Initiative in Venturer language is a self starting power, an ability to get up and go, without being told what to do. It’s resourcefulness, working out what the problem is, figuring out the best way to tackle it, then going ahead on your own.
An Initiative Course is a test of these skills. There will be numerous activities along the route to test your initiative, leadership, teamwork and basic Venturing knowledge.
See the Venturer Record Book page 27 for the requirements.
Participants will need to bring all the necessary equipment for an overnight hike.
The Initiative Activity is the compulsory part of the Venturer Award.
An Initiative Activity is designed to enable Venturers to:
- develop how to use initiative
- practice using initiative
- test their ability to use initiative
Leaders are expected to prepare Venturers in problem solving procedures.
Friday 28th - Saturday 29th July 2017
