Dear Scouts and Scouters:
Our troop has finally come to a conclusion after much talk. We
don't have either a high adventure post or a venture crew. Many of the
Junior Leaders wanted to start a Venture Crew while other scouts wanted
to start an Explorer Post. We decided with the post. I have a couple of
(1) What is the difference between a Venture Crew and High AdventurePost
Age requirements, co-ed, high adventure theme. I know a h.a. post
represented in PLC like a crew is. There is a seperate charter for
Junior & Adult Leaders differ. Post meets seperate (Post members
have to be Boy Scouts), Uniform. Are these the only differences?
(2) Do High Adventure Posts meet weekly, monthly, or at the discretion of
the Post advisor?
(3) Should troop members stay active in troop if they join a post?
(4) What is the catch with it being co-ed? I'm not sure but I think
to be a female leader present if conducting co-ed business.
(5) As a side question, why did BSA start Varsity Scouting if its the
a local team?
