The overseas trip is planned for the end of December, and each of the six Venturers aim to raise $2500 each to fund the journey. 

Venturer leader Verena Doyle said it was a great opportunity for the teenagers to be pushed outside of their comfort zone and try new things. 

The group will be able to try white water rafting, mountain biking, rock climbing, abseiling, and caving, amoung a range of adventure activities. 

Dead lead batteries, including car, truck and wind farm batteries can be dropped off at the back of the Scout Hall at 7 North Parade, Creswick or contact Verena Doyle on 0421690890 to arrange collection.
