Congratulations to our Chief Scout award recipients....

Well done 67th Scouting members and leader advisor's on this milestone achievement..

What do Venturer Scouts do?

A message from the president: Regular meetings are held at St. Aidan's on Sunday evenings or at offsite locations.  

We like to keep busy planning camps and activities, and we also like to voluneteer as Offer of Services at group, area and National camps.  We also like doing service for big camps, like this summer's Pacific Jamboree 2015 and look forward to the upcoming Canadian Jamboree Halifax 2017. But that's not all, we have many other adventures in the planning so more to come.

What is the Venturer Scout Promise?

On my honour
I promise that I will do my best
To do my duty to God
and the Queen,
To help other people at all times,
And to carry out
the spirit of the Scout Law.

What is the Venturer Scout Motto?

Challenge

What is Venturer Scouts?

The Venturer Scout program is all about challenge. From start to finish, the program is run almost entirely by the youth members. Youth will have the opportunity to plan and execute activities which reflect their own personal and group interests. In Venturer Scouts, the sky is the limit! Plus, Venturer Scouts get the opportunity to "try on" different exciting career options through their activities.

Each company has an executive consisting of at least a president, a vice-president, a secretary and a treasurer. The executive is responsible for the majority of the planning. Each company has an advisor (sort of like a leader), who makes sure that your event will run smoothly by offering advice and suggestions. Venturer Scouts meet in a group called a Company. Each Venturer Scout learns a promise and motto to help guide their personal development

The Venturer
 Scout program emphasizes having fun while encouraging teens to feel good about themselves, their friends and family and the environment. Venturer Scouts' leadership skills are put to the test while gaining self confidence.
