13 of our Venturer Scouts headed to Penrose State Forest to compete in the Annual Dragon Skin leadership and initiative camp contested by over 850 Venturer Scouts from NSW, VIC, QLD. Jake Juretic led his team of Matt R, Jacob V, and Oscar P in an outstanding effort which was rewarded with a 1st place for our 4th successive win. Trish M’s team put in a good effort with a 19th place and Kanye led his team to 71st place. A BIG CONGRATS to Jake Juretic for being one of only 2 people who have ever been in a winning team 3 times in the 30 years the competition has run! By all accounts, the evening partying and bands were AWESOME. As always, its all about doing your best in the activities and partying Well done to all our teams.
Yes again our annual survival camp was an enormous hit with the venturer scouts as they took on all the challenges of the weekend including limited food, skinning snakes, having to prepare their own meat, spearing and bow and arrow making, lighting fire by rubbing sticks together and so much more.
Check out some of the highlights from our last year
Yet another awesome camp including camping in the snow, downhill ski-ing and snowboarding. This time at Falls CReek so we could step straight out of our snow lodge into the snow and ski down the hill to the chair lift
We headed down to Gerroa with our mates from Sylvanvale Disability Services for a day of surfing fun.
The Venturer Scouts headed down to Wanda and spent the morning clearing considerable amounts of rubbish.
Another awesome Surf camp with the Rovers and linking Scouts, this time at Lake Conjola. We enjoyed windsurfing, surfing, SUP’ing, wakeboarding, waterski-ing, spear fishing, snorkelling with rays and so much more

The venturer scouts headed down to a home of an elderly man called Kevin in Caringbah with gardening tools in hand excited to help him as he has limited physical ability. Throughout the night we chopped trees and bushes, weeded the garden beds and cleaned up around the place. Another happy customer
