This is done in several communities where the same chartered partner
organization can agree that they need more than the "traditional" Pack and
Troop for their youth. They have several options:
*Charter a Varsity Team for the older boys
*Charter a Venture Crew for the older boys and their female friends
*Charter an Explorer Post for the older boys and their female friends
*all or none of the above.
In doing the chartering of the Venture Crew AND the Explorer Post, there
would have to be TWO SEPARATE PROGRAMS (as in Sea Scout Ship and
Communications Explorer Post). I'm not sure how the membership policy is
going to work out under Venturing, but under the old Exploring program, one
can be a member of *as many Explorer Posts as you have time for* (as I was a
member of a law enforcement post, a commuinications/TV/radio post, and a
community service post all at the SAME TIME (got ONE Exploring Magazine, but
appeared as a multiple on ALL THREE charters because I was also a Boy Scout
at the same time!!)
I'm sure that under the new program, there will be provisions made for
registration as both a Venture and as a Learning for Life Explorer, since
they are two separate programs; and I'm confident that we will continue to
see multiple registrations with Venturing whereby a Venture member will be
members of both a Sea Scout Ship and a Outdoor Post at the same time.
We'll see how things swing out after the National Meeting and the All Hands
Program meeting in Nashville.
