Venturer Events

BARCOM - September School Holidays

BARCOM is a unique Venturer Activity - rafting down the Murray River - conducted in the September school holidays each year. It consists of four rafts, 3m wide x 4.8m long, on which deck boxes are provided to carry food, water, cooking equipment, tools, packs, tents and personal equipment for the week.

Each raft has a crew of eight, so each expedition can accommodate 32 participants. BARCOM is an activity that challenges and enhances your Scouting skills by active participation in building, launching, provisioning, rowing and navigating a raft down the mighty Murray River. Rafting expeditions provide plenty of exciting challenges, requiring first class teamwork and initiative to overcome situations as they arise. Lasting friendships are formed and the experiences will be relived many times and spoken about for years to come.

BARCOM provides all materials, food, experienced & qualified Leaders, and a great adventure!
