Event description

Description

Easter Venture (EV) is a four-day Branch competitive hike open to Venturers, older Scouts, and Guides. The aim of Easter Venture is to enjoy a four-day break, hiking with friends in a competitive environment.



IMPORTANT NOTES BEFORE APPLYING:


LEADERS: All leaders at Easter Venture have assigned roles with the teams of Admin, Hike, Camp, First-aid, Theme, Communications and Activities. Please confirm your position with the relevant team before applying for EV. If you would like to participate but don't have an assigned role please email easterventure@sa.scouts.com.au and provide information on any relevant skills or qualifications.

INITIATIVE ACTIVITY: There are only 20 positions available for the initiative activity on a first-come first-served basis. If you have previously completed the initiative activity please do not select this option so that others have the opportunity to do it.

SCOUTS: Registered Scouts over 13.5 years old are invited to apply for Easter Venture. Please contact the event coordinator (Michael Woodward, woodward27@adam.com.au, 0434 924 399) to discuss your bushwalking skills and qualifications. If eligible, you will be provided with an eventbrite code to access a discounted ticket ($35 for applications before 17th March, or $55 until applications close on 31st March).



Each year a different theme is applied, and participants are expected to hike dressed appropriate to the theme.


Points are awarded for both hiking skill, and theme awareness.

Along the hike, there will be special activities staged where more points can be obtained if you complete the activity.

At night all Youth Participants will stay at designated camp, where more activities will be provided. Again, your camping skills will be awarded points, which will count towards your overall score.

Participants compete for an overall E.V. perpetual trophy. This trophy will go to the team who completes the most hiking checkpoints, complies with the theme in spirit and execution, completes activities along the way and can demonstrate good camping skills.

Hike is the basis for this event, and points gained here are given a greater weight.

Hike checkpoints are graded, and the most difficult have a higher point value.

There are also trophies for Best Theme, Most Activity Points, Highest Camping Standard, Best Hike team (Day Pack and Full Pack), and Pick of the Teams.
