Murray Venturer Unit - Recommencing Thursday 29th July, 7:30 to 9:30pm

The 5th Mildura Scout Group's Venturer Unit, known as the 'Murray Venturer Unit' will recommence meeting at the 5th Mildura Scout Hall from next Thursday night from 7:30 to 9:30pm. We will meet every Thursday night during school term.

We have chosen to meet on Thursday nights from 7:30 to 9:30pm so that we can meet with other Venturer Units and have joint nights on occasion.

Max will be leading the Venturer Unit and Donna Munro (Queen's Scout) and I have offered to be assistant leaders. (I will remain as an Assistant Scout Leader also).

The first night will be a planning / information / learning night. We plan to get the Unit up and running quickly so that we can offer the 5th Mildura Scouts, who are ready to move onto Venturers, an option to stay part of the 5th Mildura Scout Group. Of course, we also welcome new Venturers who have not previously been in Scouting to join us.

The Venturer Unit program is based on 'Community Involvement', Personal Growth', 'Adventurous Activities' and 'Leadership Development'. Involvement in all of these areas, a bit of hard work (and a lot of fun) leads to the Scouting Movement's most prestigious award, the 'Queen's Scout Award'. We will be encouraging all Venturers to work towards this award.

We have been invited by the '2nd Mildura Venturer Unit' to join them on a Venturing Skills Camp on August 27 to 29. This is the first award in the Venturer Award Scheme, and the first step towards the Queen's Scout Award. I envisage our Venturer unit will also be involved in District Scouting events when invited.

We look forward to growing an active and dynamic Venturer Unit at the 5th Mildura Scout Group.

Parent Meeting 5th Mildura Scouts

We will be having a Parent Group Meeting this Wednesday at 8:30pm at the Scout Hall. It would be great if all scouts had a parent/carer at this meeting as we need to discuss a number of important upcoming events that need every families support and input. The meeting will be finished in time to collect your scout at 9:30. Hopefully we will see many of you on Wednesday night.
