This month we have officially added our fifth Venturing Crew to North Star District! St Luke’s United Methodist Church successfully completed its chartering of its new Venturing Crew. This is the first crew in Western Washington Township in many years.
Venturing Advisor Bill Cherry, long time Troop 56 Assistant Scoutmaster, says, “We would welcome older scouts from neighboring troops. More importantly, we would love to have young ladies join our crew.”
Crew 56 chartered as co-ed and would like to add more young ladies.
Crew 56 will be encouraging all participants to give back to their home scout troop. The crew seeks to enhance the value of the scout troop experience by providing older teenagers and young adults challenges that are beyond the experience and skills of boys under 14 years of age.
Scouts seeking to pursue Eagle rank must maintain their primary registration with their home scout troop and fully participate in the troop. Even so, advancement activities done with the Crew will count toward Eagle rank.
