Yes Troop 461 Yukon Pennsylvania, runs with Venture Crews.
Our current Venture Crews are:
6. Mountain Biking (Trail Riding)
Crews are started by the GBC at the request of two or more
scouts, when they have elected a crew chief and secured adult supervision
for their activities, which are scheduled through GBC. In our troop,
we require that scouts achieve First Class rank before they can participate
in Venture activities. This provides and incentive and assures that the
scout is competent in scouting methods before trying more strenuous activities.
Scouts may be in as many Crews as they wish to join. They are only
members of ONE patrol. We only have three patrols. Two are standard patrols
and the other is the leaders patrol "Ravens" which includes SPL, ASPL, QM,
INSTR, JASM and exofficialy ASM and SM. We serve as an example of a patrol
at work for the other two patrols. One is new scouts and the other is older
We have not been involved in the Varsity program.
