Venture Scouts are aged 15-17. Ventures meet regularly to prepare for expeditions, camps and their next outdoor challenge.
The real adventure is in the outdoors – mountain hiking, water-based activities, mini-expeditions, camps & expeditions from one night to ten nights in length, community service projects, hostel stays, and sometimes overseas trips. Venture Scouts love the social aspect of Scouting. National events for Ventures include Scout Fest, Ventact, Mountain Havoc, Venture Challenge and also Jamborees (national and international camps).
There are also events run by the Scout County and Scout Province.
The ratio of adults to Ventures is set accordingly. Scouters are all Garda Vetted and trained in Child Safeguarding.
Scouting Ireland is committed to Scouting safely at all ages.
