About Our Ventures

While we enjoy a social get together and chat every now and then, Clontarf Beach Venturer Scout Unit is about pursuing our Unit and individual goals and supporting each other in working towards and achieving those goals. We actively participate in regular outdoor activities such as camping, hiking and other events both in our Unit as well as District, Region, Cross Region, Branch, National and World organisational activities. We also actively work towards improving our self, community and world by pursuing awards offered in the OAS (Outdoor Adventure Skills) and SIA (Special Interest Areas) programs.

SIA, OAS and eLearning in our unit

SIA (Special Interest Area) is about using your hobbies and interests to work towards achieving badges from the 6 areas, Adventure & Sport, Arts & Literature, Creating a better world, Environment, Growth & Development and Stem & Innovation.

OAS (Outdoor Adventure Skills) provides members with the opportunity to experience and then pursue activities of interest in the great outdoors. OAS consists on 3 main areas, Core Skills (Bushcraft, Bushwalking and Camping), Land Based Skills (Alpine, Cycling and Vertical) and Water Based Skills (Aquatics, Boating and Paddling).

eLearing gives us access to a level of training that can go towards our ATAR score and also towards certificates II, II, IV in many areas.
