The Venture Scout Unit age range is 14.5 to 18 years. During this period the members are given some autonomy to organise their own activities. Main objectives being having fun, adventure and challenge. The unit runs in a form of a committee with the presence of a chairman, secretary and treasurer. Being a Venture will give you the opportunity to try some exciting activities which include land and sea expeditions, abseiling and practicing survival skills.
The Venture unit section is for people that are aged between 15 ½ and 18 ½. Every person can join our venture unit if he/she is within the age range mentioned .The Unit meets every Thursday at 19:30 at our HQ.
The Venture Unit is led by a committee which is made up of :-
- Chairperson – Asst. Chairperson
- Treasurer- Asst. Treasurer
- Secretary – Asst. Secretary
- Quartermaster – Asst. Quartermaster
This Committee is elected at the beginning of each year by the Ventures themselves. Then the committee revises the Codes of attic “Kodici” with the help of the other members in the Venture Unit. It is then checked and signed. This is done in order to ensure that all the codes of attic are read by all the members and thus adhered to.
Every year we organise a lot of activities such as canoeing, abseiling, hikes, expeditions, camps amongst others. There are also some activities that are organised for the troop section in which we are needed to help in the running of the activity .Every year we take part in National Activities such as the Venture Rally, the National Ventures Football Tournament and the National Venture camp in which all Ventures from all the different Scout Groups are invited to take part. We also organise joint activities with other ventures coming from other groups. We also take part in various activities such as clean ups as part of our community service programme.
