Venturer Scouts 35km Stand Up Paddle Board Expedition – Apr 2013

Venturer Scouts 35km Stand Up Paddle Board Expedition

A key part of our group emphasis is to develop leadership, tenacity and teamwork.  To achieve their Queens Scout Award our Venturer Scouts are expected to plan, organise and lead their own expeditions.  One such expedition was  this one.  6 of our venturer scouts paddled 35km along the Colo River from Colo River Reserve to Lower Portland for their Venturer Award carrying all their own gear on board and sleeping overnight on the way.  Well done Hamish, Ross, Nick, Jake, Ryan and our token young woman Caitlin 🙂

Venturer Scouts – Dragon Skin – Apr 2013

13 of our Venturer Scouts headed to Belanglo State Forest to compete in the Annual Dragon Skin leadership and initiative camp contested by over 800 Venturer Scouts from NSW, VIC, QLD. Our chairman Hamish M led his team of Megan C, Jake J, Hayden W and Charlee M to an outstanding 1st place. Jess Ja’s team of Aaron T, Ryan S and Kai W were also exceptional with a brilliant 5th place. Not to be outdone, Ellie C’s team of Kara S, Leonie H and Trish M partied too 🙂 A BIG CONGRATS to Megan Compton for being one of only 2 people who have won this award twice 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.
