For Venturer Section Whanau

Kirikiriroa and St. Peter’s Venturer Section is a special place, where your young person will experience exciting opportunities to grow and develop as a person.

While at Venturers your young person will design their own programme and take control of what they want to do. Venturers will have the opportunity to work on activities and tasks that are meaningful to them. If they’re not having fun, they’re not doing it right! They will have the ability to work both individually and within their Unit.

You can support your Venturer by engaging in what they’re doing at Venturers.

Encourage them to identify personal challenges so they can work with their Unit to progress and overcome their limits. You could also help them evaluate their progress and identify potential opportunity areas for achieving their Achievement Pathways.

Remember that Venturers is all about personal determination and independence. Every young person will get something different out of Venturers, and one of the best things you can do to support them on their journey is to support and encourage them to make decisions for themselves about what their journey will be.

While parents are not expected to stay for Venturer sessions, there are many opportunities to support your Venturer and Kirikiriroa and St. Peter’s Scout Group.

It might be joining Kirikiriroa Scout and St. Peter’s Support TEam, helping the group fundraise, or even becoming a Kaiārahi (leader)! There are so many ways you can offer your support to Scouting.

If this is something that interests you, please discuss this with your Venturer’s Kaiārahi or the Group Leaders Kakapo and Kauri. As part of our child protection and Safe From Harm policy, any adult wanting to assist with any form of Scouting activity will need to be police checked. You can read more about this on the Scouts Aotearoa website and submit an application.

Any help you are able to give to Kirikiriroa and St. Peter’s Scout Group and the Scout Movement is greatly appreciated.
