Personal Achievement for Venturer Scouts
Your personal journey as a Venturer Scout is all about setting challenges for yourself and meeting your goals using a Plan-Do-Review process. It is through these challenges that you make your way from Tree Line to Snow Line, eventually reaching the Summit. This journey is called your Solo Climb, and your progress will along the way be recognized with Personal Progression badges. You will progress at your own pace, and your fellow Venturer Scouts and Company Scouters will support you along the way.
In addition to the goals you set for yourself as part of your Venturer Scout Journey, you have the opportunity to pursue a variety of other awards, including the Queen’s Venturer Scout Award – the Top Section Award for the Venturer Scout Section. You can also progress in the Outdoor Adventure Skills (OAS), earn the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, and demonstrate your proficiency in a second language to achieve your Language Strip.
