Worldwide Activity Holidays for All Members of the Scout Association

With a passionate and knowledgeable team of staff, Venture Abroad is proud to have been operating tailor-made Scout and Explorer Holidays since 1970.

“For almost twelve years, Scouting has enjoyed a successful partnership with Venture Abroad. As part of a global movement we value the assistance of the team at Venture Abroad, who create lifelong memories for our members by making international adventure accessible and easy. We look forward to our continued partnership and increasing the opportunities to members of The Scout Association to travel abroad in 2014 and beyond.”

In 2012, we helped Cub, Scout and Explorer Scout groups venture to destinations throughout Europe. We are pleased to report that our group's average activity holiday experience was rated as 4.7 out of 5 and 100% said that they would recommend Venture Abroad to Scouting friends.
