Completing your registration

You can then select what type of ticket you would like. For example, if you were purchasing two Venturer tickets, and one Venturer wanted to do the Initiative Activity components, the ticket selection would look like the picture below.

You then follow the process of filling out the application form, completing payment at the end of this step.

A completed Parent Advice Form (Y4) or Standard Application (A4) will also need to be filled out and emailed to easterventure@sa.scouts.com.au, as we still need a physical signature to indicate parental consent.
