Venture Scouts are boys and girls between 15-17 years of age.
Venturer Scouts is for males and females aged 15 to 17 who never turn down a good challenge and love to push themselves to their limits. These ages may vary up to 6 months. 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.

Unit & District Events
As part of a venture unit you can help plan and participate in unit events such as camps, hikes and outings. where you can do activities that would not typically fit into a section night such as: bush walking, canoeing, abseiling and much more. Unit Events are planed by the unit so you can do what ever you feel like.
You can also participate in District events witch are great for meeting new people and hanging out together.
