The boy does not have to choose between the programs , but he will
not be "dually registered" either. He will be "registered" with the
Boy Scouts of America in a Scout Troop, Varsity Team, or Venturing
Crew, but he will be a "participant" in an Explorer Post.
BTW, The Exploring/Venturing change took effect August 1st, but your
council may be waiting until units recharter to enact the change.
