venturers are serious about having a great time and getting the most they can out of life. You need no experience whatsoever to become a Venturer Scout today. What are you waiting for?
