Venturers is the next step up from Scouts, though you don’t need any prior experience in Scouts to join!

You may find yourself exploring the great Aussie bush, camping above the snowline, diving on coral reefs or earning your pilot’s license.

As Venturers, you will govern your own, democratic Venturer Unit, where the adult Leaders provide advice and guidance instead of telling you what to do!


The Venturer section is open to youths between the ages of 14 to 18.

The Venturer Unit frequently meets on Mondays during school term times at the Kincumber/Bensville Scout Hall from 5:00 pm until 7:00 pm, however we are often out and about around the Central Coast.

Sounds fun? Contact us and embark on a new adVenture.
