SCOUTS New Zealand promotes many activities and events throughout the year to compliment our weekly programmes run locally.
Gang Shows, JOTA (Jamboree on the Air), JOTI (Jamboree on the Internet), MudSlide Day, Jamborees for Scouts, Venture for Venturers, Regattas, Charity Golf Tournament and international Jamborees, to name just a few, provide adventurous activities across all Scouting ages. More details about national events can be found on the National Events page of the National website.
Illuminate 2019 is the flagship event for the Venturer section. Held only every three years, Venture brings together around 1,000 youth members from all over New Zealand, Australia and further afield to Kaiwaka, Northland, New Zealand.
Venture offers a perfect blend of responsibility and freedom – you get to choose the scale of your adventure. Whether you decide to pursue an existing passion or try something for the very first time, there are options for all.
Illuminate 2019 will be twelve days (31st December 2018 - 11th January 2019) of action-packed fun, with a selection of activities simmering day and night to keep you and your new mates busy!
