The Venturers got given a set of things to make with lego. In two groups, they competed to finish their creations first and to the best of their abilities. Here we see the feature items of the night: “Casa de Pan” and “Casa de sol”
O Thursday night, the Venturers had a cooking challenge night! We were split into two groups and one group had to make anzac biscuits, the other stuffed peppers. The most efficient team won! A fun time was had by all, and the food turned out deliciously!
Three of our Venturers just came back from an amazing weekend up at Kaitoke, taking part in the Velocity course. Velocity is a course which all Venturers are encouraged to take, and it teaches them about how their unit works, what makes a good team, the importance of communication, and many other important skills. Not only was it useful, but all who attended had a fabulous time, and they are all keen to go on the next course, Cooksey, next year.
Venturers doing a BBQ fundraiser to help get some of us to the jamboree at the end of the year as Youth Service Team. Hopefully more BBQs this term, so keep your eyes out when you’re at Bunnings!
In the April holidays, a few of the Venturers went to the National Scout Caving School in Waitomo. The caving school is one of many fantastic national schools, along with ones like photography school, aviation school, snow school, mountaineering school and canoe school. We spent 5 days up there, going into a new cave everyday. We spent about 7 hours each day underground, squeezing into gaps, scrambling up rock falls and trying not to get lost. Despite getting wet, cold, tired and bruised all over, all who went are keen to go back next year!
