Venturers

Adventure, skills, fun and new experiences for guys and girls aged 14-18 years.

“Vennies” plan and run their own activities together; supported by leaders qualified in adventurous activities and amazing Scout resources across the region, state, country and world.

Caving, canoeing, camping, hiking and abseiling are a big part of the Venturer program aswell as more sedate activities like volunteering at events, movie nights, running activities with younger scouts and cubs and completing other challenges they set themselves.  Want to do something else? Your leaders can probably make it happen.

Our Venturer scouts may have been Scouts for years or may be new to Scouting. Venturers support each other and ensure noone gets left out, no matter their ability or experience level.

We generally meet on Wednesday nights from 7.00pm to 9.00pm in our hall at 3 Icely Rd, Orange. Call us for more info on what we do and you can come along and see for yourself.
