pics: Venturer spotlight – 2012 and 2013 expeditions

Time to turn the spotlight on our senior youth and share some of their past and planned adventures.  As Venturers, they largely run themselves: building their own program of activities (with a bit of guidance and advice from Vic).  Aged 15 – 18, these activities are bigger and bolder than the cubs and scouts tackle.

In summer of 2012 our Venturers and a Leader joined the National Canoe School.  After the initial training in Taumarunui they set off for five days of canoeing and adventure down the Whanganui River to Pipiriki. See the pics below, and a movie of the highlights on the Venturers’ page.

For summary 2013, Venture South 2013 beckons.  10 days in Riverton, South Island “designed to challenge you both physically and emotionally, allowing you to develop new skills and to build new levels of self confidence.  But most of all.. a whole lot of fun!”
