Personal Progression

Venturers set six personal goals at the beginning of a program cycle, each in support of a Program Area. These should be increasingly challenging as the Venturer nears his or her Summit.

The Solo Climb: From the moment someone joins Venturer Scouts, he or she sets off towards the summit of a personal mountain. A Venturer scales the mountain as he or she achieves meaningful personal development through the Program Areas.

Base Camps: At the start of each program cycle, the Venturer Scouts will get together for a “Base Camp” meeting. This provides them an opportunity to review the expeditions that have happened since the last Base Camp and to plan a new set of expeditions.

Expeditions: Expeditions are the adventures that Venturer Scouts in a Company take on.
