As part of a month focused on Conservation. Dave and Kylie from EcoDivers gave a fantastic talk on ocean conservation to the Scouts.
Building a new Venturer Troop is a great chance for Fairlight/Manly Scout Troop to provide the benefits and adventures of Scouting to the older 15-18 year age group.
What are Venturers? Venturers are male and female Scouts between the ages of 14 and 18.
What dio Venturers do? Venturers take the skills and experience they gained n Scouts and apply at much higher level. Venturers are expected to manage the Troop, themselves and the activities that they want to do.
Who can join? As we are starting up a new Troop, we want to lead off with as many young adults with Scouting experience as possible. Anyone between the ages of 14-18 with Scouting background, outward bound experience; bushwalking, kayaking; abseiling; canyoning, is welcome to apply.
When do they meet? The parade night will be Friday, 7:00pm to 9:00pm. First night will be in Feb 2015. Currently we are meeting with the Seaforth Venturers until we get enough numbers to go out on our own.
Who do I contact? Venturer Scout Leader, Leigh Costin, firstname.lastname@example.org
