14–18 year olds, girls and boys
Venturers meet Monday at 7.00pm to 900pm at the Scout Hall
The Venturer Unit is called Viaduct Venturers as 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 teambuilding exercises…
A progressive award scheme enables Venturers to extend their range of skills and earn certificates that lead towards the Queen’s Scout Award and the Duke of Edinburgh / Young New Zealander’s Challenge Gold Award.
There are a number of events that Venturers can attend at a local level, a regional level and also at a national level.
An example of the national activities is the Walsh Memorial Scout Flying School or Mountaincraft School, which is held at the Ruapehu Scout Lodge.
The Venturers programme is designed around Year 10 to Year 13 at school

To help other people,
And live by the Scout Law.
