The name of the unit in Venturing is officially a "Venturing Crew". Because
I am not involved with the Boy Scout Division, I have not read the Boy Scout
requirements book. Unofficially, I would assume that someone in editing or
electronic publishing may have made an error in writing that publication.
But definitely, the Boy Scout Division designation is "Venture Patrol",
which is a patrol within a Boy Scout Troop. The Venturing Division
designation is "Venturing Crew", which ia a stand alone unit, just like Cub
Scout Packs, Boy Scout Troops, and Varsity Teams.
