Our Venturer Scout Unit – re-formed in 2011 with Scouts moving up from our Troop. We have now joined a combined District Unit with some of our scouting friends in other Moocooboolah and related Units (East Ryde, Tambourine Bay, North Ryde, Hunters Hill, Boronia, Putney and Greenwich) – and now we have more friends joining us for adventurous fun with responsible risk taking…
