14 – 18 year old girls and boys (school years 10 – 13)

Venturers meet on Mondays at 7:00pm to 9:00pm at the Scout Hall

Venturers, four youth and three adults, are posing in a group on a mountain top.

The Viaduct Venturers takes its name from the Belmont Viaduct, which ran through the Northern Suburbs until it was demolished in 1951. The unit is made up of young people from Paparangi, Newlands and Johnsonville Scout Groups.

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

Venturers extend their range of skills through a progressive award scheme. They can earn certificates that lead towards the Queen’s Scout Award and the Duke of Edinburgh / Young New Zealander’s Challenge Gold Award.

A Venturer enjoys washing a car as part of a fundraising activity.

Venturers are not shy of a challenge and enjoy attending local, regional and national events. National events include the Walsh Memorial Scout Flying School and Mountaineering School, held at the Ruapehu Scout Lodge.
