I am looking for direct experience in the establishement of a Venture Crew.
We have a Troop of older boys
14-15 yrs old who have been to summer camp 4 or more times.
they definitly are bored doing the same things over and over.
We thought a Venture Crew
would give them challenges apropriate to their age etc.
The early questions that came up:
Who has run/ is running a successful crew. ?
Did you attract older youth from other troops/ outside scouting.
( a very important topic)?
What did you have for activities?
Did the crew go Coed.?
Did you convert the entire troop or start a new Crew.?
I welcome any asistance.
