Venture Unit

    • The Venture Unit is a section dedicated to teenage scouts aged between 15 and 19. Within the Unit they undertake various (mostly outdoor) activities aiming to improve them:

      • spiritually,
      • physically,
      • intellectually,
      • in their character,
      • emotionally and
      • socially.

      The Unit does not impose these values upon its members but rather, it helps the members to have a wider view of life in order to build a stronger and more active life.


      Meetings are normally held every Saturday between 1730 and 1945 hrs. The members are usually expected to come in their activity dress (the Victoria Scout Group T-Shirt or Sweat-Shirt and in the case of outdoor activities, the group’s scarf and cap).

      The Venture Mission
