The Unit Council is made up of selected Venturers who are responsible for managing Unit affairs including preparation and running of the program of activities, the appointment of activity leaders, finance of the Unit, supervision of Venturer Scout Award Scheme standards and general discipline. Meetings are held at least once a month and separate to the Unit meeting. Yet they are also held briefly prior to and after the Unit meeting to check on progress.
The Unit Council is also responsible for the initial drafting and annual review of the Unit Constitution. The Constitution is a set of rules and guidelines formulated by the Venturers themselves.

MCMK Venturer Unit Constitution
This is a great way to end the year. For those that haven’t been to Deep Pass before, it’s an amazing camp up in the Blue Mountains near Newnes. It’s on the 17th to 19th of December – so have those days free if you can!
This is a fantastic place for swimming, canyoning, caving and abseiling, and there is a fantastic camping ground where you can just chill out. Getting there is easy, it’s a drive up to the mountains, and a 1km walk to the campsite.
For those of you that don’t have your Venturing Skills Award, this is a great opportunity to get it. This award is the basic award for Venturing. Once you have this you are able to participate in Dragonskin and other activities required for your Queen Scout Award.
The Venturing Skills Award consists of these 3 items:
– First Aid
– Have a basic knowledge of the award scheme.
Check your Venturer Scout Record Book for more details, and go over the things that you need to know. Contact your leaders if you have any questions.
Also, check your emails for more specific departure times and specific details for the Deep Pass camp.
See ya’ll there!!
