What are Venture crews?
Wed, 30 Apr 1997 20:07:42 -0600
My son's scoutmaster asked me to be one of his assistant scoutmasters
and to organize a venture crew. He said it is for 1st class (or more)
Boy Scouts 13yrs or older and for girls. Since I have two daughters
in that catagory I am considering it. I heard of High Advernture
scouting and co-ed Explorer posts but not co-ed Venture Crews.
I checked BSA's WWW stuff and the only co-ed program I found was
Explorer Posts (but for 14yrs and older Boy Scouts).
Okay list, I'm asking some very basic questions here. (I am an
Eagle and just finished 5 yrs with my son and a large den from Tigers
(1) Is there such a thing as "Venture crews"?
(2) What and who are they? Co-ed? Ages?
(3) Would an Explorer Post be a better option for me? (I enjoy kids
in a learning, camping, citizenship, religious environment but
am NOT a skiier, white-water rafter, hang glider, bungee jumping
kind of a guy (if you know what I mean).
(4) Can a 14+ year-old boy be in a Boy Scout troop and an Explorer
post at the same time? Can (or is) an explorer post be a sub-
element under a Boy Scout troop?
Thanx in advance!
