SOUTH AREA PIONEER AWARD EXPLORATION ASSESSMENT

Dear all,

South Area is pleased to bring you the 2022 South Area Pioneer Award Exploration Assessment. As part of the Pioneer Award requirements, Venture Scouts are to undergo an Exploration Assessment. During the test, they will be challenged both physically and mentally on their resilience and leadership qualities. They will be assessed on their navigation and recording skills.

This is a one-part assessment.

  1. Day Exploration

Please refer to the Annex A for details.

While preference will be given to Venture Scouts from South Area units, Venture Scouts from other areas may still register.

Venture Scouts Leaders are to register their Venture Scouts through the MSDS portal using this http://intranet.scout.org three weeks prior to course commencement date of respective intakes. Late applications will not be accepted.

Should you have any clarifications, please contact Mr Goh Kah Meng, Examiner at
