Venturers are aged 14.5 - 18 and meet on Tuesday nights from 7.30 - 9.30.
Venturers participate in activities as a unit such as soap swaps, swimming, bush walking, cycling, mini golf, movies, abseiling and cooking.
Venturers participate in two main camps throughout the year. These are Dragon Skin and Vent Out.
Dragon Skin is a long-weekend camp where teams go hiking in a NSW State Forest. They test their initiative, leadership, teamwork and technical skills in a competition against other Venturer Units. Around 200 teams participate, with 1000 Venturer Scouts attending each year. Over 600 Rovers, leaders and support teams attend to assist with the organisation of the event.
Held at Camp Kuring-gai on the Hawkesbury River this camp gets the Venturers mixing with the Scouts of Sydney North Region. We go with
Waitara Scouts to encourage them to come up to Venturers when they are old enough.
Waitara Venturer Unit have been lucky enough to take part in several trips throughout the year, most recent including Tasmania in January 2018 and Fraser Island in July 2014.
