Venturer Info


Ages 14-18yrs

As a Venturer Scout, you could find yourself camping above the snow line, exploring underwater reefs, riding the wind in a high-performance land yacht, earning your pilot's licence, investigating a career in astro-physics, editing your own film, making a sculpture or climbing a sheer rock face.

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.

The action and adventure a Venturer Scout experiences doesn't just develop your physical skills. It also prepares you to meet challenges, to deal with new situations, and to gain independence. 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.

Vic Gathering (or VG )

This is an event that is run annually for all Venturers in Victoria.  Occurring on the 1st weekend in December, it falls after the higher school examination period and is seen by most as a great way to unwind and catch up with friends after a busy year.  VG is usually held at Gilwell Park scout Camp, Gembrook.



Annual Huckleberry Finn type rafting on the mighty Murray River




Iglute is a weekend-long introduction to snow camping and on-snow travel with pack on skis or snow-shoes. We normally do some Igloo or snow-cave building on Saturday and do some skiing around the local area trails.  Igloo-builders confident of their construction skills are encouraged to sleep overnight in their ice creations. Experience this cooler, whiter way of camping and travelling around our mountain country under the expert supervision of the Victorian Branch Ski Touring Team activity leaders.
