Congratulations to Kate Hayes of the De La Salle Venturer Group who has been accepted to go to Texas with the Chief Scout’s contingent which will be headed out there over the summer. Well done also to John Cummins and Patrick McCormack have been accepted for the Venturer Explorer Belt that is also going to the USA this year. The Explorer Belt is taking place from the 29th of June to the 16th of July.

The basic elements of the Explorer Belt are a 10 day hike, covering 200 km, while living on a limited budget and completing a number of projects along the way. The aim of the Explorer Belt is to get to know a different culture from our own, and the method is to meet people from the country concerned and learn about their way of life, their traditions and customs.
