Five of our Scouts and Venturers attended a Youth Leadership course on the weekend, put on by the ACT Scouts branch, where they learned about what it takes to assist or lead a Joey or Cub scout program.
Two of our Venturers immediately put their new knowledge to good use, and ran a fun and rewarding games session for the Joeys on Tuesday evening.
First up, was “Find the Venturer” where the Joeys had to fan out into the park to find their two venturers. There was even one hiding up a tree!
This was followed by many styles of racing and running games, a vigourous game of indoor soccer, and an increasingly challenging game of catch and throw where Joeys could practice their skills.
After so much running around, it was time for a drink of water and a fruit break. No, the Joeys are not worshipping the Venturers in the photo below, but rather, they are participating in our Pfadfinder Puppy Dog Water Bowl Challenge. It’s a favourite for some of the kids, and something it seems they don’t get to do at home!

At the end of the evening, the Joeys enjoyed crowding around their new Venturer heroes and laughing at some funny pictures taken during the evening.
Thanks, Venturers! We had a great night, and are looking forward to more scout- or venturer-led programs in the near future.
