Venture Scout Challenge


Venture Challenge is designed to help Venture Scouts develop a real understanding of the environment by traveling through the countryside, working as a small team to complete a series of projects, and, most importantly, by meeting local people.

It is a chance to under take an expedition over five to six days that brings a real understanding of Ireland.

It culminates with an assessment process where each team of two are assessed by a team of  trained assessors to ensure the team have met the minimum standard laid out in the criteria.
