Boys and Girls Ages 15-17
The Venturer Scout program provides an exciting and enriching experience at one of the most important periods of development in a young person’s life. Venturer Scouts have an opportunity to enrich their Company and themselves by setting and achieving goals, measuring progress, developing in each of the SPICES and realizing their potential as members of Canadian society.
On the Canadian Path, Venturer Scouts focus on the importance of developing character. Less emphasis is placed on Company structure and authority, and more on building a team that takes advantage of the entire skill set of the group.
Venturer Scouts may muster into larger groups that provide greater social-development opportunities and allow Venturer Scouts to work together to ensure everyone reaches his or her personal summit. However, the main focus for the Venturer Scout is on personal development—a Solo Climb.
Push your potential. With support from your Company, climb the mountain of your aspirations to reach a personal summit. The Canadian Path Venturer Scout program is an opportunity for you to explore your own capabilities and experience an exciting variety of adventures with others who share your passion to “Climb Higher”! With the support of others in your Company, you will set goals and meet them over the Scouting Year.
Venturer Scouts in Canada use the metaphor of climbing a mountain as their Section’s symbolic framework. The more you accomplish, the closer you get to your personal summit.
