Venturers is all about learning by doing. It is about practising skills and then applying them to practical situations.
In GWS Region, the Venturer Scout Section and the Waratah Scout Activity Fellowship have combined forces to develop an event that specialises in giving teams of Venturers a unique, custom built, multi-faceted problem full of twists and turns that will test their skills to the limit.
Of course, such an event should also be fun and we build in activities, stunts and gimmicks to ensure that our participants walk away from this event with great experiences, new friends and the satisfaction of having achieved the Challenge of a Lifetime.
GWS Waratah is one of the largest and fastest-growing annual events in Scouts Australia. While GWS Region takes pride in building and running this event, Waratah is open for all Venturers, Guides and in most years, Scouts over the age of 13.5 to come and experience this truly awesome and awe-inspiring event.
