Dragon Skin is an annual NSW Branch Venturer Scout activity that was first run in 1984.
Teams of Venturer Scouts and Guides from NSW, the ACT and Qld participate in a variety of activities that allow them to test their initiative, leadership, teamwork and technical skills against members of other Units.
Current participation is around 200 teams comprising up to 1000 Venturer Scouts and Ranger Guides supported by 600 Rovers, Leaders and supporters.
Venturers who participate must hold the Venturer Skills Award and be registered members of the Association. Guides (15 - 18) should have the equivalent.
In addition, at least one member of each team must hold a current first aid qualification.
The event is organised by the Dragon Skin Committee, responsible to the NSW Branch Venturer Scout Council.
