What does "Adventure" mean to you?

For those involved with Scouts Australia… What does “Adventure” mean to you? Click the link to share your thoughts.

Scouting has long been seen as an organisation focused on adventure.
The Adventurous Program Team of the Youth Program Review is researching and developing recommendations on how Scouting in Australia can be more adventurous not only through camps, outdoor activities and the award scheme, but also in our weekly programs. We want to find out how today’s young people define adventure, and how to apply adventure for all ages. We’re interested in finding out what gets in the way of an adventurous program and will recommend some changes to how we can get more youth members outdoors, re-engaged with the nature and stepping outside their comfort zone.

YPR Research Update!!

The YPR has commissioned research from some external companies to look in-depth at the needs of Australian society today and into the future, and the reasons people don’t remain in Scouting.
