About Venturing Crew 97
Venturing Crew 97 is a separate scouting program offered by Germonds Presbyterian Church for older boys and girls aged 14-21. It is geared towards high adventure and fun! The program has its own Advancement and is youth led much like the scout troop is. Our schedule is listed below. The crew generally meets bi-weekly on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays of the month at Germonds. Scouts from Troop 97 and other troops are welcome to join and participate with the Crew, however we ask that all Scouts BSA advancement happen thru their home troop.
