Adventurous Activities

Scouts Victoria Adventurous Activity teams are an integral part of the delivery of our Outdoor Adventure Skills. Whether you’re an adult that is looking to learn a new skill or a youth member looking to fulfil your next adventure, the Adventurous Activity teams are ready for you with a calendar of jam-packed experiences that are Adventurous, Fun, Challenging and Inclusive.
