Thanks for clearing this up, but I guess my next question is:
What is the purpose of Venture and Varsity crews then?
Are they essentially like a patrol where they plan activities exclusive to
themselves and not open to the rest of the troop?
If so, is this to limit the activity, since it takes more experience
to participate in theses activities, until the child has had more
extensive skills in this area?
Gee...that sounds clear now doesn't it? :-)
