The Venture Scout Unit (14½-18 years) is a do-it-yourself mix of fun, adventure and personal challenges that brings together like-minded youth from all walks of life for weekly meetings and activities.
As a Venture Scout you are given the opportunity to explore Malta – trekking or canoeing along the coastline, abseiling at Wied Babu or having a laugh at campfire. On occasion travelling overseas to camp in the mountains or forests with other Venture Units from Europe or beyond.
The Venture Section is about having fun and looking for new opportunities of discovery. You will meet new people and make lifelong friends. It provides valuable “down-time” from your studies, giving you the opportunity to remain refreshed and focused on your schooling.
Through a range of ambitious badges and awards, Venture Scouts can enhance their skills and knowledge. As a Venture you will learn how to deal with new situations and develop your leadership and life skills which will serve you well when you need to take responsibility and make important decisions for yourself.
Venture Scouts often get the opportunity of working alongside other Venture Scouts from different Units. In this way they can participate in an even wider range of activities.
“To anyone who hasn’t tried Scouting before, I’d say come on up and have a go! I think that most people don’t really know that Scouting is about activities, friendship and meeting people from other countries. I’ve been in the Movement since I was a Cub and I still love it!”
