Venturers

We meet on a Thursday from 7-9pm at the Brooklyn Scout Hall during school term.

The Endeavour Venturers Unit comprises youth members from the Brooklyn, Island Bay, Kelburn and Eastern Bays Scout Groups (plus anyone else who wants to join!).

Contact one of our Venturer leaders for more information.
