Venturers develop their own programmes - from vocational activities developing self-confidence, to leadership courses and team-building exercises...

Action | Adventure | Challenge

Do you like fun new activities, learning new skills and meeting new people……then action, challenges and adventure are waiting for you.

Become a Venturer and let the adventure begin. As a Venturer you will choose your own program. If  it interests you, you can do it. And remember if it’s not fun you aren’t doing it right.

Typical activities are: Tramping, Climbing, Kayaking, Cycle Touring, Camping, Abseiling, Off-Road Car Building and Racing, and Sailing.

You will also learn many new skills and make new friends. Social activities are an important part of Venturing, and you will take part in Quiz nights, Formal Balls , Casino evenings and many other fun events. Meeting other Venturers from around NZ and the world, and making friends for life are all a part of Venturing.

You will also work towards your Queen’s Scout Award. Becoming a Queen’s Scout gives you the skills and confidence to achieve all of your goals in life. Because Queen’s Scouts are exceptional young people, this award can be very useful when looking to attend sponsored courses (eg Outward Bound) and in finding work.

You can become one of these exceptional people, YOU can become a Queen’s Scout.

Fun, challenge, action and adventure await you, join now and experience life as a Venturer.

The Venturers programme is designed around Year 10 to Year 13 at school.
